Oversions GM John Barlow today recalled his early days as a writer and film reviewer for the legendary Lankville science fiction and horror magazine Inflamed by Stars and Blood.

“Those were the halcyon days,” said the executive, who was interviewed in his spacious downtown office overlooking a strange field of carefully-placed but purposeless rocks and pebbles.  “I was a great devotee of science fiction until I became driven by my goal of vast wealth at which point all interest in culture and humanity simply drifted away like a puddle in the sun.”

Barlow began sobbing lightly.

“I have no regrets, however,” he stated loudly, slamming his fist on his desk.  “I own the Oversions after all.”

The GM was not part of the recent festivities honoring the famed magazine which published a print version from 1956 to 1988 and is now currently online only.

“I was invited but I tore up the card,” he said.  “I’m not sure why I reacted so violently toward it, frankly.  I was treated very well with ISB.  They were good fellows.”

“LEAVE NOW!” Barlow suddenly exclaimed as the room grew eerily dark and almost preternatural.
