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 [...]

Yesterday the general public got its first glimpse at a sneak peek of the LGBTQ issue’s cover art. Or at least, those who visited Tor.com did. Pablo Defendini and Richard Rhorer delivered on their promise to host an ad for the LGBTQ issue on the Tor.com website for free for a couple of weeks leading [...]

Progress is progressing! The print edition of Issue 12 is done! The 2nd proof arrived yesterday, and Kay and I both went through it with a fine-toothed comb for any little errors. Then I fixed up what we found, and today I converted the file to PDF, uploaded it and submitted for the third time. [...]

Annoyingly, we’ve decided that we need to order a 3rd proof copy of the print edition. There are a few tiny problems that, if it was just one of them, we might leave it (as much as it would irk us), but together we can’t ignore them. Every one is just a little flaw in [...]

Today was very busy, but a lot of it wasn’t CG-related. The biggest thing I did today was get the PDF of issue 12 formatted. It took longer than I’d expected – partly because there was so much more material, but also because there’s a lot more images than our regular issues, all of which [...]

Editing happened! We’re not finished, but progress was made. Hurrah! Today was Mad Communication Day. I must have sent a good 20-25 emails covering various subjects for the magazine. Mostly about Issue 12, although there were a few things about past and future issues as well. Kay also sent quite a few emails as she [...]

I like my rules, baby, etched in stone

We got back some of the edited content with comments, all of which were pretty reasonable. So I was able to take some of it and get it formatted and inserted into the document for the print edition. The new layout looks pretty kickass with actual text in it! I also worked on some more [...]

No post yesterday because Kay and I were up until the wee hours, talking about ways to make CG better for all of you! Issue 11 is as prepped as I can make it at this point; the various templates are even filled in with as much info as we have now, and the internal [...]

No one knew the circumstance but they say that it happened pretty quick

Maybe this is going to be the norm, and I shouldn’t be surprised, but it has. the proof of Issue 10 has already been shipped. This morning I woke to find an email from Createspace, informing me that the cover image as submitted didn’t have enough “bleed” at the edge for printing. I thought that [...]

Just because I’ve been quiet doesn’t mean nothing’s been going on. In fact, we’ve been up until 1am the last few nights working. The results: today I finally heard back from the last writer, and with that last approval I was able to finalize all the content. I’d already gone ahead and finished as much [...]
