The End of Some Fantastic (For Real, This Time)

After giving it a lot of thought over the past few weeks, I am removing Some Fantastic from indefinite hiatus and fully shutting down the website at the middle of this month when the payment for January hosting fees is due. As much as it pains me to do this, there's no realistic chance that I will be revamping it anytime in the foreseeable future. I will continue to maintain ownership of the domain name, but I won't be paying anyone to actually host the site anymore.

I'm sad to see that it only lasted 16 issues and that I never did put together the final issue from the material I had collected for a 17th issue, but while it lasted I had all sorts of fun with it and received an immense amount of personal fulfillment and satisfaction. I am not ruling out a return to producing a similar type of publication, but should that happen, I will definitely feel the need to somehow clearly delineate its successor as a completely different entity (even if is something as unimaginative as calling it Some Fantastic 2.0).

Thank you to everyone who supported the 'zine by contributing material and/or downloading the issues over the few short years that it ran. A special thanks to justjayj, without whom the last few issues might never have been produced.
