Providing crack* to even more authors

Weird Tales Magazine has become the 6th magazine to adopt the submissions system I originally developed for Clarkesworld. You can find their submission page here. I’m quite happy to have them join the gang, which now consists of Clarkesworld, Fantasy, Electric Velocipede, Asimov’s and Lightspeed. Stay tuned… three more are in the works and there are two others currently kicking the tires.

* I’ve seen the submissions system described as crack for authors. It amuses me. Yeah, I know crack is bad for you, but they don’t really mean it that way… I hope.
