Coming Soon: 2020 Season Finale

We know we aren't alone in thinking that the latest season of Real Life has gone downhill. Is there a plot twist that hasn't been crammed in? It was bad enough to drop the pandemic storyline into the middle of the election year storyline, but apparently that wasn't enough, so now we have a last minute Supreme Court vacancy. Given all that, we shouldn't be surprised that of course the President and a number of Senators have contracted the disease! And don't even get us started on that west coast wildfires subplot.

To be honest, it's all been distracting us just a little from this whole publishing business. We're still reading through the July submissions. So far, we've rejected 144 stories out of the 277 received, and about 32 more are somewhere along in the process of being read and rated. We'll need to pick up the pace if we want to finish before the end of this month.

We've also been working on the 2018-2019 anthology. The interior layout is finished (finally!), and we're working on back cover copy. Then we'll be ready for the full wraparound cover design, since as of right now we only have the front cover image needed for ebooks.

At the end of October, we'll be attending this year's virtual World Fantasy Convention. We have no idea how that will work out, but if you're a member, keep an eye out for us, and look for your free copy of the soon-to-be-released anthology in your virtual bookbag!

Our next story will be out on October 26th. Come back then to read R. Keelan's 14th-century historical fantasy "The Original Sin of William Blackhand."

On November 23rd, we'll have slipstream fable "Omnipotent Marble," by Patrick Doerksen, which may well be the strangest story we're publishing in 2020. We'll leave it for you to decide whether it's stranger than 2020.

We would be remiss if we failed to remind you of the opportunity to support us on Patreon! All the Patreon funding we currently receive goes toward paying our authors and artists, so if you like what we're publishing, please consider signing up to be a Patron.
