Sorry not to have responded sooner, but I've been kind of out of things. I had to have a much-loved cat put to sleep. His name was Daniel, and I'm having difficulty saying goodbye.

About the Port Wolfe project. We worked on it on and off for a couple of years, and during that time the participants changed a little -- a few drop-outs, a few drop-ins. But at some time or another, the following all contributed to the project: Peter Torville, Katie Daniel, Toni Kelner, J. R. Redmann, Peter Heck, Bruce Rogers, Tony Fennelly, and moi. It all started when some of us were talking on Genie and wondering why the shared-world concept so popular in SF and fantasy had never been tried in the mystery field. So we decided to do it ourselves.

It's still a good idea, I think. But the project is dead as a doornail.
