Redactor's note: something weird


During a routine scan of "mbrane sf" on Google, I found this peculiarly-worded post about M-Brane SF #2. It seemed familiar and yet unlike anything I had read before. Here is the text:

"The 2d issue of M-BRANE SF has merely hit the Net with a March edition to expire for. It Holds a strong-growing locale with a positive hereafter before of it. Some nice authors hold already submitted thereto, like Wrick Novy and Cat Rambo. I hold a narration in Issue # 2, and not merely is the mag well-formatted and really low-cost for this economy, but I believe it is available in a few formats. I urge seeking it out. The PDF is justly $12.00 for a whole twelvemonth! For twelve issues, how can you vanquish that cost? Christopher Fletcher gives his personal rundowns, excessively, on who Holds who and what Holds what affecting the genre. Not simply Hard Science Fiction. Love the retro 60 's feel! Featuring Work by: David McGillveray, Michael Griffiths, Lawrence Dagstine, Tim Mulcahy, Abby Merc ' Rustard, Laurentius Barker, Jannett Grady, James Hartley, and Jeffrey Sims. Redacted by Christopher Fletcher."

After a minute of staring at this in confusion, I realized that it was a re-post of something from Lawrence Dagstine's site though strangely altered (click here to read the original). So...what's all this then? Was it maybe translated into another language and then rather clunkily translated back into English, perhaps by software? One thing I know is that I am now tempted to no longer call myself the "editor" of M-Brane but rather its "redactor!" The post is correct in one major point: it's a great deal at justly $12 for a whole twelvemonth. Really, how can you vanquish that cost?
