Re: the article (Regarding “How I Became an SF Geek,” by Gordon Howe, included in issue 5.)
Neo-opsis #23 was mailed to me by one of the contributors. This is the first issue I’ve read, having not heard of this little magazine from Canada. I’m glad it was sent to me, it is filled with well-told tales.”

Great articles, very clever and well written.
Great Mag. One of the best in the world. I know, I get them all. Keep up the great work.

other day when I was at work (I work in a call center) one of my co-workers
complained that he had nothing to read between calls. I immediately
followed my standard procedure in such a situation. I pulled a copy of
Neo-opsis out of my backpack (I always have at least
one copy on me to hand out to coworkers in need of something to read) and he
said, "Oh good," and proceeded to devour the issue.
-- Dave Robinson
recently received the copy you sent of Neo-opsis and
I was quite pleased. The stories were strikingly good, lots better than I'd
expected for the first issue of a semi-pro zine.

heartily urge you to get your hands on a copy and support such a wonderful
publication. Why? Because Neo-opsis
has worked hard to be an accessible venue for new writers, and they love

sense of humour, evident in both of his columns, is
also conspicuously present in his pick for the issue's first story, "On The Road With Fiamong's Rule"
by Sherry D. Ramsey. If I had to put a label to that sense of humour, I'd call it mainstream geek: two parts Jerry Lewis,
one part Richard Feynman, a pinch of Firesign Theater
and a twist of aggressive oddity.

I've been reading your magazine and
commend you on its classy look and entertaining, thought provoking content.

I believe your input to the local Sci-Fi culture will prove invaluable. I am looking forward to the next edition! Not only for the short stories, but for the reviews and editorial commentaries as well.
I just received your first Issue a few days ago. I am impressed. An excellent little magazine with few advertisements, some laughs and some good stories as well.
-- Chris Barna
Wow! Nice work on the magazine guys! A very impressive
start to your publishing empire!
-- Robert Aitken
do I think of the stories themselves? They're all good, deserving of
publication, and many contained ideas that were original and thought provoking,
the magazine well worth the cover price.

say, I'm impressed. The stories were all top notch. And the packaging looks

Okay, you guys - you got me interested in science
fiction. I received your magazine about two days ago in the mail and told
my friends who read science fiction all about it (I was going to bring it in to
work for them to borrow). Anyway, I was looking at the magazine, and looking at
it, and looking at it, and thinking how good Steph has got at art and that the
illustrations were great. Finally, I picked it up and started reading
Karl's editorial, which was so interesting I didn't want to stop. Now
someone at work has it and I can't wait to get it back. You guys are truly
inspiring and you are also motivating me to do more work like this. It's really
