Aw, well, yeah, *you* would be, but that's from the fame and
glory that comes with being the person who created MiSTings. I mean,
I think anyone who did MiSTings back in the 90s glory days did it
because they wanted to work with stories like _A Gul's Revenge_ (sorry,
but it did inspire that riff about 'one ship, one phaser, and he's
attacking Earth? That's like trying to drive in a Yugo') and _The
Away Mission_. For later things ...

Yeah, see, if you were to come out as a new author today, I
doubt you'd get the weird kind of MiSTing-celebrity status and that
very minor Internet Fame it's given you. There's this combination
of things that has to work right and I don't think you have the easy
hooks anymore that make for explosive fan reactions.


Ah ... if you're asking whether anyone does want to MiST your
newer works, by the way, I am game, although since I'm moving, changing
jobs, and getting married this month I'd have to put it on the to-do
queue. Also I admit I really want to get at this staggering piece of
children's literature from the 1910s about Fatty Coon, a raccoon who's
quite fat, not to mention loathsome, although the author doesn't seem
to have noticed that.

I do run occasional MiSTing nights over in this odd little
social hangout and more name of SpinDizzy and you're pretty much the
Famous Stephen Ratliff in the times MiSTings get mentioned over there,
too.
