- Death of a Clan-Sib.
I am truly sorry to announce that one of our clan sibs has
recently passed away. Dannell Lites resided in padded cell
#9. She was committed on August 17, 1998 and was one of the
first patients at the Asylum to join before we even had a
web site. She died due to natural causes on September 16,
2002. I will personally miss Dannell and all she brought with
her to the fandoms she was a part of. If anyone wants any
additional information on her death, please email me privately.

Reposted from the pwlist:
"Hi, everyone and please forgive the crosspost. Feel free
to forward this information to anyone you think might be interested.
"For those of you wanting Leah's Highlander cartoon calendars
or the Peter Wingfield photo calendars for Christmas gifts,
don't let the time slip away from you! I will need orders
by December 5th. The calendars will be available from Mysti
Frank at several upcoming conventions, including Eclecticon
but in very limited quantities. If you've ordered recently,
I've finally gotten all of the orders printed after our trips
away to Dragoncon and Gatecon. They should all be in the mail
in the next few days, but Leah is having surgery Monday so
my schedule is probably still going to be a little screwed
"I'm sitting on some Highlander cartoons Leah drew a while
back that just need coloring in. I'm hoping to be able to
post them to the site soon.
"In other news:
"I've just posted Leah's latest Stargate cartoon. This is
the one mentioned in my Gatecon reports, for those of you
who have read them (and if you haven't, they can be found
at: http://photos.ashtonpress.net/gatecon2002.htm), that was
sort of written partly by 'committee' at the convention. It's
called Oops! or 'Daniel Unascended.' Leah's done a sketch
for another new cartoon, but she's having surgery today, so
I'm not certain how long it will be before we get another
finished one. I quite like the little Ba birds on this latest
"I've also updated the calendars website as this is the
'mystery' cartoon that was listed there for the month of May.
"Time is also running out to get your order in for the new
Jack/Daniel zine, Pretense #4 if you want your name in the
raffle drawing for the 'Danny' Bear. The deadline is October
15th. Of course, you can continue to order the fanzine after
that, but you'll have missed out on the raffle. This zine
*may* be available from Mysti at Eclecticon, but that is entirely
dependent upon the printer having copies back to me in time
to ship. http://fanzines.ashtonpress.net/pretense.htm
"Because Pretense #4 is running a month late from the original
printing schedule, I've pushed the deadline for submissions
for Redemption #2 back a little bit. The zine is two-thirds
full, however, so if you have a gen story in the works, please
consider submitting it to us! All of our Stargate zines can
be found at: http://fanzines.ashtonpress.net/stargate.htm
"I get a lot of questions about upcoming zines and their
availability. Unfortunately, I can't really answer these questions.
When there is something new to announce, I announce it, both
on the website and here. If I haven't made an announcement,
it's because there is *nothing new to report*. Trust me, I
want you to know when there are website updates, new photos,
new cartoons, new zines, new stories...I only have two hands,
