MY YEAR IN REVIEW: A LIST OF 2015 COLUMNS  

I know I didn’t do a column every week of 2015; first we had to go visit my in-laws in Missouri to help them move into a “senior” facility, and then I took a month off for Christmas and New Year’s. So this year was a bit shorter than the last one. I’ll try to do better for 2016, I promise. I hope that if you missed any of my columns last year, you’ll be able to catch up with the help of this little list. I’ll give you the title of each one as an actual clickable link. So let’s get started, eh?

*NOTE: Beginning with #87, all published columns are misnumbered. So what was published as #88 is actually #87. I somehow lost track, and it’s too time-consuming to go back and renumber them all. This list follows the incorrect numbering scheme. Bleah.

#125 didn’t appear in 2015; I took the rest of the year off to work on my office. Believe it or not, I’m nearly done clearing it up (it was basically a hoarders’ paradise… without the food items and vermin). Found some really cool stuff, some of which I’ll share with you in coming weeks or months.

Since this column was basically just a listing, I don’t expect many comments, but… if you do have anything to say about this column—compliments or brickbats—please post your comment here—it’s easy, and you can even sign up to get automatic notifications of new columns! (I do publish corrections when you send me information, and even apologies if I got something egregiously wrong.) Or you could comment on Facebook; I post links every Friday when a new column comes out. My opinion is, as always, my own, and doesn’t necessarily reflect the views of Amazing Stories or its owners, editors, publishers or other bloggers. See you next week!
