Letters to the Triumvirate -- Marchiavellia 2003

A missive from John Thiel

Jerry: Well, you should have SOME mail or you'll continue to laugh at us. I tell you, it gets me a bit up-tight to scroll to the letter column because of what your reaction will be if there aren't letters. I'm always ready to write one.

I'm of the opinion that the author of the story about the man underneath him did not take formal care with his prose because he regarded his story as art rather than as literature, Mr. Fox.

Glad to see S.F. Murphy doing some writing here, and he had a very off-trail look at racial situations to present, also, that had a ghostly effect justifying its being presented in BEWILDERING.

At least one of your poems showed a beatnik perspective; I think the beats have a kind of elementary interest in SF.

You keep those issues thumping; I never miss an issue of BS.

John Thiel

John, we try to keep a really light hand on the editing. Speeling, punchuaton!; and paragraphing are about all we do, unless asked. Also, when it comes to Book Reviews, unless it's a Barbara Cartland, we'll pretty much take it.

And now a very pleasant surprise...
