Census Results

THIS issue of Plokta will be mailed to 289 people. More or less. Not counting all you web readers out there, sometime in mid-2003 (on current schedule). We've now collated the returns from the 2001 Plokta census. Thanks to the 276 of you who returned your forms on time. We've asked Gail Courtney to handle the severe penalties for the other 13, so you should be hearing from her any day now. Initial results appear below. Why are you receiving Plokta? Well, 5 of you asked for it, and the rest get it whether they want it or not. We are trading for 83 fanzines, a dozen of which are e-zines but the rest of which come on nice solid paper. One of these appears to be the copy of Izzard 9 which Steve picked up off the fanzine table at Paragon.
