A little bit of poignance

I’ve begun the process of changing Mythic Delirium from a print ‘zine to an e-zine. I received this touching note today from a longtime subscriber.

Been reading since Issue 6 — I will miss you! (I don’t have a computer.) Thanks and best of luck in the future.

MD6

 

Issue 6 came out in 2002, and featured several creative and off-kilter poems by Ian Watson and David C. Kopaska-Merkel, as well as one of the last poems by the late Keith Allen Daniels to see print and a poem by Sonya Taaffe, “Sedna,” that’s still one of my favorites. At that time we were officially part of DNA Publications — Weird Tales was our sister magazine! It surprises me, sometimes, how long this little zine has been around and what adventures it’s had.

Of course I’m writing a nice note back to go with the copy of my very first issue that he requested to satisfy his subscription.

By the way, the latest print issue is out (I’ve been too busy to promote it! But it is out, nonetheless), and early subscriptions to the electronic version are available too.

It ain’t over yet.

How hard would it be to make issues available in print at one of the on demand places for a limited time period?

It would be pretty expensive, more expensive than what I spend now.

I know the per-copy cost goes up substantially, but is the set-up cost bad?

It depends on who you use. Lightning Source set up fees, about $80 per book, would stack up quickly. CreateSpace (Amazon) has no setup fees but of course you limit your customers to buying everything through Amazon. Not much good for a guy with no computer, hee.
