As of April 11th 2000, I am proud and a little
nervous to announce, that my e-serial novel The Sufferer's Song will be
distributed freely across the world. It has picked up extensive coverage in
Russia, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Germany, Greece, USA and China. The fact that
the eyes of the world are watching is mildly trepidatious but what the hell.
If you want to read an excerpt, find out more about me, about the story, or
simply subscribe swing by the url and take a shufty around. Thanks for
listening. Steve Savile

As of March 7th, the Ministry of Whimsy website
(www.mindspring.com/~toones/ministry.html) has entered a new phase in its
development. Short-term, the major changes are as follows:
(1) The addition of an entire novel, METRO by Jeff Edmunds. In the Metro
section of the website, you can use the Commentary message board to tell us
what you thought of the book, and of the electronic format. We invite you to
read and comment on the novel.
(2) The consolidation of our fiction and nonfiction into a section entitled
(NON)FICTION, with two new stories and a novel excerpt from author Daniel
(3) The inclusion of News on our START page, for easy access, and the
consolidation of links in a new LINKS section.
In the long term, website expert Garry Nurrish will be maintaining and expanding
our site. Garry has been designing web sites for a number of years. He now
specializes in author, small press & publisher websites and has created The
Official D.F. Lewis site, RedHedz : The website of Mike Philbin & Hertzan
Chimera, The Sufferer's Song (an e-serial novel by Steve Savile), and will soon
be starting work on Jeff VanderMeer's official website.New reviews and
interviews will be added on a quarterly basis. To receive further updates,
