November’s Table of Contents

From the Editors

Tomorrow we celebrate the first birthday of our sister site, Every Day Poets. The EDP team is hosting a party on their Facebook page, so we encourage you to drop by and congratulate them on surviving their first year.

For Readers:

We hope you enjoyed our run of Halloween horror, and are perhaps now enjoying some Halloween candy? November brings you our usual variety of genres and styles, including new work by some of your favourites including Alexander Burns and K.C. Shaw, plus some fresh voices such as Grá Linnaea and Wanda Morrow-Clevenger.

For Remembrance Day or Veterans Day on November 11th, we are featuring “Sergeant Smith” by Mark Partin, and for the American Thanksgiving holiday, we are offering you a trio of stories about family running from November 25th to 27th: “How the Human Got His Free Will” by Deven D Atkinson, “Broken Waters” by Bob Jacobs, and “The New Pet” by Finale Doshi.

We also have another podcast for you: “For Cabbages and Ale” by Robert J Santa, read by Adam Kerby. “For Cabbages and Ale” was originally published in EDF on October 23, 2007, and is included in The Best of Every Day Fiction 2008.

For Writers:

We are a few days behind on our responses to submissions, but we’re working to get back on top of the slush pile.

We are also hard at work on our upcoming anthology, set to represent the best of Every Day Fiction from September 1, 2008 to August 31, 2009. All emails to authors have now been sent out, and as soon as we’ve confirmed everyone’s participation we will release the list of stories we’re including — watch the forums for the official announcement!
