ReaderCon Ahoy!

Monday, July 5th, 2010

I will be at ReaderCon this weekend, the small and very cool literary F/SF con in Boston.

I’ll be promoting Beneath Ceaseless Skies, with some snazzy flyers featuring our new gorgeous cover art and some postcards with the cover of the Best of BCS anthology.

There will be a reading of BCS authors, including Margaret Ronald, Matthew Kressel, Mishell Baker, Erin Hoffman, Tom Crosshill, and more. It’s Friday at 6pm in the VT room. Drop by and hear some great literary adventure fantasy.

So if you see me in the halls (or in the bar! :) ), feel free to say hello!

Online SF, Now Traveling At…

Friday, October 16th, 2009

I just saw the press release for a new online SF magazine called Lightspeed.

It looks top-notch–the editors will be John Joseph Adams and Andrea Kail, the publisher is Prime Books (who publishes Fantasy Magazine), and the artwork on the site looks very cool.

I’m all for online fiction, of course.  And I think that, in this age of declining short fiction readership, ‘zines with a more niche focus may be a stronger lure to readers than ‘zines with a more generalist approach.  I think the focus of my mag Beneath Ceaseless Skies attracts readers interested in traditional or epic fantasy, and I bet Lightspeed‘s focus on SF will attract SF fans.

Best of luck to them!

My Capclave Schedule

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

Capclave has slick links to personal schedules for each program participant. Here’s mine.

At my reading Friday at 9:30, I will read from “Ebb,” my story that was in Space and Time last spring. At the panels on magazines and new media, I will have some interesting takes on those ideas based on my online mag Beneath Ceaseless Skies and how we use podcasts of short stories.

The Sunday panel, on paranormal romance and urban fantasy, I’m not sure I will have a whole lot to contribute. :) So I may be mostly moderating what the other panelists have to say.

If you see me at the con, by all means introduce yourself and say hello.

Fine Praise, Indeed

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

A very complimentary overall review of my online fantasy magazine Beneath Ceaseless Skies in a blog post by fantasy novelist Marie Brennan.

Of course, Ms. Brennan also has an interest in BCS because we’ve published several of her stories (the second of which is due out in Issue #14 in a few days). But I think it’s even higher praise to hear that the magazine is impressing people as readers.

I started BCS because no fantasy magazine was consistently publishing the type of fantasy stories that I love to read–set in a secondary world (invented or historical) and focused on strong and interesting characters.

It sounds like that type of fantasy is also what Ms. Brennan likes to read. So I’m delighted not only that she’s enjoyed specific stories in BCS, but even moreso that she’s enjoying the overall flavor of fantasy that BCS specializes in.

If you do too–if you like fantasy with strong, driven characters that’s set in awe-inspiring worlds–definitely check us out.
