Okay, it’s been a long time comin’. I’ve re-designed the website completely. In doing so, I tried to make it look a little more modern. I think it’s pretty spiffy, considering that I did it myself using only OpenOffice and Microsoft Paint, and I have absolutely no training whatsoever in graphic design. What do you think?
In any case, that’s obviously not the big news. That comes in threes. 1) As is obvious from the banner, I’ve revealed my real name. I’ve been doing this, by degrees, over the last two years or so. So, it’s official. 2) There’s a button below the banner that gives easy access to the articles I’ve published under my own name. As for item #3, well…
There’s a new sheriff in town, people, and she’s a doozy. The Patter of Raindrops: The Wonderful Worlds of Hayao Miyazaki is here, after a long delay. 40 pages, 5.5 inches by 8.5 inches, three new essays, with a gorgeous cover illustration by, um, gorjus—it can all be yours for a measly five bucks. Anyone who donated $10 or more last year will be getting a copy free; if you don’t recall, shoot me an email at wbiggins2 at gmail dot com. For everyone else, please click the “zines” button for more information and to place an order.
It’s good to be back, to be out in the open, and to release a new zine into the wild.
