Begin transmission . . .
Running weekly from May 2014 to May 2015, The Canister X Transmission was sent via email to readers worldwide.
Serving as a source of inspiration for writers and artists everywhere, its impact was made known by the replies sent to A.P. Fuchs's inbox week-to-week.
The newsletter covered four main topics:
The Creative Thought of the Week, in which Fuchs added his two cents on the ups and downs of being a writer, staying motivated, advice and encouragement, and other topics that were part and parcel of making up stories for a living.
Work Updates, in which readers were informed of works-in-progress and where what stood on the publishing schedule.
Fanboy News, in which was relayed something of interest from the world of pop culture.
Marketing/Publishing Tip of the Week, in which ideas and strategies were conveyed to further one's reach with their books and comics, and were also advised of some of the traps to avoid.
Exclusive to this collection is a special Issue Zero newsletter unavailable anywhere else.

About the Author
A.P. Fuchs writes and publishes fulltime from Winnipeg, MB, and is most well known for his superhero series, The Axiom-man™ Saga. He spends most of his time writing about zombies and publishing books about them. His shoot ‘em zombie novel, Blood of the Dead, is about just that and, obviously, goes without saying but he’s saying it anyway.

His Twitter address is http://www.twitter.com/ap_fuchs, so be sure to follow as it’s always fun. Fuchs also recently celebrated his love of writing and independent publishing by launching a bookazine series called Bumper Sticker Shine, the first volume of which, Dry Ice Dreams, is now available. In it he shares insights into the independent publishing industry, how to go about doing it, short stories from his archives as well as poetry, comics, photos and more. Fuchs always wanted to have his own magazine, one where he could do whatever he wanted, however he wanted, and now he has one. Check it out. It’s loads of fun. He’s also the owner and sole-proprietor of Coscom Entertainment, a publishing firm specializing in superhero and monster fiction. (www.coscomentertainment.com) Oh . . . as a few side things, he digs cooking, watching TV, making compost and following the exploits of Batgirl, Red Robin and Batman and Robin on a monthly basis. He also has a few secrets of earth-shattering proportions, but he’s not telling them now nor ever, and plans on taking them to his grave. A.P.
