About the Megapacks
Over the previous couple of years, our “Megapack” sequence of publication anthologies has proved to be certainly one of our most well liked endeavors. (Maybe it is helping that we occasionally provide them as rates to our mailing list!) One query we hold getting requested is, “Who’s the editor?”

This contains John Betancourt, Mary Wickizer Burgess, Sam Cooper, Carla Coupe, Steve Coupe, Bonner Menking, Colin Azariah-Kribbs, Robert Reginald. A. E.
