So once upon a time (about a year ago) a boy thought it would be a cinch to put together a book and publish it. He had two friends who warned him against it because A) short story collections typically don’t sell well and B) print is going down like a T-Rex on a Cretaceous morning. But, luckily, these friends were very good friends and they supported the boy with the bold idea just the same and brought their incredible talents to the project.
Thank you, Ms. Ash, for an unmatched editing skill that has taken our humble webzine into ever widening circles. You are a class act on the rise to the toppermost and I am glad to be able to call you friend and partner.
Thank you, dMix, for landing the cover artist and formatting this beast and your countless hours of devotion to details. You make us look so good. You are BTAP.
And thanks to the many writers who make up this collection. Trusting us with your stories is an honor we take very seriously and I hope we have done you proud.
