Computer Rebuild = Delayed Publication

My computer had to be completely reinstalled. I have all of my data, but as a result of the rebuild I'm going to take a few extra days to publish the magazine for September.

Sluggish Responses

I'm never the fastest guy in the world, but I'm a little worse than usual right now. We just had a baby last Tuesday, and the last few weeks have been slower than usual. I beg your patience.

Line-up for March

It occurs to me that I haven't announced our line-up yet, so here it is. It's a music issue:

"Addiction" by Ariella Adler, a fantasy -- though more about the aftereffects of the fantastic than the fantastic itself. The music in this case is that of the sidhe.

"Gustav's Mars" by Emily Leverett, a science fiction story. It's about music and martians, but really about something more mundane when all's said and done. And yes, the narrator starts off dead.

"Trumpet Volunteer" by Oscar Windsor-Smith, a literary story? A fantasy? I guess it depends on your perspective. It's an odd one for me, but I like it and I hope you will, too.

We publish on the first Tuesday or Thursday of the month, so I'll see you sometime on March 3rd!

Going Live Tomorrow

Line-up for January

January's line-up includes three stories:

* Mike Resnick's "The Fallen Angel"
* Stefanie Freele's "The Flood of '09"
* Robin Gillespie's "As Their Eyes Touched God"
* A Classic Flash by Anton Chekhov, "An Enigmatic Nature"

Mike's piece is a reprint, but (a) it's an out-of-print almost-20-year-old story, (b) it's a really good story, and (c) Mike is the winningest SF author ever, so I'll break my usual "no reprints" rule for this one. Interestingly, this isn't a science fiction story.

Stefanie's story falls exactly one year after her first story with us, "James Brown is Alive and Doing Laundry in South Lake Tahoe". We nominated that one for a Pushcart Prize.

Robin's bio refers to graphic novel work, but not short story publications, so this might just be her first one. When she emails me her bio, I'll know more. :)

Bruce Holland Rogers will be with us as well, of course -- even though he's traveling to Egypt. Of course we wish him safe travels.

Happy New Year!

Technical Issues

I've had some weird technical issues for the past few days, but I hope we're over the worst of them.

One thing that has taken a back seat is the creation of PDFs. If you like the PDF versions, check back on the blog every once in a while and I'll announce when they're up.

Another problem has been the forum: my connectivity has been intermittent enough that I haven't filled out all of the story topics or created the polls. Hopefully I'll have that fixed shortly, too. Either way, you should still be able to use them.

Meanwhile, the stories are there, along with a great interview with Eric Garcia. Check it out.
