Did Matt and Sloano really have that many published or did it just feel like a lot?

IIRC, there was a period of about 1-2 years when they seemed to be getting letters printed almost every issue of the Meg, but that was when it was monthly. It probably didn't help that they sent their letters in as a pair, but I don't think they could have had more than 20-25 letters each.

What are us letter writers supposed to un-tie?


I've had a few letters printed, you can find them here:
Megazine 1.16 & Progs 847, 1276, 1309 & 1371.
Better set your phaser to stun.

I once had a letter printed, back when the internet was a nipper.
As I was new to this whole new-fangled email thingy, I used his name and he got all the credit.
He'd have had my mug had I bothered to include a snail-mail address too...



Oh yeah, and the Trout came second on that compo to become a Judge-cadet, back in prog 500-and-something.
Dan Dare will return for a new adventure soon, Earthlets!

I had a letter published in the same issue as my terror tale appeared...

In all modesty, is this unique? (apprence in a prog as both as a droid and a letter writer)

I had a letter in Prog 2000 as well, and Prog 2003, and about 4-5 others.  I should write again and get some more postcards.

One.

And one rejected, consigned to the bin, never again to see daylight (bit ranty shouty).

Who else has had their letters REJECTED?
