Subject: 'Atomic Mouse #3' due out soon!

The issue containing an FK parody of SFA's comic book Atomic Mouse #3 is
scheduled to be on the shelves in 2 to 3 weeks. Keep in mind the parody is NOT
the entire comic book, just one of the stories, but this is a fun, all-ages
comic book.

The art is by Joe Staton, an award winning comic book artist responsible at
various times for E-Man, Batman, Green Lantern, Guy Gardner, Scooby Doo,
Archie, Metal Men, etc.

I've received many e-mails asking about ordering on-line. The store I shop
at, which is not on-line, has offered to do phone orders but it won't be until
the comic is out that I will get the info. Plus, he's worried about having
enough copies so shipping may be slow. However, on the plus side, I'll be able
to autograph those before they are mailed if you patiently wait for me to have
time to go to the store.

Also, and I'm sure this will be quicker, I've noticed the publisher's website
does allow you to order directly from the publisher. However, I can't
autograph these before they are mailed.


The sad news is that this could be the comic's final issue. They have some
big comic book folks wanting to write and draw it, but I'm told sales are not
good. WAAAAAAAH! (I love this book and was hoping to get to write another
Maybe sales will be up for issue #3 <g>

On a personal note, I'm really hoping to get to write backup stories for one
of their other publications. If you truly love the story I've written, and not
just because of the parody aspect, please let the publisher know. Of course
I'd love to hear from you too, but for me to keep writing for SFA, the
publisher needs to hear from readers.

I've also been asked if I'd autograph comics if people mailed them to me. Of
course I'm not about to post my address here, but if people will contact me
privately *WHEN THE COMIC COMES OUT,* we can make arrangements. Just please
understand I may not even get paid for this project (it depends on sales, I
think) so I'm going to have to ask people to provide a self-addressed STAMPED
envelope for return. If you are in Canada or overseas, we'll work something out
for returning it to you.

Yes, I'm very excited! Although I do have a regular publisher
(www.tandra.com), he has moved from paper to on-line and CD-Rom publishing.
There's just something special about knowing your name is on a paper publication.

Subject: Miklos

Does anyone know how many episodes Miklos appeared in?  I can only think of Bad
Blood.  And does anyone have sound files for him?  I know it's a long shot, but
I'm trying to get a handle on his speech patterns.


"Eternal nights too short,
How quickly melt away,
With all the love we shared once,
Forever in a Day."

I don't remember how many episodes Miklos appeared in, but one you might also
want to  check out is Fate Worse then Death.  He has some speaking parts in that
one from what I can recall.  I don't think I've ever heard any sound files on
him or know where you can get them.  Does anyone else have any ideas?

Subject: GWD in Lear

One of the papers Amanda didn't mention was *The New York Sun*.  Here's
what they had to say about Ger:

     "The secondary plot, the shadow story of Gloucester, his good son Edgar,
and bastard son Edmund, is blessed with three fine actors.  The superb Geraint
Wyn Davies makes Edmund an agreeable villan.  He doesn't cackle and rub hands
together.  There is an appealing matter-of-factness in his soliloquies about
his plans to disinherit his brother and betray old Gloucester.  Mr. Davies also
knows how to work a room: When he wonders aloud which of Lear's daughters he
should woo, several people in the audience offered suggestions."

As to the last sentence, I can vouch for that.  The night I saw it he stretched
out this part *until* he got a response.  I think most of the audience was
stunned that their participation was expected. You know, the *reverance of the
bard* thing.  The more I think about it though, the more I believe that
audience participation was expected in the time period Shakespeare's plays
were originally performed.  Opinions?

I went up with a special tour group for Stratford Members, and it was really a
5-star weekend.  They put us up at the Plaza, took us to see "Don Giovanni" at
the Met, a private tour at the Metropolitan Art Gallery, and fed us lavishly
all weekend.

At dinner before "Don Giovanni", we were seated with actors from "King Lear".
My group was seated with Steven Russell, who played the Duke of Cornwall.  He
broke the ice by introducing himself and his character, then he got this crazed
look in his eyes and said, "I get to pop out the eyes!"  It's not an
ice-breaker that could be used at just any gathering.

Of course, "King Lear" on Saturday night was truly the highlight of the weekend.
Amanda's synopsis of the play was excellent, and Ger looked great in costume.
I wasn't the only one in this non-FK group to voice this opinion.

I was in row K orchestra seating.  As I described to one friend, close enough
to see the actors spit at each other, but well out of the splash zone.

Being with a group, I didn't go to the stage door afterward, but I have had the
opportunity to do so at other performances of Ger's.  (Last spring in Chicago,
he was more than gracious to the fans that stayed after his performances in Do
Not Go Gentle.)  One of the perks our group received was an autographed
playbill in our packages with Sunday's schedule.

This was the first time Stratford had offered a trip like this to its members,
and it went very well, so hopefully it won't be the last.  It made my first
trip to NYC very enjoyable.

Subject: For Kristin Lehman Fans

Kristin Lehman is playing in the new CBS drama "Century City" on Tuesday
nights at 9:00. Below is an excerpt from an interview she gave the SciFi

SF: Kristin Lehman, your character is described as being "genetically re-
engineered."  What does that mean?

KL:  It's the concept of, as we know now, genetically modified foods, enhancing
certain things, taking our certain things.  She was part of an experimental
program that looks at the possibility of eliminating suseptibility to certain
diseases and enhancing certain qualities that will ensure long life, health and
success in society.

[But] I've played her as completely human, just having the knowledge that
there are certain things that she's not susceptible to.  She is innately
strong.  She is innately smart.  She is all of these things.  And that also
brings up some really interesting paradoxes, like how does that affect one's
emotional life?

The entire cast interviews for the show are available at the SciFi Channel

Posted with Don's permission, thanks Don!


I received an E-mail that Carlo Rota's dog was taken in California. Carlo,
as many LCA attendees know, has been a faithful supporter of Lights,
Camera, Auction, Nigel Bennett and Jon Cassar's charity
organization.  Carlo's contributions have helped many, now he needs our
help.  His beloved dog, Echo, was taken, or "borrowed", as he phrases it,
in the Los Angeles area. I would appreciate it if any fans in that area
would please print out this flyer and distribute it. If you live in the
area, please keep your eyes open for this pup, if you can, please drop a
flyer off at your local pet shelter and police dept.

The flyer can be found at:

Thank you in advance for your assistance!
