“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. […]
Starting in September (our next issue), we’ll be shifting our publication schedule to the first Tuesday of the month. Thus, our next issue will launch on 9/2. We have three great new stories (“Beyond The Pale” takes us to a bar and a question; “Just One Thing” is an insight into a Mexican family and […]
I particularly liked this blog post about Elizabeth Creith’s “Stone the Crows“. It’s not earth-shattering, but it’s real.
Norm Sherman at Drabblecast has released his podcast of Apologies All Around by Jeff Soesbe, which was originally published in our February issue.

Many thanks as always to Sam Tomaino for his ever-so-brief reviews of our ever-so-brief stories over at SFRevu. The story he made most note of, interestingly enough, is the oldest: Ambrose Bierce’s “John Mortonson’s Funeral”. While you’re at it, some of you may be interested in the interview with Jay Lake and the review of […]
Cris of hat-moononline.com is a friend of R.W. Ware’s, and posted a picture that he did of Cris’s crew. It’s a fun Webcomic, too — check it out. David Tallerman, who gave us this month’s “Strive to be Happy” and March’s “The Desert Cold”, is in Hub #57 with a story called “Exodus”. Jeff Soesbe, […]
Special thanks to short story reviewer Sam Tomaino (and, of course, editor Gayle Surrette) for a brief review of our brief stories from last month. The problem with reviewing such short stories is that you can’t say too much without giving the whole thing away, and the problem with thanking people for such short reviews […]
