Dear David Cranmer
You rock. Your WebZine Beat to a Pulp is fantastic. I love the genre mash going on over there and I love the commitment you and Elaine Ash have demonstrated to the pulp-loving community by cranking this stuff out every week. And should we talk about the book? Beat to a Pulp: Round One was tits! Not only full of my favorite writers getting their pulp on, but gorgeous to look at and a pleasure to hold. Really, thanks for that and for y'know, paying the writers. You sir are a class act.
Now, about that piece of mine you're running tomorrow, thanks for sending me a preview and all. And thanks for all that work you did formatting it and making it look spiffy, but could you, y'know forget it? I've changed my mind. I don't want that to run after all. Instead, I've got a brand new - longer - bit I'd like you to format and proof and run in its place.
I know this has been going on for months. I know I told you you could have the one, but really, I'd appreciate it if you'd chalk all that previous work you'd put in to experience and just stay up all night working on this new piece instead.
Pre-shate it. You're the best.
