"Our folklore column will return next time!"
So did I promise in the July / August 1991 newsletter. Unfortunately,
we were unable to produce a newsletter for the rest of the year.
When we returned to publishing at the beginning of 1992, we
adopted an austere new printing schedule. Henceforth, the newsletter
and column would appear only four times a year. We would adhere
to this schedule for three years.
For our January / March '92 column I wrote a fun little piece
on Automotive Urban Legends - we subsequently put that one online
for our January / February '98 edition, which is where you'll
find it archived.
There were three more issues (and, presumably, columns) in
1992, but unfortunately all three are currently missing.
(In case this news is starting to dismay any of you, I hasten
to state that we are only missing a total of 7 columns altogether
as far as I know, one of which, our Shirley Jackson tale, is
safe as it was reprinted and expanded in September / October
'98. We'll find the other six soon enough.)
Now it was 1993, and that March was Book Again's 7th anniversary.
I knew just what to write about for our January - March column
