Tribute to Niteblade

smalllogoIn the face of Niteblade’s impending closure I invited our contributors to write blog posts to celebrate. Previously John Bruni took me up on the offer, and Cat Jenkins made a post on her blog. Now it’s Pete Aldin‘s turn… with a little help from, uh, Michael Bolton?


Tribute to Niteblade, as sung by Michael Bolton…

I could hardly believe it
When I heard the news today
I had to come and get it from your blog
They said you were leavin’
Someone’s taking you away
No more fae or zombie spores or demon dogs
So tell me all about it, tell me ’bout the
last editions
Then tell me one thing more before I go

Tell me how am I supposed to live without you
Now that I’ve been readin’ you so long
What am I supposed to read on train trips
Where am I supposed to catch such artwork
When pdf ezine Niteblade is gone

(Valè, Niteblade!!)

Issue #23 is looking fabulous! I’m sure you’ll agree 🙂

As mentioned before in our Miscellanea update, this year rather than offering our writers the option of donating their payment to Duotrope we gave them the option of payment via Paypal or a donation to Save the Chimps. So far we have $35 worth of donations heading toward the chimps. Once that number reaches $75 I will match it and Niteblade will adopt a chimp.

Niteblade Library Winner

The winner of a Niteblade library is Pete Aldin for the comment he left on John Clewarth’s blog post. Congratulations Pete, and thank you to everyone who participated in or visited our blog train 🙂

I’ll be in touch Pete.

Choo Choo!

Hop aboard the blog train! 🙂

Niteblade published our first issue in September 2007 and we are now creeping toward Issue #21. That will mark our fifth anniversary. Five years, can you believe it? That’s like, a lifetime in internet time, right?

To celebrate we decided to host a small blog train. It starts right here with this post, then tomorrow it will move on to its first stop. Over the rest of the month the train will visit 23 blog entries that all have something to do with Niteblade. C’mon, it’s going to be quite a trip!
