From the (former) Editors:

It’s been a little more than two years since crossedgenres.com went public and we started accepting submissions. We had no idea what we were doing and the learning curve was steep, but somehow, we didn’t screw up enough and now find ourselves here. As of this issue, we’ve published 137 stories from 118 authors; 41 [...]

October 23, 2010

As we’ve previously announced, starting with issue 25 (December 2010) the editorship of Crossed Genres magazine is being turned over to Jaym Gates and Natania Barron. As we’ve developed the transition, Jaym, Natania, Kay and Bart have spoken at great length about the form and direction of Crossed Genres. Based on those conversations, we’re implementing [...]

That’s not the reason that I came to land

The print edition of issue 13 isn’t quite finished. It turned out we were still waiting on an edit from a writer! Oops! Fortunately we have it now. I think we can wrap up the print edition tomorrow, which means we’ll be ordering the proof by Monday; that’s still in plenty of time. *KNOCK WOOD* [...]

there’s some place that he’d rather be

Editing for Issue 13 is done. Whew. Tough one this month – not because of the stories, which were actually quite clean, but because we got sick and fell out of the swing of things. And we had a few other things going on. Next I’ll be putting together the print edition. The cover is [...]

The problem’s plain to see/too much technology

Modern technology is pretty amazing in that it can distract you from itself. You get on the computer to perform 1 task; 15 tasks later you’ve forgotten what the first one was, you only know you haven’t done it… Editing is under way. Kay’s taken care of some of it, and I’ve done a bit [...]

This is the story of how we begin to remember

It’s very hard to struggle back into a rhythm of work after being flung out of it for so long. To anyone who says 5 days isn’t a long time, I say: clearly you have never truly been in this kind of rhythm. But we are clawing our way back to production. We got back [...]

It’s got an evil attitude

Sory for the lack of posting in the past few days. The release of Issue 12, and then me and my whole family getting sick, slowed us down considerably. I think we knew we were all getting sick even back around the 30th, but we beat it back until after our party and the release; [...]

My eyes beheld an eerie sight

Getting anxious for Halloween. Halloween means our Halloween/Issue 12 party, and the day after, Release Day. Oh yeah. We actually have more to do to prepare for the party then we do for the Release! I’ve been doing some little tweaks to the website here and there, but we’re really ready. We’ve been working mostly [...]

Well then, friend, it seems to me you pick and choose

Issue 12 is pretty much complete. Everything’s been double-checked, all the templates have been prepped as far as they can be. I even wrote up the little descriptions for the new items in the store (a quirk of our store’s program is that we can’t create items that are “hidden” until we’re ready to start [...]

‘Cause we seem to understand the urgency

We’re still waiting to hear back from a couple of writers about the edits to their stories. Even though we’re still okay for time *knock wood* I’m getting a bit antsy. Want to put this puppy to bed so I can focus on the other editions. I did finalize a couple more of the stories, [...]
