    'The End: Visions of Apocalypse' is my vote.

    (But what do we call the sequel?)

    Well, then. The masses have spoken. TE: VOA it is.

    We can all talk about a sequel when I get this one out to everyone's satisfaction.

    I'll be going through everything next weekend to commence putting together all the files. So far, so good. But I've only gotten through five stories.

    Wish me luck!

    Quick update: Things are moving along! Got the document mostly together. Hopefully will get it out this weekend to a proof-reader (one final pass) and CMTheAuthor to do the formatting magic! I hope.

    Ha! You don't want to know what I thought when I read bits...

    Anyway, yes, well, I always figured there would be stragglers. And even some who would forfeit submitting a bio or blurb.

    (rubs hands together gleefully)

    I get to write it! Woohoo! The unsuspecting author will be shocked by his own past and motives.

    If you're referring to me! It's in and done. Mehehe.

    I have really struggled finding the Internet in Turkey, which makes it hard. But now I'm in Istanbul and I've got a reliable connection, so if there is anything you need, let me know.

    First person bios are a little weird to read...

    Anyway, I've got my hands on the thing now, so you bet this will happen soon. Editing time, go!

    I was worried about that, too. Should we standardize them (3rd person)?

    LOL whoops!

    And yes, bios in first person are a bit unusual.

    There's only one. The culprit has been notified, and we are adjusting as necessary.

    Funny thing, I didn't even notice until very late in the process and thought it would be okay, but I guess not. No worries! All under control. (Famous last words...)

    Yes, those are indeed famous last words...seeing as four of the bios have first-person. Have fun...

    Ha!

    Hmmm, how did those slip past me...

    Norman's bio was really good, so that stuck in my head. I'm not saying that everyone else's was bad, just that his stood out, so that's the only one I remembered. I'll go through it tonight and identify the guilty parties. However, I may not contact everyone who has a first person bio. If it is just a matter of changing "I" to "he/she", then I'll do that rather than bug everyone.
