July’s Table of Contents

editorial by Camille Gooderham Campbell

From the Editors

It’s not often that we introduce a new editor at EDF, but now and again the time comes. Please welcome our newest editor, Jenn Q. Goddu, who has been around EDF as a slush reader and then editorial assistant since January 2013, and has definitely shown that she has the skills and editorial eye for the job.

We’re halfway through the year now, so it’s time for a little reminder: if you’re a regular reader but not already a Patreon supporter, why not? Please visit our Patreon page today and consider supporting our ongoing flow of stories—every dollar counts and goes toward keeping the magazine alive.

For Readers

This (Canadian) editor is a little sad that once again we got zero maple-leafy submissions for Canada Day, but on the other hand, our American readers get not one but three Independence Day stories, starting with “Happy Dependence Day” by Paul A. Freeman on July 3rd and wrapping up with “Great Girls” by Deborah Siegel on July 5th. Right in the middle on July 4th, we’re delighted to present our past editor J.C. Towler‘s return to the writing side of EDF with “Punch Buggy”. Enjoy!

For Writers

August isn’t really a month of major holidays, but we’d love to see some camping and summer vacation stories, and maybe some end-of-summer pieces too. We’re also ready to start seeing Labour Day and back-to-school stories for September — don’t forget to make a note in the Targeted field so they end up in the right place to be considered in time.

But enough of all that; here’s the good stuff you’ve been waiting for…

    J.C. Towler! It’s payback time! Just kidding. Good to see a gamekeeper turned poacher (or vice versa). I look forward to reading. And, yes, my posting is cliche-ridden.
