Mail Call

I received a letter from a subscriber yesterday. It was less of a letter, though, and more like a work of art. It was illustrated, had a neat, keyed map and tons of details. It's the kind of thing that someone clearly spent a lot of time on.

     I mentioned it before, but I've kept every letter ever written to me. They fill several photo boxes and from time to time I like to take them out and look at them. When someone writes you a letter, it is a gift of time and a tangible artifact of a person and place.

    I should also note that I am writing an article for Loviatar No. 3 while listening to music from the letter writer's band. Very cool!

  2. I've been sending copies of the last map you sent to me out with my mailings. They are making the rounds...
