From the Editor's Desk

  Many thanks to the talented contributors who are sending us the finest in speculative fiction, poetry and fantasy artwork. This is the twenty-sixth issue of Twilight Times ezine - online since July 1998.

Especial thanks to Robert Marcom, Patron of the Arts, for supporting our efforts at Twilight Times ezine. Along with patrons Jane Toombs, Anne K. Edwards, Penny Gerking, Roger A. Jurack, Suzanne S. Bridenbaugh, Pat Fredeman and Elena Naskova.

Twilight Times ezine was established to publish the works of unpublished and/or underpublished writers as well as popular SF/F authors.

We are pleased to announce that future issues of Twilight Times will be published both online and in a small press print magazine format, Twilight Times MagEzine. We feel the stories and poems available here deserve to see print.
