This year will see one new issue of Pith.  It is going to be amazing.  Next year will have two issues.  2019 is up in the air.  By 2020, the plan is for Pith to be quarterly, as was the original intent.  Your moral, emotional, and spiritual support is essential and integral to this endeavour.  I thank you all.

Still in the planning stages, the next issue of Pith is already beginning to take shape.  As always, it will be better than the previous.  Your input is very much desired.

We discovered two new physical distribution points today.  Exciting times in the world of print!

Today saw a lot of design work.  Don't get too used to this layout.  More changes are coming soon.

The e-mail connection got re-established today.  It was a rush to look back at some of the submissions from years past.  We're really looking forward to the new ones that are coming.

Pith has always existed without any paid advertising.  There have been a few issues that would not have happened without the generous support of some donors who wished to remain anonymous.  We are still immensely grateful to those individuals who made sure that the mission of Pith could continue.

As you've noticed, it's been over a year since the previous update.  Like most of the world, Pith, too, had a pretty eventful year.  Stories will be shared and toasts will be drunk!  (It always cracks me up when Melba gets tipsy.)

As has always been true of Pith, there have been at least as many behind-the-scenes stories as there have been stories in the magazine itself.  I will share a few of the more interesting ones as time permits.


Be patient.  It's going to take a while.

Where We're At...

    Right now, next October's issue of the magazine in the most preliminary stages.  I have put out the call to some of our previous contributors, as well as making a couple of forays with new writers and artists.  These efforts will expand considerably in the next few weeks.

    At the same time, work is progressing on the website.  As some of you may recall, Pith, the Website used to have quite a number of pages with various stories, poems, and other amusements on it.  It is not known at this point whether we will still be able to retrieve the previous website, but most of those works still exist on various harddrives, so the hope is to bring back many of those writings and photos.

    Additionally, certain other features are being designed for your webbing pleasure.  There are plans for one or more "Story Rounds," so that we can all play together, as well as probable blog pages, and maybe even a "You Get to Bitch!" page (no promises).

    The best news of all, fellow Pithians, is that we are back on track, and back in business.  As with all previous editions, expect every issue to be better than the last.  Also, expect to be a part of it.  Pith thrives on the input of the community.  Make your voice heard.  Bother me.  It works.

Piece, and Peace,

Your indefatigable editor,

Randy Cromwell
