Thanks to everyone for the outpouring of support, commiseration, and congratulations on my recent masthead change. Y'all are great, and you make all the hard work worthwhile.

I'm delighted to be able to announce the forthcoming relaunch of the short fiction review publication, The Fix.

From TTA Press, the publisher of Interzone, Black Static, and Crimewave, The Fix online, like its print incarnation, will provide in-depth reviews of short fiction from the full spectrum of magazines, webzines, anthologies, and single-author collections in the industry. We’ll also bring you interviews, a range of features and columns--including the continuation of James Van Pelt's column on writing, The Day Job--and insightful articles and observations.

Publisher: Andy Cox
Managing Editor: Eugie Foster
Launch Date: Oct. 15, 2007

If folks could spread the word, it'd be greatly appreciated.

Doing my own part to spread the word:
Apex Digest is conducting a Halloween Grab-Bag Raffle this month. Raffle tickets are only $1, and a percentage of proceeds will go to benefit the National Center for Family Literacy. Check out the amazing collection of goodies and open up your wallets, yo!


Writing Stuff

- Payment from Helix for "The Center of the Universe."

- "Close to Death" in the premiere issue of Shiny. Shiny is a new YA electronic short story magazine put out by the fabu folks of Twelfth Planet Press. In addition to my humble offering, Shiny #1 also has stories in it by Sue Isle and Trent Jamieson.
- My October Writing for Young Readers column, "An Interview with Author Dallas Woodburn."

New Words:
- 3700 words on new short story, "White Rabbit" (working title). Believe it or not, I actually started a new short story. I had to put in on hold so I could work on The Fix, but I hope to get back to it after we launch.

I'm feeling:

Regarding The Fix, I mentioned something to the ROF crew a little while back, but you may want to drop them an additional email. Drop me an email if you need contact information.

Congratulations on your new publication, Eugie - how exciting! I love reviews - love reading them and love writing them - even though an author is currently most vexed with me because of me review of her (snort) novel in the current issue of the site Erotica Revealed.
