Spice Must Flow

Stolen from Cam Banks

Snow is the mind chiller. Snow is the little cold that brings total obfuscation. I will face my snow. I will permit it to pass over me and land on my boots. And when it has gone past I will turn to the Weather Channel to see its path. Where the snow has gone there will be bitching. Only I will refrain.

And I just now realized that I have no Dune icons! This must be fixed.

Edit: Now I have one icon. I need more!

TEoP 2008 End of the Year Letter

Dear Everyone,

Thus ends the third year of The Edge of Propinquity and we are all very happy on how it turned out. "Kendrick," "Vorare" and "Luminations" completed their third year story arcs while "Santa Maria" completed its second year story arc. All of them ended on a very good note. Also, with guest authors like Alana Joli Abbot, Dylan, Birtolo, Patrice Sarath and Seanan McGuire, our Guest Quarters were well filled this year.

The Edge of Propinquity webzine will continue publication into 2009 and its fourth year. However, all good things must come to an end. Universe stories "Kendrick" by Jennifer Brozek and "Vorare" by Ivan Ewert have ended their respective runs. Their stories have been told and it is time to put them to bed. All is not lost, both Jennifer and Ivan will be staying on with The Edge of Propinquity.

Beginning next year, we will return to with the fourth year of "Luminations" by Rick Silva and the third year of "Santa Maria" by James M. Sullivan. We will also return with two brand new universes: "Solstice" by Ivan Ewert and "Danyael" by Nick Bergeron. "Solstice" centers around a community of people who cannot quite remember who or what they are while "Danyael" centers around a single man confronted by a personal mystery.

Nick Bergeron is the newest TEoP author. This is what he had to say about himself: "Nick Bergeron was born and raised in the state of Maine, which may explain why he rides to work on mooseback. He usually parks his moose in a Microsoft parking lot during business hours while on a contract. He spends his free time pretending to be someone he's not and rolling polyhedral dice, or singing his lungs out at the local karaoke joint. From time to time he can also be found attempting to 'master the game', as the kids these days say."

While Jennifer Brozek has put "Kendrick" to rest, there is no rest for the wicked. She will continue on at The Edge of Propinquity as its Editor-in-Chief, reading the slushpile, selecting the Guest Authors, editing the Universe stories and publishing the webzine on the 15th of every month. She is leaving "Kendrick" behind into order to pursue other writing opportunities.

The TEoP family wishes everyone the best of the holiday season. May the wind be ever at your back, your future bright and your stories dark.

Jennifer Brozek
Editor, The Edge of Propinquity
