From the Editors
August is traditionally a slow month in the northern hemisphere. Sunny days and vacation weeks beckon, but here at EDF work has only accelerated. August’s Table of Contents is stacked with regular contributors like Gustavo Bondoni and Deven D Atkinson, along with a mix of authors who bring fresh voices to EDF.
As many of you know, on July 19th, our hosting company shut down many of the services available at EDF, claiming that we were using up too much processor time. We’ve since switched hosting providers and are in the process of redirecting many of our support pages, so that we can bring back services like “Author Pages”, “Recent Forum Posts”, and “Top Stories”. One author’s story was unduly affected. Brian Dolton’s excellent piece “If We Were Briar Roses” was brought down for approximately eight hours. Originally, we were going to republish the piece in August, but after speaking with the author, we decided that it would be more effective to highlight the story here, and include it in our planned “Best of Every Day Fiction” anthology which will contain the best stories of our first year in operation.
That said, please enjoy our August Table of Contents!
Our team is growing! Last month, we added slush reader Scott Cosby to the team, and this month Elise Palmer joins us in the same capacity. Elise has been an avid and active reader her entire life, starting from when her father read her the Lord of the Rings when she was four years old. She enjoys books from all genres, and her favourite authors are Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Christopher Moore, Kathy Reichs, Anne McCaffrey, Shakespeare, Virginia Woolf and J.R.R Tolkien.
The EDF Writing group hosted by K.C. Ball continues to grow. If you would like to check out the action, please contact us.
