We discussed cover art and the upcoming movie column and an interview column. Everything's coming along nicely. Please check it out November 30 2011.
What's left to do? We have to edit the stories and columns and input the content into our content management system. And, of course, get the final go-ahead from authors.
We also need to start working on slush for our next issue.
As an aside, for any writers out there, we didn't have a lot of straight fantasy in submissions this time. We had some horror/fantasy, but no epic or high fantasy and not much urban fantasy. Recall epic/high fantasy is fantasy set in a so-called secondary (imaginary!) world. In contrast, urban fantasy tends to be set in the primary or real world with some magical or other paranormal elements thrown in. Some people call this type of primary world fantasy "low fantasy."
Anyway, we do like to have a variety of speculative fiction so consider sending us some fantasy for our next issue. :) Thanks!
