To Our Wonderful Customers:
Thank you for supporting us throughout the years (and they are adding up!).

We think of our Midmar customers as a huge group of fellow movie fanatics and thereby welcome friends. We hope our books and movies and FANEX have given everyone a pleasant release from the reality of life, especially these last few years.

Thank you for being patient with us whenever we have little issues that slow our orders up, like the hurricane flooding our offices in 2011 and Sue breaking her neck in August 2016. But there is always a good side, insurance covered a lot of the damage to the office and Sue didn't need surgery, although she still has to wear that darn neck
brace in the car. And we hate to say it, but we're slowing down, or maybe after working over 40
years, we're just a little tired, so thanks for understanding when a book is late or your
order takes us a little longer to fill.

We both enjoy talking movies when you place an order and especially love hearing from
longtime customers, some who have been
with Gary since the early Gore Creatures
fanzine days when he was just 13 (1963)!
Although with that age thing happening, we sometimes don't remember as well as we used to.

We hope this joyful season and the new year are filled with happiness and joy for you and yours and wish everyone the happiest, most carefree and merriest of holidays.

Gary and Sue Svehla
