Hello Jason Fisher —In the currency of compliments, this is the kind of thing that makes a demanding volunteer position like this worth everything it pays.
My name is Philip Rose and I teach math and computer science at Carroll College here in Helena, Montana. I’ve been a subscriber to Mythlore and Mythprint for … I don’t know how many years, but many. I’m 68 and I can’t remember not being a member of the Mythopoeic Society.
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you how much I enjoyed the latest issue (electronic); Vol. 47 No. 3; Whole No. 332. In both layout and content it is certainly one of the best issues I’ve ever seen. You have some excellent goals and the background to bring them to fruition. My own favorite parts of Mythprint are the book reviews; over the years I’ve found a number of books that I wouldn’t have known of if not for the reviews.
Best wishes for all success in your position as the new editor. You are certainly off to a good start. I look forward to future issues of Mythprint.
Best wishes always,
Philip B. Rose

What makes it all worthwhile
The first issue of Mythprint with my hand at the editorial tiller sailed out to subscribers about a week ago. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Much of this has come from subscribers I know personally (at least online), but a few days ago, I got an email from a Mythprint reader I have never met. It was so kind and so meaningful to me that (with his permission) I wanted to share it with my Lingwë readers.
