  Introductions  

I know you have waited a long time for this issue and I am grateful for your patience. As announced in the last update announcement I must change this newsletter to once every two months due to a severe lack of time. :(

Second, if you are interested in writing articles, book reviews or similiar things for this newsletter, then please mail me. I would really appreciate your help. Same goes for suggestions what I should include in future.

  New Stories  

"Clash of Fates II - Chapter 12" by Robert DeFrank"
A Star Wars fanfiction:

"...
     "I think I may have miscalculated."
     The sentence seemed to hang suspended in the air between them. Then Thrawn was up and moving and Parck realized that the sounds had lasted only seconds, now they existed only in his mind.
..."

"Silverymoon" by Mark Mellen"
A Forgotten Realms story:

"...
     "I want you to tell those worthless humans, that all known Harpers must be killed, in secrecy and very subtly. They need to kill any they see. Failure to do this will result in their death. And I want that surface elf alive, whoever he is. That is all."
..."

Read them!

Windhaven by George R. R. Martin Windhaven by George R. R. Martin et.al. (UK version here, read an excerpt)

I believe everyone knows of the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin. Windhaven is an early novel by this famous author and was now rereleased 20 years after its initial publication. If you are a fan of George R.R. Martin you should take a look at it.

Song for Lya by George R. R. MartinWindhaven is a thought-provoking book, challenging us by depicting the potential consequences when young idealists break ancient traditions. The authors gave us a heroine, a planet, and a story that teach as they entertain. (--Diana M. Gitig, amazon.com)

Another of George R.R. Martin's reprints is A Song for Lya: And Other Stories, a collection of 10 short stories that are an excellent mix of horror and science fiction.
