"Keep away from small people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great, make you feel that you, too, can become great." - Mark Twain 1835-1910, Humorist and Writer
Check our Table of Contents, because we have a wonderful lineup of compositions for you. This is a combined issue though it will show on the Blog as simply July as it comes out right after midnight on July one. I hope everyone has a safe Fourth of July.. let's not set any fires anywhere, so if there is a fireworks ban where you are, please observe it.
All our regular columnists are back besides Peg Jones and John I. Blair, but Blair did send some of his poetry. We could be heavy on poetry but it's all good this issue and even your editor has one, "Shoestring." As I just had cataract surgery, I'm cutting this column short and you can find your favorite writers without my help. We have M. Jay Mansfield, John I. Blair, Phillip Hennessy, and Bruce Clifford with poetry and the three articles are extra nice.
The continuing story by Mark Crocker, "Rabbo Tales," adds Chapter 11, "Visitors" of Book One of this adult fantasy and will end this book with Chapter 12 to be published in September. Book Two will follow shortly. Mark Crocker thanks all his readers who have kept up with the fantasy and all compliments are duly noted and appreciated. He hopes it has been as much fun reading it as it has been for him to write it.
See you in September!
