Aphelion Editorial 010

November 1997

by Dan L. Hollifield

Aphelion Webzine and Cris Lawrence's story "Time and Time Again" have both been nominated for a "Top 10 on the Internet" award presented by the Preditors & Editors website.! The following banner and the "Vote!" button underneath this issue's story links will take you to their site so that you can cast you own vote or nominate your own favorite stories, poems, and webzines. P&E can explain the contest better than I can, but the contest ends at midnite on January 1st, so check them out and vote soon! As of Nov. 22nd, Cris' story is currently #1 in the voting, while Aphelion is holding steady as the #2 webzine. Your vote could be he one that makes us #1!

Welcome back for our 10th issue! This one is really on time! Last month's problems with Hotmail seem to have cleared up nicely and I've added a few new wordprocessors to help widen the variety of filetypes I can accept submissions in. I'm also playing around with some new HTML editors so as to speed the layout of stories.

If you'd like to be on a mailing list for notification of the update or for the upload of new issues of Aphelion then click here to send me an e-mail. Be sure to put the words Aphelion Mailing List in the Subject line of the e-mail. This mailing list will only be used to notify you of new issues and will never be given out to anyone else... 'cause I hate spam as much as you do!

In this issue there are new writers, new chapters in our continued stories, new continued stories begun, updates on our reports, our letter column, and a new cartoon.

Please visit our letter column and drop us a note. Our writers like to read the Lettercol to look for words of encouragement. Not many of you readers have the time to send e-mail to the writers whose stories you especially enjoyed. Well, that's why our Assistant Editor worked up the Letter Column Page, so folks can let everyone know what kind of job they're doing. Its helped me to realize that I need to do a better job proofreading, something that I did this issue. I may not have caught every mistake, but I caught more of 'em!

I'd like to thank those of you who have sent e-mails for your feedback. Keep those e-mails coming, folks! Without those messages we will never know what we need to improve upon. Hope you like the improvements so far!

We had 652 Readers visit Aphelion in October!

And now, I'll shut up and let you get to reading. Thanks again for visiting. Enjoy yourselves!
