SPECIAL MEMORIAL: Today would have been Karen Lynn Davidson’s 60th birthday. Had Karen not died from cancer last May 17th, today she would be celebrating the fruits of her labor, her support and her love with the successful funding of the Amazing Stories Kickstarter. Karen funded Amazing Stories by working out of the home while I worked on the magazine. Oh, sure, I did whatever I could to make that easier for her – driving her to work every day, taking care of a lot of the daily BS we all have to deal with, cooking our meals, the laundry, running the errands (even cleaning, though that was something she actually enjoyed doing herself), and I would do it all again in a heartbeat, but I never want it to be forgotten that without that sacrifice on her part, none of this – NONE – would have been possible. So, whenever you’re thinking about Amazing Stories, whenever you are wont to credit our success, remember Karen, and remember that this website and the forthcoming print magazine would never have been without her.
At 30:23:56:00 on 4/7/2018, the EPC Amazing Stories rocketship received a GO for launch and throttled up its engines and cleared the tower! A mere few seconds later it passed through MaxQ, successfully completed its roll manuever and entered high orbit, while it prepares for its journey to the stars! Thank you to everyone, most especially including the newly designated 1st Platoon of the 1st Regiment of the 1st SF Cavalry Brigade, who rode over the hill (sunset in the background), bugles and drums blaring, in epic Hollywood fashion!
