The cat is out of the bag. With the assistance of nihilistic_kid and oldcharliebrown Clarkesworld Magazine will become a reality in October.
Here are the highlights:
* two stories posted to the site each month
* signed limited chapbook containing both stories after the month is over
* at the end of a year, an unsigned anthology
* paying 10 cents a word
* one slot per month is solicited, the other via open submission (guidelines)
Let me know when it goes live, and I’ll do my best to hang from the rooftops and scream.
Trust me… You’ll know. 🙂
This is cool! Too bad I don’t have a Varis short to submit. I have one in mind, but not written yet. And writing it will have to wait until after book 3 is written. But let me know what this all goes live.
Thanks! Definitely keep us in mind if you write that story. Haven’t even seen book 2 and I’m already looking forward to 3. I’ve been enjoying reading your progress reports.
What a cool idea — great work, guys!
Awesome! And lookie here. I just happen to have a goblin short story in need of a loving home. How convenient 🙂
Woot! First submission! Which, I assume, make that the first rejection as well. Go me!!!
I think I just saw on Nick’s journal that he sent out his first reject for a funny goblin story.
Awesome, Neil! Good luck!
This is great!
Sounds great, Neil! Good luck with it!
Very groovy, Neil. Good luck with everything!
Wow, cool. You’re a nut you, know.

I’m turning 40 this week. This is officially part of my midlife crisis. 🙂
I know what ya mean. 🙂 Mine started 11 years ago at 36–when I started Talebones. vbg!
Good luck! I hadn’t even heard about this–luckily I’ve been going backwards through FRIEND posts a little…
Awesome! I’ll send you some stuff! 🙂
Great news! This is a worthy endeavour and I wish you success! I look forward to collecting some new rejections 🙂
Want a story?…
By all means, submit away. I know Nick is setting records for response times on submissions.
Very cool! Good luck with it.
And of course, what I mean by sheesh is: good luck! (my sheesh comes out of seeing new competition for stories crop up….)
