Running Behind Schedule...

I just wanted to let you all know that the May issue is running a little behind schedule. This is my fault, since I haven't been able to devote the necessary time to editing over the past few weeks. My mother's health has begun to deteriorate, and that's shaken up the family quite a bit; I recently had to travel on the spur of the moment. Needless to say, it's been hard to concentrate on other matters.

Over the next couple of weeks, though, I'm hoping to catch up completely. I know some of you authors have been waiting a long time to hear from us; rest assured that we will be in touch soon.

Thank you for your patience and support!

Closed to Submissions

We are closing to submissions for the time being, as previously announced. I'm not sure when we will reopen, but I'm thinking probably after the Fourth of July weekend. We certainly have enough to keep us busy until then!

Thank you all for your continued support!

Closing to Submissions Friday

Attention authors: We will be closing to submissions this Friday, April 17. We're a bit backlogged right now, and the slush readers need a break. I'm not sure when we will reopen, but I will let you all know. Thanks!

Finnegan's Pig by Libbie Grant Ricks

Finnegan was a short and crabbed kind of feller who always wore a fancy felt hat and a tweed coat because he thought it made him look real sophisticated. He never put his hands into the earth if he could help it, on account of that fancy coat of his. Finnegan always had some excuse why he couldn’t help with the shearin’ of his neighbor’s sheep or the bringin’ in of the fall harvest. “My coat’ll stain,” he’d say, “and where will I get another one in Saskatoon?”

Enjoy!

A Natural History of the Pancake Badger by Matthew Bey

The pancake badger looked nothing at all like a badger. A multitude of segmented legs surrounded a disc-shaped body about the size of a bicycle tire... When it growled, its entire body split open like a clam shell, revealing one of the most powerful jaws ever discovered in a galaxy of fauna. It reminded Mike of a chattering teeth wind-up toy. It also reminded Mike of a rabid bulldog, his garbage disposal, the sound a city bus makes, a bandsaw, and his ex-boss at the Field Museum.

Enjoy!

More #&%($-ing Technical Difficulties

For some reason, our "Contact Us" and reprint query pages are not working right now. Our web hosting service must've done something clever to cause this. Please be patient while we work on a solution. FYI, you can still submit stories -- just not questions, queries, etc.

Sorry about this!
