We’ve got a fair number of submissions but we always want more! Saturday is the release of issue 18, the Eastern issue. We’re extremely pleased with how [...]

There’s a wonderful review of Crossed Genres Year One over at Tangent Online! “From lovers whose needs suck away others’ life forces to the foibles of superheroes past their prime, Crossed Genres makes a tasty break from ordinary speculative fiction. This twisted group of stories both inflames and amuses. At ten bucks a pop, it [...]

What a week. Monday was President’s Day, but despite the short work week I feel more exhausted than at the end of a regular week. _________________________________ Over the last few days I’ve been communicating with several people who are testing out various new versions of the magazine. I’m working on making the magazine available in [...]

(NOTE: This post was supposed to go out on Tuesday the 19th. I have no idea why it was saved as a draft instead. Better late than never, I suppose.) Just a few quick things tonight: Several hours worth of packing and about $210 worth of shipping later, all preordered copies of Crossed Genres Year [...]

I’m going to make a concerted effort now to get back to making at least a small post each day. Today the print edition of Issue 15 was finalized submitted and approved, the proof was ordered and shipped. Yup, all in one day. Awesome. I’m very excited to see this one. It’s really a magnificent [...]

Speaking of “negotiating”: Who wants to nominate Crossed Genres for a Hugo award? We’re eligible! Although we know we wouldn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of winning, being nominated would be a dream come true, literally. If you’re eligible to nominate for the Hugos, please consider Crossed Genres! Things are coming along nicely. We [...]

We have almost dug ourselves out from the veritable mountain of submissions to the Any Previous Genre issue. Wow, people – we are just flabbergasted. We surpassed our previous highest submission total by forty-three percent. 43. Point-nine, to be exact. Unbelievable. After passing through our slush reading process, a little less than half of the [...]

The biggest news now: the anthology has been finalized! Everything’s approved and I’ve ordered the proof copy (with extra-speedy shipping). The hope is that we’ll have it by this Saturday; if not, probably Monday. And if it looks half as amazing in print as it did in the final design then I will be very [...]

(I can’t listen to christmas music unless it’s been originally subversive, or subverted from the classic stuff. Dr. Demento saves me during this time of year.) A quick note to start: This is the last month to read or purchase our Dystopian issue! Issue 2, originally published on January 1, 2009, is going away forever [...]
