Hi... it's been a long time!

Thirty-five years ago, I published my first not much'a nothin'. I was just shy of fifteen at the time, and my interest in fanzines had led me to respond to an announcement from Stven Carlberg (who was known as Steven at that time; the new spelling didn't come in for another year or so) of a new amateur press alliance. His apa, Myriad, sounded interesting to someone like me who enjoyed writing, drew passably well, and had access to printing--so I signed up, and began pondering a name for my first apazine.

"What are you gonna talk about in the first issue?" a friend, Gary Steele (who also became involved in the whole apa thing) asked.

"I dunno... not much'a nothin', I guess," I responded... and thus a name was born.
