      Dear Reader (Constant and otherwise):

      Big news, wonderful news, fun news, where? Here, my sweet, here. Lots of it,
      too. Did we miss a month, or it it just the odd weather producing strange

      ~~~ Kelly Link & Ray Vukcevich: Award Nominations, News, & Tours

      Kelly Link's story, "Louise's Ghost" from STRANGER THINGS HAPPEN is on the
      Final Ballot for the Nebula Award!

      Also, both STRANGER THINGS HAPPEN and Ray Vukcevich's MEET ME IN THE MOON
      ROOM are on the Preliminary ballot for the Bram Stoker Award. So,
      excitingly, is Ray's wonderful story, "Whisper."

      You can read "Whisper" here:

      Ray will be reading at Norwescon (March 28-31, 2002) as part of the Philip
      K. Dick Award ceremony and also at the traditional group reading put on by
      the Talebones folks.

      MEET ME IN THE MOON ROOM gets reviewed here:

      ...and is no.11 in a the SF Site's Reader's List...and STRANGER THINGS
      HAPPEN is no.5! SF Site, like Locus and Tangent, are great resources for
      spec fic readers. It's great when the information flow goes both ways.

      Ray Vukcevich has contributed an essay to the Very Interesting People
      section of BookSense.com.

      Kelly Link reads at KGB Bar with four other readers -- identities unknown!
      -- on March 12th. [KGB Bar, 85 East 4th St. NYC 10003 212.505.3360]

      March 25, 8 PM, Kelly will read at St. Mary's UNCG Episcopal Center, 930
      Walker Avenue, Greensboro, NC -- Part of the Distinguished Visiting Writers

      Kelly will be touring in May 2002 with Shelley Jackson (THE MELANCHOLY OF
      ANATOMY). They will be driving from Brooklyn to California and back,
      stopping off at the places below for respite, I mean readings. They're both
      good, fun, experienced readers (we've heard them both a couple of times
      before!) and these nights are sure to be good times.

      If your town's not on the list, sorry! Maybe later, or next year? Or,
      perhaps Shelley is going there herself (or with Ben Marcus), you can look

      Here's the list with links. It is kept up-to-date.

      Looks like one, or maybe both, of these intrepid short-story
      writers/cross-country travelers will be keeping the world up to date with
      their findings as they wend their way from Brooklyn to the left coast and
      back. More when we here know more about it...

      STRANGER THINGS HAPPEN is now in its third printing. (Thanks!)

      Fun review of STRANGER THINGS HAPPEN in New York Magazine:

      ~~~ Free Books, Really?

      No, sorry, but, if you order our two new Carol Emshwiller titles by May 1,
      2002, they ship for free!

      "Water Master" from Carol's new collection of short fiction (title a
      closely-guarded secret!) was recently published on Scifiction:

      iller1.html [Note broken url]

      Kim Stanley Robinson, author of THE YEARS OF RICE AND SALT, says of Carol's
      new novel, THE MOUNT:

      "We are all Mounts and so should read this book like an instruction manual
      that could help save our lives. That it is also a beautiful funny novel is
      the usual bonus you get by reading Carol Emshwiller. She always writes them
      that way."

      Shelley Jackson, who did such a wonderful job with the cover painting for
      STRANGER THINGS HAPPEN, is in the midst of painting the cover for THE MOUNT.
      It looks great. Maybe we can work out some way for y'all to get a looksee at
      it before the rest of the big old world.

      Order! Order, Order in the House!

      ~~~ Vanilla Sky gets Gone Over

      Past contributor (see if you can find a picture of him on the LCRW website.
      Hint, he's dancing) Jack Cheng sends us a dispatch from the despairing
      depths of the drama critics desk. (Did all the 'd's dumb down that
      declaration?) He went to see "Vanilla Sky" and was not particularly
      impressed. Read this and save yourself a couple of dollars at the video

      ~~~ Chapbooks!

      Looks like we will have two chapbooks out this summer. They're going to be
      great. Give up now, start scanning your change into your computer so that
      you can send us -- wait, maybe that's not how ecommerce works. We'll get
      back to that later.

      Anyway, Judith Berman and Alex Irvine are the latest authors to embark on
      the Small Beer Train. The chapbooks are going to be just fabby. They will
      both be published in July 2002.

      ~~~ What else is going on in the world of zines? A small sample:

      Kiss Machine 4 is out (we gave #3 for sale...)

      Urban Pantheist No.3 is almost done, more good stuff from Jef Taylor. We
      have nos. 1&2 back in stock if you're curious.

      Xerography Debt (note changed name due to huge daft corporation lawyers
      finding work for themselves). No.7 is now out, and should be ordered in
      paper form for maximum browsing pleasure. New reviewers (including one
      GJGrant), more reviews, not to be missed!

      ~~~ Not In The News

      -- Small Beer Press Makes Bid on Energy Sink Enron
      "We lose less money than them, right?"

      -- Airline Employees Send George W. Bush Pretzels
      "We had to do something with them..." [Cough]

      Time Out New York asked Michael Moore, "Who's going to buy your book, STUPID
      WHITE MEN?"
      He replied, "Smart black women." It's a fun read -- albeit painful in

      More links to our books. If we don't who will?

      Oh yeah, the real reason the internet was invented, so that you could go
      direct to the source and order CDs by Kelly Hogan:

      And Neko Case:

      Stop messing around! Don't buy that new toothbrush -- use a twig! It worked
      for your grandparents! Buy these CDs instead!
