The 2001 issue of Mythic Circle is somewhat late. I have all the usual excuses and some unusual ones too. My job, as usual, keeps me busy. Besides that, I no longer of the energetic help of Trent Walters, who, preoccupied with medical school and his own writing, resigned as coeditor. I had to muddle through by myself as best I could. However, Trent did contribute a short story and a review, which appear within these pages.
