Chain Mail:  Amazing Stories Interviews 13 Authors From the Book View Cafe
Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5 Part 6 Part 7

In this intro I shall explain that what you are viewing is not really the new Amazing Stories.
What you are actually looking at is the Relaunch Prelaunch of the new Amazing Stories.

There have been many people who have expressed their support, enthusiasm, excitement and best wishes for the return of Amazing Stories.
To all who have done so, my deepest and most heartfelt thank you.    There will be a place for each and everyone of you here.

The second Relaunch Prelaunch issue will premiere August 1st, 2012 and features an Amazing cover by David Hardy (Retro Rocket – available as a print along with much more David Hardy art on his website AstroArt) and a David Hardy Retrospective – from Martian War Machines to Bhen, the enigmatic, fun-loving alien featured on many Fantasy & Science Fiction covers.

Fiction

by Jack Clemons
Wildcatter dropped onto Hawking a month ahead of perihelion. We slammed in after losing a brutal tug of war with the singularity that started when we closed to 60 klicks. I was in the cockpit running a spectrometry survey through the assayer ay-eye during our final approach. I’ve flown a lot of A.U.’s with McRae; he’s a damn fine pilot.

The entropy lines of the time-transporter field bowed outward above the receiving platform, distorting the small room into a grotesque, carnival-mirror reflection of itself. The field lines collapsed, sending miniature dust devils dancing over the hardwood floor. They fluttered the fringed hem of a hand-sewn quilt that was draped over a carved bed.

My friend MaryAnn Johanson is the Flick Filospher, and her website contains news, views, and reviews and is well worth following. However as two highly opinionated people we sometimes disagree.

An Introduction to Chain Mail
When Sue Lange (BVC) and I put our heads together to try and come up with something interesting, timely, fun AND do-able, we ultimately ended up with something interesting, timely, mostly fun and almost do-able.  How much so I’ll leave to the reader to decide.
Sue played the dual roles of enthusiastic supporter and willing cat herder.
