The Editor Regrets…
Of the articles which follow, some few remain in my files because I did not succeed in getting them published. The majority were never submitted for publication, while some few are in a kind of no-man’s-land – sent to a publisher and never even acknowledged. An occasional one may have been printed without my knowing it.
All in all, writing articles and seeing them in print is a joyous, fulfilling experience. A writer hopes that his joy at seeing himself in print is somehow shared by his readers. With this double purpose in mind, I have put together this collection of pieces written over the years but – as far as I am aware – never appearing in print.
