News from the Robert J. Sawyer Web Site

[Newsletter] Since October 1995, my wife and I have been producing an occasional newsletter with news about me and my work. The newsletter is always a single sheet, printed on both sides, and currently is mailed to 700 or so bookstores, journalist, and people in the publishing industry. Christine Dao, former publicist at Tor Books, described it as "the perfect author's newsletter."

We don't mail copies out to individual readers, but, because of popular demand, we've decided to make electronic versions available for downloading in Adobe Acrobat PDF format.

The newsletter was originally called Soulwave: The Official Robert J. Sawyer Newsletter, but we changed that to Sfwriter.com: News from the Robert J. Sawyer Web Site.

In 1998, Rob won the $500 Grand Prize in Paper Direct's "Show Us Your Stuff" contest for excellence in desktop publishing for this newsletter and related marketing materials. We used to print the newsletter on Domtar Expressions 24-pound "Sicily" paper, which has a lovely one-centimeter-wide red marble border all around the front side (that's why the margins seem a little wide on the first page of some of the older issues if you print these on blank paper).
