It's been a looooooong time since the last Mythagoras. But the next one
SHOULD be out soon.

Last I spoke with Watts Martin, he said #4 should be out by NecrinomiCon
(sp?), which is just two shakes of a farm animal's tail away.

Seems after the FBI raid, and the lightning strike, their most recent
problem is an IRS audit. This issue is just CURSED!! The government
claims Mythagoras is a professional publication, and requires a publishing
liscense. Things are also bottlenecked by the fact those in charge of
Mythagoras are spread all over California, with Bill Biersdorf at the helm,
and he simply does not have the time to spend that he would like. *sigh*
Also, hee hoo handles the mail has (apparently) really goofed up on
correspondence (Watts claims a major cash-flow problem - weeellll, if
someone had actually opened their mail they would have found several
checks from me).

Anyway, I await the next issue of Mythagoras (which I ordered back in Feb).
Hopefully it won't be too long now.

Anyone have any more information? (Jimmy?)

disclaimer: I am not an official spokesman for Mythagoras, merely a concerned
contributor.

Mythagoras did not make its NecronomiCon publishing deadline [this past
weekend], and I have no other news. At least the cover has been printed.

Part of the problem seems to be because the persons involved are spread around
a lot. [We're in Florida, not California, Aleph :) ] Also, Bill Biersdorf is
the only one with access to the PO Box and the finances, so during his absence
following SDCC, nothing could really be done.

I can offer nothing except hope for a speedy return for Mythagoras.

Oops, slip o' the tongue. I was thinking Florida, but goofed on the
follow-thru. Much apologies.

Well, I'm afraid that all I know is that I was interested in submitting to
Mythagoras at the prompting of Maggie Kat (a.k.a. Maggie Fox) who is (I take
it) an assistant editor or something on Mythagoras, and Roy D. Pounds was able
to give me some ordering information. In any case, I send them a check and two
inquiries (even with an SASE and art samples) and never got a response. I
haven't heard from Ms. Kat either, so I've been wondering if maybe Tampa got
nuked or something.
