The May issue of Clarkesworld Magazine is now available online!
I made a lot of progress on behind-the-scenes stuff for Wyrm Publishing this past week. Hopefully I’ll be able to share some of that news with you shortly. One of the things I have to do now is start finding artists and cover designers. If you or someone you know is interested in some freelance work, please contact wyrmpublishing at gmail.com.
|With all the problems in March, the art for the magazine was the last thing on my mind. I had an artist in mind for April, but I never heard back from him. Perhaps some other time. Fortunately, I have a nice list of art that I wanted for future issues, so I just moved one up. April’s art is by Natalie Shau, who has to her credits the cover of Fantasy Magazine #4.|
Ok, I’m a B5 junky. I watched each episode as they aired and have the complete series (and the movies) on DVD. Despite the last couple of movies, I look forward to each new project. This morning a friend sent me a link to some news about BABYLON 5: THE LOST TALES, a straight to DVD movie coming this July. Can’t wait. Here’s the link:
Well, it appears the rumors were true. We’re losing another genre publisher. Here’s the official statement from Meisha Merlin:
I am sorry to say that due to major distribution problems Meisha Merlin Publishing, Inc. will be closing their doors in May 2007. Both Kevin and I along with the entire staff here at Meisha Merlin want to thank all our fans, customers, authors, & artist for your support over the past eleven years. We are sorry to have to do this, but events beyond our control have forced us to make this decision.
ATTN: For those of you who have purchased The Virginia Edition. The Robert A. & Virginia Heinlein Prize Trust has worked out an agreement to continue publishing The Virginia Edition. You can expect a letter from them within the very near future & volume seven will be arriving to you in late May or early June.
I wish them all the best of luck and hope that all their authors find new homes for their projects quickly. Nice to hear that the Virginia Edition customers will not have orphaned collections.
If the rumor mill is to be believed, Meisha Merlin is closing down. It’s coming from enough sources now that it makes me think it might be true. Can anyone confirm this?
