Artist's and Writer's Challenge

    ::cue Beach Boys music::
    "Aruba ... Jamaica ... ooh I wanna take ya ... to Bermuda ... Bahama ...
come on pretty mama ..."
    Exotic locales. Balmy tropical nights. The moon shining on the waves.
Heady drinks with fruit and paper umbrellas. Coconut-scented lotion.
Sand and surf. String bikinis.
    This is your mission, should you choose to accept it. The topic for next
issue is to contribute to the Avalon Mists Swimsuit Edition.
    Write a scene set on the beach; draw a pic featuring the poolside fashions
of your favorite characters; whatever strikes your fancy and inspires your
imagination as summer comes to the Northern Hemisphere.
