As I mentioned in a post earlier, Issue 9′s cover art was featured in a post on BoingBoing. It drove a lot of traffic to the site, which was a nice surprise – we didn’t know about the post until it’d been up for about 4 hours. There were some interesting comments in response, some [...]

WorldCon continues tomorrow, but not for us: we’re driving home tomorrow. It was a crazy whirlwind four days, and we had a blast, but we are very ready to be home. Our friends the Wus had a great day today: Brianna Wu, who did the Issue 9 cover Free At Last, sold a gorgeous framed [...]

Praying for the end of time

…or at least, the end of this seemingly neverending span until we leave for WorldCon. I can’t wait! Today saw a pretty good response to Issue 9. I decided to forgo advertising except a few penny ads here and there, to see what kind of response we’d get without it. The results were pretty much [...]

I was up late last night getting the issue out, so I was exhausted and forgot to post. This morning I posted separately about Issue 9′s content. So yesterday… oye. Well we got a bunch of stories at the last minute, like usual… even a couple within the last hour. Overall we eclipsed our previous [...]

You people are really keeping us busy. The submissions keep on coming. We’ve whittled them down to a slim pool… it turned out to be tougher than we expected. I don’t know why I’d be surprised, it makes perfect sense: the more submissions we get, the more impressive a pool to choose from. You know, [...]

Lately there’s been too much of this

One week from today, we hop in our car and start driving. Fortunately it’s not too long a drive to Montreal. More reading, more preparing for WorldCon. We tore up the house again tonight, and I’ve pretty much determined that the graphic novel I wanted to take for Neil Gaiman to sign is either in [...]

We are caught up on reading again. It wasn’t easy, as the past two days have brought a slew of submissions. We’re past our highest previous submissions total by about 12% already! And the end of the month usually brings a small flood of last-minute submissions. We love it, keep them coming! Kay, by the [...]
