Today we are also officially accepting entries to the Science in My Fiction contest! You can now submit [...]

So very much to mention, I’m going to do bullet points and try to keep everything short! As I posted about last night, Issue 15 has been released! The Any Previous Genre issue came out brilliantly. It’s all free on the site, please enjoy! As I also posted about last night, today is also the [...]

You’ll be glad you kept a shovel on hand

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 [...]

What an exhausting weekend. Fortunately it was a good one this year for us. Not terribly stressful. Worked off a lot of tension and energy playing the new Wii (our 3-year-old son’s pretty good at it. Who knew?). We saw that all of you seem to have been busy over the weekend too. I thought [...]

(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 [...]

It’s 10 minutes to midnight, so this’ll be quick, bullet-points style: Issue 13 is completely done, ready to go. Woo! Going to spend any time I have between now and the end of the month working on the anthology and reading. Lest anyone be misled by my last post, we have not quite reached that [...]

What an awesome day! The LGBTQ issue has been released! The early response has been wonderful! To our utter delight, today has been the best single day of traffic to our site… EVER. Not by a small margin either, and there’s still a couple of hours to go. And people are staying and reading, too! [...]

In a couple days there will be anyway! Sorry about the lack of posts. We’re working hard, really! Yesterday there was a lot of reading. We’ve reached the point where submissions increase at the end of the month, so I sent out a few more to slush readers. We’re still pretty far behind the August [...]

You’ve got a real type of thing going down

Whew! What a weekend! The site was down for about 24 hours. This was due to some unforeseen (and still not completely explained) issues when moving the site to a new server. Our webguru Matt worked his butt off to get us up and running again. Thanks Matt! Let’s see. All editing for the LGBTQ [...]

Stats! Now that we’ve closed submissions on our first year of issues, I went and counted up our Fiction submission totals. I found some very interesting things about our Male/Female submission ratios. These numbers disregard submissions that weren’t ever under consideration – i.e. submissions that were too long/too short, or were withdrawn by the writer [...]
