One of our Gangway #38 authors suggested this letter page to be reopened for self service. So I did. However, almost immediately this resulted in an avalanche of SPAM, which forced me to disable the interactive feature again. I apologise for the inconvenience. Please email directly to individual authors and editors, or use the feedback form to send a letter to me.

Unfortunately SPAM was posted to our letters page over the past few days. At this time we simply deleted all unwanted entries, however, if misuse continues we will have to disable this interactive feature. Thank you for your understanding.

Glad to see you're still going with Gangway – I remember a few exchanges I had with the journal back in 2000 or so, I was editing The Animist at the time and we were doing similar things with multimedia. I look forward to hearing back from you, we didn't quite survive the pace of editing etc. you have my admiration for having continued and thrived.

The Futility of Violence In the aftermath of the bombs exploded in the London Subway, many people are saying that Muslims must give up violence as a means of dealing with their differences with other people. The TRUTH is – all of us must give up violence as a means of dealing with our differences with other people. In the words of Jesus, "He who lives by the sword will perish by the sword." In the words of the Dalai Lama: “Violence, once it starts, is, by its nature, very predictable. Originally you intend limited use of force. Then counter-reaction occurs and it is difficult to stop. Soon, devastation ensues. So, always, I feel it is better to avoid violence.” We did not learn from what our use of violence produced in Vietnam. It is my most sincere prayer that we (all of us) will learn from what our use of violence has produced in Iraq. Robert Gardiner (505) 821-3798 Babedudeg@aol.com

My One Desire It has been said, “No one can serve two masters ... You cannot serve both God and mammon.” My one desire is to be part of an organization that values my devotion to the service of making life better for all people on this planet, more than it values money or anything else. Does such an organization exist on this planet today? Nameste, Robert Gardiner (505) 821-3798 Babedudeg@aol.com

Hi, Gerald,
I've just checked the mag. It's good work, Gerald! I am looking forward to the weekend to sit and read it all.
If you sometimes feel very down, tired of all this (well, yes, unpaid) work, don't forget that there are still some dear lunatics like you, including myself, who do similar things all the time. If nothing else, thinking about that – that you are not the only one – sometimes helps. And, more than anything – a fact that you are building your very own lovely bridge between two of your worlds, and that a lot of us enjoy what you do – it must make you proud!
All the best & Cheers!

Lieber Gerald Ganglbauer,
ich habe gerade bei Deiner Website hineingeschaut und bin ueberwaeltigt. Watzkas Problemloesungsstrategien – ein Hit! Ich hab mich fast angemacht. Und dann so viele tolle Leute in Australien. Dass Du das ueber Bcc verbreitest, hat aber auch einen Nachteil, wird mir jetzt bewusst. Fuer Lob musst du selber sorgen. Das kommt nicht immer gut 'rueber. Eh schon wissen. Auf die Lob-Site schaut keiner hin. Was hast Du vor?
Liebe Gruesse, Hans Fraeulin.

I would love to submit, but for the sake of art, i can barely read the text on the INFO page! Is there anywhere else i can read this without risking both eyesight and sanity? It's a great site nonetheless.
Cheers, David Hi David
Thanks for your feedback. No need to risk both eyesight and sanity ... most browsers of the current generation have a text zoom: Internet Explorer > View > Text Zoom > 200% or Larger; or set your default font size larger: Edit > Preferences > Language/Fonts; Netscape and Opera are similar. Type size is also relative to screen size/resolution. Enjoy.
Thanks Gerald

Hi Gerald
I've just had a look at Gangway #23. Thanks for the fantastic rendering of my poems. I truly appreciate the lay out and great production design of Gangway. Thanks for publishing so much of this verse novel. Bits and pieces of "Baldwin" are going up all over the world.
Kind regards

First impressions
This is my first visit to gangway.net and I am extremely impressed. I have searched for a while to find a literary e-zine and I was very happy to come across yours. I am currently developing a similar outlet for my and my friends writing as part of a university assignment. I may send something your way but I am unpublished, shy and like a wolf protecting it's pups when it comes to my writing. Not that it is that great but it's my whole life in a pile of pages. Well done on the web design- it is more impressive than most design related sites. As an aspiring web developer it is nice to see a user friendly page that is simple, proficient and effective.

Great to see #20 up, and also to see that you have "discovered" the young and quite wonderful poet, Alexandra Ekkelenkamp. She is a favorite of mine and I have watched her poetry develop and grow with much joy over the past few years. Also, always good to see Christina Conrad. Your readers might be interested in the site I edit, PERFORMANCE POETRY, at http://earink.cjb.net All the best in the art of performing poetry. A great interview coming up later this month with Richard Zola (UK), and the discussion board has been attracting more than a fair share of good poetry. Congrats Gerald on #20! Keep em coming!

Dear Gerald,
Just thought I would drop you a line and let you know the latest about two poets who have gotten together thanks to your magazine. Walter Hoelbling (who is an old friend and also my Master's Thesis Advisor but whose poetic vein was hidden from my view until I saw his pieces in Gangway) and I did a poetry reading together at the university last week. It was incredibly well-attended (about 70 people, which I think is a lot for a poetry reading) and also very well received.
We had a great time, did some advertising for Gangway and generally were quite pleased with ourselves!
So, thanks for providing the opportunity, even if indirectly!
Hope everything is going well for you, and best regards, Gabriele

Thanks Gerald for congratulating me on publishing my long awaited poetry book: "Sanguinity" If anyone is interested in my book please contact either me on (02) 9904 7381 or Mr Bryan Gunn from "Kirby Books Distribution" on (02)9698 2377 for enquiries or even to order a book. Sanguinity is an expresive voyage through the shock, grief, and despair of a young woman experiencing a life-threatening illness and coming to terms with an abusive past. This book is not just a story of Catherine's triumph over adversity, but an encouragement to others to express themselves and begin their own healing process. Catherine's poetry has been compared to Sylvia Plath by many experts also.

Hi Gerald, I have been searching round your new revamped website and looking at the new look Gangway and I am very impressed. I showed it to the librarian at the Kings Cross Library and David Hill from the Premier's Department and both commented on its quality. Greetings, Angelika
