Note from Web Ring Founder - Deva Winblood
For those of you who have a chance to talk to Grant Houston of the Silver World would you do me a favor?  I have been trying to get him to let me put the old issues of the Silver World ONLINE.  He has a wealth of information and great reading in the morgue.  Those of you fortunate enough to have spoken with Grant may have noticed a reluctance on his part to embrace technology until he absolutely has too.  This is not always bad.  In past conversations with Grant his main concern with putting issues of the Silver World Online has been a fear that he would lose subscribers as they would be able to read the news online instead.  This is why I only list the headlines.  I have proposed to put back issues online with photos and the full articles and if you have an interest in such a project please let Grant know.  Let him know where you heard about it and maybe he will let me do it.  I have only been asking him about it since about July of 1998.   In addition, I would like to thank those of you that visit this site regularly and are making my efforts worthwhile.  Please continue to spread the word about this site and email us at with any announcements that you would like to make.
