I recently added a Discord server to all of the Clarkesworld Magazine Patreon rewards.
Some of you are probably wondering just what that means. Discord is group chat software. It supports both text and voice, but at the moment, I’ve restricted it to just text. After you download the app to your computer or phone and have set up an account, you can link it to your Patreon account and they will automatically add you to our group. (Assuming you’re a Patron.)
The server is still in its infancy, but we have a few “channels” (chat rooms) set up:
- General (all-purpose, if something dominates discussion we’ll make a separate channel for it)
- Rejected Because (I’ll be posting reasons why some stories have been rejected by Clarkesworld here. No story/author-specific details.)
- Recommend a Story (Read something good? Let me know. I also work on anthologies and The Best Science Fiction of the Year, so I’m always looking for new stories to read.)
Always happy to have more people join the discussion!
