Editing and layout of the Summer 2003 American Currents is complete, but
publication has been delayed while I iron out the technical kinks with a new
printer. Once this is done, I anticipate a significant improvement in the
print quality of the publication, and a faster printing and mailing
turnaround time.

If you are not a NANFA member, or have recently expired, you can use this
delay to your advantage and get your membership in now. Please go to ...

... for an order form. Send it in within the next week or so, and I
guarantee that you will not miss this issue.

Dues are just $20 a year (U.S.), $29 (Canada & Mexico), and $34 (all other
