Short fiction is not dead.

I stand by my comments in the Clarkesworld editorials  from last year and this year.

Rumors of their demise has been greatly exaggerated

Electric Velocipede is very much alive.

Long live EV!

You people really shouldn’t encourage me…

Clarkesworld Submission Stats

Sometimes pictures are better than words:

May was a down month for submissions from women.  I’m not sure why, but it’s something I hope we can turn around.  If we count up all the submissions since September (actually, mid-September), women account for almost exactly one third. Interestingly, that third is responsible for 5 of the 8 stories I’ve accepted.
