Yeah, the gap between issues is widening.
This may have been the Charity issue. They were so strapped for cash at one point, the editor asked us to donate material so the whole issue wouldn't be reprints.
Also around this time, to compensate for the lack of compensation, I requested and received a title and mention in the masthead, becoming Traveling Editor for a couple of issues. It was the only title I would hold until my day job gave me a bogus "associated director" title.

Notice they're now "picking the top 10 Simpson episodes." The mag started drifting into prose land.

I was all over this issue! Which is probably why I wasn't in the next couple.
Freelance writer, still hacking away.
