Posts Tagged ‘archives’


It’s been a while since I’ve offered up a status update, so I thought I’d remedy that today.

The December 2007 issue of Niteblade is back online (Yes, you really did read that right). That is two months of the pre-2009 archives back up and three to go. Hopefully I’ll get them up at a faster pace than I did the first two.

The table of contents for the new anthology is almost set. Almost. I hope to post the table of contents here in the next week or so, so keep an eye open. If you’ve submitted to it and not yet heard back from me, hang in there, that means your work is on the (very) short list and I’ll get to you soon. I promise.

I’ve fallen a bit behind on reading submissions. The oldest submission in my fiction inbox is from August 4th and in the poetry inbox is September 7th. I sincerely apologise for my delay in responding and as soon as I firm up the TOC for the anthology I will make a concerted effort to read the submissions. If you submitted before those dates and you haven’t heard back from me, I didn’t get it. Please re-submit.

I think that covers all the updates I have for the moment, though like I say, keep your eyes on this spot for the table of contents for the next anthology.

September 2007 Archives Done

Yay! I just finished adding all the stories and poems from the September 2007 issue into the pre-2009 archives. It’s a lot of work, but there is a perk to this task — I get to re-read all the work 🙂

The September 2007 issue was the very first issue of Niteblade and I have learned so much since then but I’m happy to say that the quality of the work we featured then was as fantastic as it is now.

If you’ve not read the September issue I strongly recommend taking some time out to do so. Some of my favorite stories from issue #1 include Shine On, Whispers and, of course, the cover story, Dark Angel. If you’re more in the mood for poetry be sure and check out Hall of Shadows and Cut at the very least.

Don’t forget we’re giving away an autographed copy of S.G. Browne’s novel Breathers. Every comment left on/in Issue #8 will count as one entry for the draw and every purchase of a .pdf will count as five entries. I’ll be making the draw on July 1st.
