What have we done with our time?

All those Sterling blogs, every weekday. Jeeze. Thanks, Bruce.

Every week, Dave Langford has kept us informed, Richard Kadrey has terrified us, and Michael Swanwick has taught us to delight in the panoly of human folly. Every week.

And the past year has brought two stories by the gracefully ironic Ben Rosenbaum, another by gonzo Texan Neal Barrett, Jr., a future ancestor tale by Kiini Ibura Salaam, a tour de force from the ineffable Rudy Rucker, and his son, Rudy Rucker Jr., and a meditation on the distant past by the bemused Doug Lain. We've also published short-shorts by Walter Jon Williams, Sally Gwylan, Michael Kandel,Daniel Abraham, Leslie What, Ellen Klages, John Kessel, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, James Patrick Kelly, and Maureen McHugh.

Also in the past year, we've raised too little money to keep going, and I've paid the rest out of my pocket.

I said in February that I needed $5000, and I've gotten an even $3700. My profound thanks to everyne who has contributed. Over the next week, I'll be posting some more stories and a play by Neal Barrett, featuring Howard Waldrop, Leslie What, and Nisi Shawl in the lead roles.

And I'll be asking for the rest of the money that I need to continue. We'll see how that turns out.

Whatever happens, it's been a fun two years for me, and I hope you've enjoyed it too.

Cheers,
Eileen
