Two Important Items

First: Hopefully this won’t last long, but between an initial backlog and a serious email glitch that has hampered my efforts to track submissions, I am closing the magazine to submissions. I anticipate being reopened by the end of the month. Second, and related: There is now a separate email for queries. Please send all […]

Next Publication Date: May 5, 2009

As a reminder, we publish on the first Tuesday or Thursday of the month. Our May issue will be available on Tuesday, May 5. The lineup is: * Bryan S. Wang, “Descent”, a literary story that doesn’t really make me long for the glory days of my youth. * Isaac Espriu, “Jack Rabbit”, a story […]

Line-up for March

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 […]
