September’s Table of Contents

From the Editors

For Readers:

On behalf of the staff at Every Day Fiction, I am pleased to welcome you to our second year in operation–365 stories later, and the magazine is still going strong! We had no idea one year ago today when we launched our little project that so many of you would embrace it so enthusiastically. You’ve mentioned us in your blogs, in your reviews, and in your forums, and we thank you for it.

In honour of this special occasion, we’d like to announce that EDF is expanding. Due to popular demand, three special volunteers have stepped forward to launch Every Day Poets, a new online magazine that specializes in delivering a new short poem to your inbox every day. Oonah V Joslin will be heading the project as Managing Editor, along with Constance Brewer (Editor & Slush Ninja) and Nicholas Ozment (Editor & Slushimator). They are targeting November 1st for the launch of the magazine, so please show your support and subscribe!

Every month we’ve published an interview with the month’s most read author, and the interviews have been a big hit. To mark our first year in operation, we thought we’d interview the author whose stories have been read the greatest number of times overall throughout the whole year. Following this Table of Contents is an interview with Sarah Hilary, author of the perennial Top Ten story “Lolita’s Lynch Mob“.

Talk has been going on for quite some time in the forums of EDF’s one-year birthday party. It will be held tonight (September 1st, 2008) at Lola’s Bar in Vancouver. If you’re in the Lower Mainland, please drop by and say hello, and if not, drop by our forums and share a few thoughts on the magazine! For details please see this thread.

Finally, EDF would like to thank Tommy B. Smith for his generous donation of $27.77. It’s with the support of our generous readers that EDF is able to continue bringing fine fiction into your inbox.

For Writers:

If you’ve read this far, you’re already aware of the launch of our sister magazine, Every Day Poets. Of course, most of you have probably already gone to the site and subbed three of your best poems, but just in case you’re still waking up, do so now!

And now for some unhappy news. Scott Cosby, our  slush reader, has had to take a leave due to health reasons. Our thoughts are with him, and he’s asked for our prayers. More information can be found in the forums. This, along with our birthday (and the managing editor’s impending wedding), has got us a little backed up. Please bear with us as we search for another slush reader to help fill the gap (and one of us ties the knot!).
