    I’ve never done this before, but after Readercon, I might have time, for at least a month or so, and I’m certainly interested. I do read fairly quickly, although 5 stories per day sounds like a lot. What’s the word count on that? 😉

      This tends to be a several month commitment, so that’s something to think about. Our upper limit is 8000 words, but there’s no point finishing a story once you’ve decided it won’t fit. (Heck, if it starts with a zombie, you shouldn’t even pass the first page.)

    A chance to read sci-fi and fantasy stories for my favourite magazine? Heck yeah!

    I’m more than happy to read five stories a day, at the very least, and even more on weekends.

    Thanks for the opportunity!
