Lots and lots to see and read, just in time for the Holidays.

New Columbia Part III of III

Hey, Doc,

Please note that New Columbia is a novel not a novella (as listed on the cover of the new issue) and that this is Part III of III Parts.

Thanks,

J. B.

Oh bother. I'll try and get that fixed at some point.

Bother Bother

Actually, Doc, I think it should read Part 3 of 3 - regular numerals not Roman ones.

As I recall, it was only "Zod" that ever had 111 chapters- or more! :D

You may well recall correctly. Most of us who remember that story have been trying desperately to forget it. :)

What? You mean the first 18 chapters were just a teaser? Where were they published? (I'm pretty sure it wasn't here.)

How can I find them?

Yeah, I read Zod in your Archives, years ago.

As far as I know, I've read everything published here.

And boy, did that one stand out.

Though as I recall, there was some humor involved.

As I recall, each section had several chapters- some of them quite short. I think the last few sections Rob posted were huge chunks of the manuscript. That was at the point in Aphelion's history when the zine stopped being a one-man hobby and developed a staff of editors to turn it into the amazing phenomenon it is today.

I remember Zod fondly... Well, I fondly remember the *reading* of it. :) I seem to recall that it needed a lot of proofreading and doing the HTML was not easy at all. Acres and acres of single-line paragraphs, three or four styles of emphasis, and other oddball quirks.

Lovely, funny story. Painful web page layout. That about sums it up.

Issue number and date wrong inside new issue

Sorry to bring another "bother," but the Issue Number and date for the December issue are wrong inside the issue. The cover is correct, but inside the issue it still has the November Issue Number and Date.

New issue fixes

Now that the holidays are fully over (even Three Kings Day!), I would like to re-submit my request for fixes to the new issue:

1) The Issue Number and Date for the December issue are wrong inside the issue. The cover is correct, but inside it still has the November Issue Number and Date.

2) On the cover, the reference to my novel should be something like:
"The Conclusion of New Columbia : a Novel by J. B. Hogan"

Thank you,

J. B.
