@cypnk Was it uploaded recently? The dates look like they were uploaded ~10 years ago, but I might be reading them wrong.

@christianbundy No, you read it right. It was uploaded 2010, but I saw it linked again. Never too late to bring attention to this great series 👍

@cypnk Just wow. So far I've only read the first piece in the first issue, Manuscript Found In A Typewriter, but it's got me hooked!

@cypnk i think Rucker contributed to it didn't he? It's so long ago.

@cypnk I was a interviewed in Mondo 2000, so there. I can't remember if I wrote a piece for it...

@cypnk I was interviewed by Judith "St Jude" Milhon. She put glammy makeup on my face for the photo.

@cypnk i would never read the interview as I'd just wince and go, "oh god, whaaat? Is that the best I could do? Christ. HOw depressing."

@GrandHighInquisitor Hahaha! Life is an astronaut on the warp drive ship of time. So much changes in a blink of an eye

@cypnk and yet I'm still writing novels and getting them published (Stormland, coming out next year) and still in rock bands
