Issue 3 Cover - by Zak Jarvis

The (self-referential) Pre-launch Buzz Contest is over: BUT the love is still spreading, so we're extending it with a few more prizes.

Issue 3 has gone to the printers and we should be seeing a proof any day now.  We'll make Issue 3 available to order as soon as we've approved the proof, because that's the last hurdle of real variability.

The last _5_ entries as per the rules in the (self-referential) Pre-launch Buzz Contest (entries will only be accepted on _that_ post) will then be declared the second round of winners--the last entry will receive a print copy of issue 3 and the other four will receive PDFs. 


Our grand prize winner of print copies of Issues 0-3 (inclusive) is jcvandez--we'll be shipping those as a bundle as soon as Issue 3 is ready. 

Winners of the "first ten posters", as I've counted (skipping our contributors and reviewers):

1) oddity
2) lordkertaz
3) erinmh
4) iwill
5) asimmum
6) poveyj
7) scifiwritir
8) zanzjan
9) kathi430
10) xanthalanari

Thank you all for your entries and your help with spreading the GUD love =)

UPDATE: And now the winners of the "it's not over yet!"

1) Sheila Crosby
2) gifford
3) pottygok
4) Vanessa
5) nadirsup

Sheila wins the hardcopy of Issue 3, while gifford, pottygok, Vanessa, and nadirsup will be receing PDFs via email.  Thank you to everyone who entered, and congratulations to our winners! 

Even though the contest is really over, now, please keep spreading the word!

- reddit, digg, facebook, stumbleupon, etc... please! ;)

You're welcome to.

Er, what do you mean? :)

Oh, I see ((after some off-blog discussion)). Would you really want to keep a blog on GUD? If you and others were strongly interested, I could make it happen. I generally have the feeling that folks have other places they want to do that, though.

Though on the third tentacle, I am planning on integrating some forum software at some point... (or writing some, still undecided there).

So if we can't blog, I am just gonna have to start leaving blog length comments about your your wonderful self and magazine/digest.

I love Kaolin...he is soft and squishy and smells like rosemary, sage and thyme. He is one of the smartest men I know...and I know myself. so that says something.

As for is a glorious romp through exciting and imaginative sci-fi worlds. Painted exquisitely by the writers massive catalog of nouns and prepositions.

For those unsure as to whether or not you should plunk down the cold hard dollarino's for the literary masterpiece...I say go for it. You won't be disappointed. Well that may not be totally may be saddened by the fact that some of the stories pull you in deep and let you go far too soon, but aside from that you will be pleased teased and maybe even squeezed, but that does cost a bit extra...mainly because Kaolin would have to fly to your area with multiple carry on's filled with all sorts of exiting toys.
