  We do have a back-log of letters to address, and we promise, we
*will* get to them in due time.  In fact, to reward your patience,
Haiku Gorilla _himself_ will answer the backlog of letters.
   But because of the statement of ownership included on this page,
that will have to wait for next time!  I'd just like to take the little
space we do have, then, to address a couple of concerns:
   One being the misconception that HAIKU GORILLA is some fly-by-night
attempt to rig the Rabbit Breeder's Cup for next year's RACCies
ceremony.  Nothing could be farther from the truth!  First of all, the
Cup measures quantity-- volume, not issue numbers.  Secondly, in the
spirit of fair play, I hereby _reject_ any and all nominations for the
Rabbit Breeder's Cup.  I disqualify myself from that particular race.
   The second concern of mine is for our moderator/archivist, Russ
"Eagle" Allbery.  HAIKU GORILLA is a unique series, and as such poses a
unique problem for the archivist not dissimiliar from the same problem
that arose on the Wil's Ego RACC page: namely, there are an _awful_ lot
of installments.  And so I'd like to go on record now and say that you
don't have to archive or keep the individual installments.  I'll just
post a collected version when the time is right.

Tom Russell
Director of MILOS,

"If a comic book, book, movie or novel is not somebody's fantasy
then who wrote it and to whom does it appeal to?  In order for a
shared universe to have a widespread appeal, it has to appeal on
a primal level.  If somebody says superhero comics are just 'wish
fulfillment' then he needs to explain what is entertainment that
doesn't satisfy our wishes and what satisfaction at all you can get
from it." -- Dr. Martin Phipps
