Some quick Clarkesworld Updates

Congratulations to Rebecca Ore. Her story “Acid and Stoned Reindeer” from Clarkesworld #14 has been published in Wilde Stories 2008: The Best of the Year’s Gay Speculative Fiction, edited by Steve Berman,

Editor search update: I had hoped to settle this last weekend at Readercon, but instead we ended up with more interested candidates and some interesting viewpoints that required serious consideration.

After burning through several printers and countless other problems, the Clarkesworld chapbooks are back on track and moving forward. Our new printer has done a great job and is currently talking to me about things we can do better with the next batch. (I think they are seriously enjoying working on these.) Anyhow, I now have in my hands the signed limited edition chapbooks for issues #1 and #3. If you preordered copies, expect to hear from me this weekend.

I’m embarrassingly behind on these chapbooks and there will be a huge push to play catch-up over the next several months. Next week, the printer and I will finish details on a large batch of cover/signing sheets, which should be returned to me early August and shipped out to authors. On return, signed sheets will go right off to the printer, so it’s entirely likely they’ll be issued out of sequence for a while.

    Response window for submissions

    Seeing that your search for an editor continues should I expect the reading process to take longer than the usual 50 days? I submitted a story May 30 that I haven’t gotten a response on yet.

    Sorry to broach the subject in open forum. The auto-response on the submissions address wouldn’t let me get a word in edgewise.
