    @Alan - Like steevo, I'm not seeing the cover pic.

    I guess I'm going to have to take the interstellar jump and get into e-books etc. I'd buy it as a physical entity, though.

    Thanks for the update, Warped Savant, and good luck.

    @Alan - Buzzkill McFlecky, I am today.

    No. But I don't trust my eyes - they are very sore!

    I can see it. Looks good, I like the minimalist design.

    Phew! I dunno what went wrong the first time around, but I'm just glad it's up now.

    Glad you guys like it! I'll finish adding in the names and give it a few tweaks, see if I can tighten it up a bit. Suggestions for doing so would be more than welcome!

    Alan -- I love the cover idea! Something about the G and T in 'getting there' just doesn't quite look right to me... maybe if they were capitals instead? I don't know... but yeah, great concept.

    Steve -- If we do it as a physical book I'll definitely need your help. It wouldn't be very big, there's only 9 (I have to check that) stories and they range from 2 - 5 pages... If I remember right, listing it on Amazon restricts you from selling it on other pages / in other formats for 3 months. (But I could be wrong on that.)

    Love the cover. The colour scheme has the feel of the penguin classics

    Hey, that's my name. Sorry, it looks like I missed a lot. Where are we at?
  4.  (9872.333)
    Currently we are looking at the cover design by Alan Tyson, I'm going through the stories again and wondering where all of my edits went, and I'll be sending them all out again as I didn't get them all back from people and can't seem to find the ones that I did get back.

    And I'm trying to figure out how people want this published. There's 9 stories, they range from 2 to 5 pages long.

    Oh, I like Alan's cover, if you sent me something for edits it disappeared into the ether for I do not recall seeing it. As for publication I am feeling comic size may suit the 30 some pages.
  5.  (9872.335)
    Hey @warped savant. I never got any edits from you for my story The Robot Was. So if you sent them please send it again. I prefer physically book but your the editor so do either way is fine by me.
  6.  (9872.336)
    Shawn -- I`m going through them all again just to see if there's other things that I missed or suggestions that I didn't catch the first time around. I'll be sure to post on here when they get sent out. (I plan on sending them all at one time so that it's easier to track and to make sure that I actually sent them all.)
  7.  (9872.337)
    Maybe you should list the stories you have got here, that way we can see if any of ours are missing and get them back to you.
  8.  (9872.338)
    I have:
    Shore Leave - Bram E Gieben
    Eschatology's Muse - Ben Durbin
    Flying While Bearded - Corey J White
    Night Drive - Jason Beamish
    Schneestern - Steve Toase
    Striking Out by ummm.... someone.... Also, to that someone: Is that the title you want to use? (You indicated it was a working title)
    The Dappin Men - Rob Spalding
    The Falling Waltz - Rob Spalding
    The Robot Was - Shawn Scott Smith

    I'm sure I owed you some revisions. I have the notes you gave me, going to dig them out. Thanks again for including my story.

    Striking Out was me (Steven Ormosi), and yeah that title will work fine. Sorry I didn't put my name on it, I'm a silly bastard.
