Catchin' Up

Last night I finished off my three reviews for the magazine and sent off a longer one to Rain Taxi. It's a good review; my only worry is that the book came out in November so it might not be recent enough for them. It definitely fits the mold of books they look at, though. We'll see what happens.

I also spent a little time looking around for more horror markets that might like a story of mine. None really jumped out at me for submission, but Penny Dreadful and Corpse Magazine score points on my weird site design scale.

I'll keep looking, and post if I find any that look particularly solid.

Well, I'd like to recommend The Harrow, if you haven't already looked into it. They've got a really nice online submission/publishing system now, and apparently they are starting to pay to the tune of $5 a piece. :)

Oh I'll definitely submit to the Harrow. I like the looks of it. I'm just amazed by the sheer number of really, really bad online horror mags out there. Although I do like the name Penny Dreadful, even if the mag itself was a little silly. Sounds like a lost Roald Dahl character.

Yeah, horror's a funny genre, that's for sure. Oh yeah, and there's No Fixed Genre -- did you try them -- and Strange Horizons is speculative fiction but for some reason I sense that yours is probably that way.

Penny Dreadful is indeed an awesome name.

I like Strange Horizons. A lot. This piece won't fit them, though. A little too straight dark fantasy. To be honest, it's a little hack. But it's been fun to play with.

I don't know No Fixed Genre. I'll have to look it up. Thanks.
