From Anselm Hollo, this: Edward Dorn, great poet and spirit, passed away peacefully, surrounded by loved ones, at approximately 10:30 p.m. Rocky Mountain Time Friday night, 10 November 1999. And we are all there together / time will wave as willows do / and adios will be truly, yes, (Dorn, If It Should Ever Come).

We are saddened by the passing of yet another great poet.

You will notice in this, our third Cybercorpse, memorials to two other greats, Rudy Burkhardt, a great friend of Exquisite Corpse, and Paul Bowles who was a friend and a contributor. We never intended our zine to become an anthology of farewells, but as we go on, and time goes on, it is inevitable. None of us will get out of this century alive, so "enivrez vous!" as the French master said.

On a cheerful note, this is an extraordinary issue of our lively little beast. You will notice as you navigate its rapids that there are many new writers and that our regular contributors shine brighter than ever. Let us know what difficulties you encounter in this medium, which is as new to us as it is to you. We want to make sure, above all, that we are being read.

This past year we made friends with some amazing Mexican writers whose work we are featuring in both Spanish and English, or only in Spanish. (It is the World Wide Web, isn't it?) Read Mauricio Montiel, Monica Nepote, and Juvenal Acosta! You will meet them in these pages again.

We have also begun the publication of three serial novels, by Shelley Berc, Mark Spitzer, and Julian Semilian. We hope that they will pique your interest and draw you ever tighter into our intimate and sexy web.

Have a groovy century and a grand millennium!
