What double post? ;)

Hey, Ben! Welcome back!

Ben . . . that was cool!

Remember when I used to post here a lot? Yeah, me neither. But I want to start again. I miss it, really I do. Welcome to Jess, and welcome back to Christy and Dan. Thanks for sticking around, even when it's been so quiet otherwise.

Anyway, and in the meantime, I'd like to post a shameless plug. Because I'm starting a zine!

It will be called Kaleidotrope and will be twice-yearly. I hope to have the first issue out for October 2006, with a submission deadline of June 30. Detailed submission guidelines are available here. Generally I'm looking for fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and black and white art.

I like work that tends toward the speculative and/or fantastic, but I'm open to all genres and styles. Cross-genre or slipstream work would be especially welcome. (I'm not interested in publishing gore, sword and sorcery, or pornography.) Short-shorts, including maybe even work previously written here at 600 seconds, are more than welcome.

Submissions can be sent by e-mail to my attention at Questions and comments, too, if you have any.

Now I just need to get myself writing again and all's good.

I've been a bad, bad writer. I should be punished. Truthfully, what I really need is a good swift kick in my writerly a**, which is difficult since I live alone and haven't yet discovered a way to kick my own. I just keep going around in circles. (sigh.......)

Anyway, good to see that there are still people here. I read some of the recent posts, and this stuff is really excellent. Good job, everyone. And, welcome, Jess!

Maybe (hopefully) I'll wander my way around again soon. Take care, all!

Welcome, Jess! Nice to have you on board! Fred, Joyce is in the process of moving, so I'm going to try and entice her back when she's finished. Seeing as I recruited her and then jumped off the train just as she was getting started . . . but I'm back and will be for the long haul. It's all about those untold benefits, baby!

Hey, Jess. Glad you could join us. I'm going to do what I can to get more people involved here again -- hopefully including myself.

Greetings, all! I'm the new blood, the fresh meat, the... nouvelle... cuisine? Hrm, no. Anyway, I hope you make you all proud to have me as a member of your community of collaborative individualism.
