1996-1998 were the wonder years for tension. We didn't know what we were doing, we weren't sure we were doing it correctly, but we had dreams and aspirations that were larger than our talents and which carried us through three years of fun, exploration and learning. We persevered by the excitement of what we were doing and the novelty of the new publishing medium. We hope you enjoy our place between structure and anxiety. over the coming years we'll be reassembling tension magazine into its various related sections. Keep checking for all the best of tension.
