Sports Mysteries: Mystery Readers Journal (Volume 25:4)

The latest issue of Mystery Readers Journal: Sports Mysteries (Volume 25:4) is now available. If you're a U.S. subscriber you should have received your issue by now. If you're an international subscriber, I'm still waiting for copies, and I will mail them out myself this weekend. We weren't happy with the overseas airmail service that our printer was using. I'll send an email when they go out. Thanks for supporting Mystery Readers Journal. Special thanks to Kate Derie, Associate Editor.

Looks like another great issue. I am a peripheral sports fan. I don't follow any team, but I read the sports pages and therefore can fake it when I am with someone who knows about sports. I admit to being an Olympic junky however. The only Olympics I ever attended was with my parents in 1960 in Squaw Valley. My father took movies of the hockey and some of the skiing. That was fun to see when Marc and I reviewed the home movies a couple of years ago.
