I really hate to do this, but today I must start this post on a sad note.

Cover by Sean E. Ali
With the just released issue 20, Pro Se Presents has ended its run.
Sales unfortunately did this noble experiment in.
Now historically, anthologies have always been a "mixed bag" from one issue to the next; but as story editor, I tried to include something for everyone in each issue.
Might not have pleased everybody every time, but no one can say we (Pro Se) didn't try.

The last issue includes:
"Aloha McCoy: Peace Broke" by Ken Janssens
"Silver and Gold" by Ethan Nahte
"Life in Pictures" by Kate Beeton
"The Golden Ticket" by Melissa Robinson
"The Idea Book" by Patti Boeckman, wife of legendary pulp author Charles Boeckman
and the cover featured novella:
"Robin Hood and the Maiden in the Tower" by I. A. Watson

Over the course of the magazine, it has been my privilege to work with the above, along with the likes of Chuck Miller, Jilly Paddock, Kevin Rodgers, Nancy A. Hansen, Ron Fortier, Teel James Glenn, Aaron Smith, Erwin K. Roberts, and so many more that I just don't have the room to list them all.
Special thanks however must be given to Tommy Hancock, who's vision to attempt such a magazine in today's market gave writers a chance at seeing their work published.

Meanwhile, in other news, The Free Choice E-zine is doing well and I have finally finished that short story that I've been mentioning for the last few weeks and am back on Alpha, Book 2: Wayward Son.

See you around the Internet.
