Initially, I intended to use this space for NaNoWriMo ('04). I've since changed my mind. In general, this space will deal with the various things I'm doing as a writer and editor, but will occasionally delve into the personal as well. As if there are blogs that don't.

issue 14 is live!
With great thanks to Robbie Shapard, James Thomas, and all the writers, our special "Flash Fiction Forward" issue of SLQ is now live. Of the 80 authors in FFF, we were fortunate enough to be able to publish 24 in this issue, plus a piece by one of the editors, Robert Shapard. Great flash by CB Anderson, Mark Budman, Stace Budzko, Robert Earle, Utahna Faith, Sherrie Flick, R. L. Futrell, David Galef, Bayard Godsave, Tom Hazuka, Jennifer A. Howard, G. A. Ingersoll, Kit Coyne Irwin, Barbara Jacksha, John McCaffrey, Peter Mehlman, Christopher Merrill, Stacey Richter, Bruce Holland Rogers, Robert Shapard, Ersi Sotiropoulos, J. David Stevens, Melanie Rae Thon, Katharine Weber, and Kathleen Wheaton, with cover art, as always, by the inimitable Marty Ison.

stats for issue 13
Here are the stats for issue thirteen:
|Issue Thirteen (live from 6/15/06-9/14/06)|
6/15-6/30: 29481 page views
7/1-7/31: 51817 page views
8/1-8/31: 42117 page views
9/1-9/14: 29679 page views
Total Issue 13: 153094 page views
Hmmm. Down 17% since our last issue. Not sure what that means? Maybe less people reading during summer break? Or, perhaps more likely, since we were closed for subs, not as many writers were swinging by to see what we publish. Hopefully, this won't become a trend.
