Bewildering Stories News
Thanks to the readers who have expressed sympathy and support for Bewildering Stories in the week when our server “Hardy” went into meltdown, possibly as prey to denizens of the deep. We’re now back with “Laurel” and are looking for a good home. And a special thanks to Deena Fisher, at Drollerie Press, for her kind and collegial assistance.
Publication dates: Issue 276 was extended a week on account of the connection troubles, but it also got a little extra headline time on the home page. Issue 277 thus appears a day early, at about midnight (GMT -5) Saturday-Sunday 9-10 February. Issue 278 is scheduled to appear at the normal time, at the witching hour on Monday 18 February.
New audio: Ian Donnell Arbuckle reads “China.”
