Fish Ryan & 3rd Bed

If anyone knows anything about the identity of FISH RYAN, please contact me. FISH RYAN is listed as the author of the story ETHNOLOGY in 3rd bed #8. His bio is vague and likely it is a pseudonym. ETHNOLOGY is one of the most perfect stories I've ever read. Perfect for me. There is nothing about this person's name on google, except via 3rd Bed.

I miss 3rd Bed. They were top notch. If there is an heir to their dynasty, perhaps it is Caketrain. I'm not sure if they run the 3rd bed store anymore, though you can still place orders. I need to pick up the issues I am missing. If anyone has issues they don't want please contact me also.

I used to have the last two issues. Gave them to Mike.

Bradley Sands said...

Oh, and I know the associate fiction editor. I think that's his title. Not sure if he worked on that issue. If he did, I can give you his email. His name is Bryson Newhart.

i emailed the old 3rd bed site. they still are selling everything and responding except they are out of issue 4.

i asked him about fish ryan. he said he'd have to pick through his 'mental detritus'. hmm.

BLAKE BUTLER said...

bryson newhart that sounds familiar. was he in bust?

i think i am only missing the first 5 issues or something.

Bradley Sands said...

Yes, he was in Bust.

Google "mental detritus" and the third link down is a blog that belongs to someone named Josh who seems to write roleplaying games.

Bradley Sands said...

Oh wait. I thought "mental detritus" was a clue. I reread the sentence.

I have a headache. Earlier tonight, it was a migraine. Called in sick to work for the first time. They were not happy. Short staffed.

Bradley Sands said...

I meant the third link down was a blog owned by a guy named Ryan, which makes more sense than he being named Josh.

BLAKE BUTLER said...

maybe it IS a clue. fish ryan is sneakily planting himself online via google keyword manipulation. he must be unlocked

I heard FISH RYAN was the love child of Raymond Burr and Tom Clancy.

Kick ass.
