I first heard the terrible secret of space and was working at a really ridiculous direct mail company in South Florida.
I had just finished reading Dahlgren (do not reccomend) , and was in the middle of the 4th Harry Potter book (the latest in print that far) and was editing and helping to write a game rules book that has since had 2 editions and is now out of print. (As far as I know)
So many broken images and links from that time. Thank goodness for archive.org.
Also reminded of the old lj coloring book project, and that florida mayor that banned satan. ( https://web.archive.org/web/20011203010435/http://www.sptimes.com/News/112901/Citrus/Mayor_banishes_Satan_.shtml )
