Sad, but I'm really glad that you have one of Kel's stories in there. Also really glad to be sharing a TOC with her.

Lots of writers I'm happy to share the TOC with. I'm finding myself in stellar company. Not a scruffy biker to be seen, which is really my only complaint.

James, we were really pleased to get that story. And it is a grabber.

Bob, maybe Wexler's gone that way.

I'll just point out two other things I think are cool here...20 authors we've never published before and four authors making their first professional sales.

I'm not a scruffy biker, but I have published fiction in a biker magazine, if that makes Bob feel any better.

I'm thrilled to be hanging out in print with this group of folks. And I'll point out another cool stat: four of us are from the Clarion West Class of 1997. Damned if we don't run around as a group in print as well as in person.

I'm thrilled, too. My story is about cats and farmers and trolls. Oh my.

Jeff, my cats are pretty excited about it, too. I didn't let my trolls see it.

Nancy, it's great to have you and your cohorts all together.

Bob, glad you're happy now.

Nancy, I note that 2 of you are ex Milford as well.

Not to mention the Storyvillains! :-)

It's an impressive lineup. Glad to be a part of it! (and that's, what? 5 Villains, Liz?)

A very impressive line-up, Deborah. Congratulations.

I wish I could get a line-up for my mag like that!

Oops. I spelled Sarah Totton's last name wrong in my post.

Well, I've had some inquiries concerning the pub date of Polyphony 5, so I thought I'd better post something here.

This is embarrassing, but I have to be honest...I've had to push the release date off because of cash flow problems.

My best guess about a release date is October 15.

Until my creditors start accepting payment in the form of critical acclaim, there isn't much more I can do.

On the other hand, if you've been waiting for the perfect time to order something (anything) from Wheatland Press, I'd say this is a pretty good time to do it.

Deborah and Jay--

I got my contributor copies to P5. Looks great and had a fun Christmas going through and reading the other stories. First one I read was the story by Sally Carteret because I enjoyed her last story so much (as I did this one).

Sally Carteret? Isn't she the lady with a dark secret? Her bio sounded suspiciously like another's. An exercise for the reader.

With any luck, there'll be enough of them for a novel one day!

Deb, your e-mail's still broken. When are your priorities going to shift back to coffee?

Eric, glad you're enjoying the rest of the stories!
