The origins of the newsletter Ferment , of which Ferment Magazine.Org is the continuation, may be traced to a Greek restaurant in Boulder, Colorado in 1983. The restaurant's owners may have been upset by the fact that I was sitting there for two hours over a Gyros sandwich going through possible names for the new publication.
Ferment ceased publication in January, 2005. Its creative energy has been transferred to this website.The newsletter may be rehabilitated at some future date.
