One and Counting

Who said numbers were boring? And no, before you ask, I am not an accountant.
I think numbers are wonderful things, especially for TSAT. These are some of my favorites...
- ONE -- TSAT has been around for one full year thanks to the diligent efforts
of its volunteer workforce. While that may not seem like a long
time, it means that we've lasted as long as the average electronic
magazine on the Internet. From now on, we're beating the curve.
- FOUR -- Over this year we've introduced four new artists to our
readers, artists whose material might never have been seen by
people interested in transformation fiction.
- FIVE -- Over this year we've introduced five new authors to our
readers, authors whose first story for an audience interested
in transformation fiction, appeared in TSAT.
- SIX -- TSAT has published six issues, once every two months and we're proud
to note that we have not once missed our publication deadline.
Try it -- "it ain't easy".
- TWENTY-NINE OF THIRTY -- That is, twenty-nine of the thirty stories
we've published this year have never before been seen by the readers
of TSA-Talk, stories that might never have been seen were it not
- TWELVE THOUSAND -- More than 12,000 people have clicked through
to our site since it's inception.
And the really great part about these numbers is that they are
constantly changing, transforming into larger and larger numbers,
which means more and more great stories, art, and who knows what
else is to come, for our readers.
From all of us, to all of you, thanks... and "y'all come back now".
