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. Thanks,Jake
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 […]
I feel a little bit like Steve Martin in The Jerk — you know, that scene where he first sees his name in the phone book? — because we received our International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) from the Library of Congress. (The Library administers the program in the US, but it is, as the name […]
We go live on the first Tuesday or Thursday of every month, so you’ll see stories updated sometime tomorrow, February 3, 2009. New stories by Jay Lake, Robert Borski, and Tony Rogers, along with Bruce Holland Rogers’s column and a classic from Punch.
I just realized that I had the Podcast RSS pointing to the development machine instead of the live machine. Sorry about that. “What the Moon Brings” by H.P. Lovecraft and “James Brown [etc.]” by Stefanie Freele are both now live and working.

This is cross-posted from News and Headlines, since it’s both news (which goes on News and Headlines) and site-specific (which goes here). Congratulations to Bruce Holland Rogers for winning the First Annual Micro Award with his story, “Reconstruction Work“! We published this story in our very first issue, barely making the Micro Award deadline. It […]
It’s their “z”, not mine. 🙂 At any rate, they have some nice things to say about Dani Girl.
“Ray the Vampire” by Mercedes M. Yardley will go live on Halloween. It’s fun, and if you want to see what it’s about (and get a look at a really cool text technology), check out this Wordle I made with its text. Happy Halloween!
While searching for some local writing gigs on Craigslist, I came across this interesting listing. A Chicago-based production company is seeking Flash Fiction stories for a film adaptation. It’s not a paying gig from what the listing says, but you’d receive sole story credit and a copy of the film if your work is selected. […]
