Bewildering Stories News
Next week brings the Third Quarterly Review, the editors’ choices from issues 202-214. We’ll resume regular publication with issue 215 on October 2nd. Meanwhile, Contest 3 and the Tenth Man Contest will continue without interruption.
Scheduling: The fall semester begins, and Ye Copy Editor’s e-mail responses will slow down dramatically. He’ll also be out of town with a slow Net connection between October 1st and 10th. In the fourth quarter, beginning with issue 215, time pressure and issue lengths will also require some rescheduling. We beg our contributors’ patience.
Who is this esteemed contributor
Flash and Fibonacci.
Readers’ reactions are always welcome.
