March Issues


Despite battling a cold most of last week, I’ll have the March issues of Clarkesworld and Forever out into the world today.  Amazon, Patreon, Weightless, Apple, Google, and B&N subscribers should be getting their copies first. Just want to thanks those folks for their support. It makes a world of difference around here.

Clarkesworld has new stories by Robert Reed, Naomi Kritzer, Xia Jia, J.B. Park, and Octavia Cade, with reprints by Ian R. MacLeod and Alexander Jablokov.

Forever has reprints by Ian McDonald, T.R. Napper, and Ken Liu.

New Mailing List

I’ve launched a mailing list for people who want to keep up with information regarding Clarkesworld, Forever, and other short fiction projects I’m involved in. At present, the volume should only be 1-2 messages per month.

If you sign up before midnight on the 20th, you’ll be in the running for a free StoryBundle gift code for the VanderMeer Mix Tape bundle they are currently selling.
