April’s Table of Contents

editorial by Camille Gooderham Campbell

From the Editors

We hope you’ve had a lovely celebration of your springtime feast of choice. Happy Easter if you celebrate it, Happy Passover if you celebrate it, and the joy of springtime to all!

Last month, we asked you to support our Kickstarter campaign for an anthology called Raygun Chronicles: Space Opera for a New Age. Thank you very much to everyone who rose to the occasion — we are delighted to announce that the crowdfunding campaign was a success and the book will be launched at OryCon in November. We hope that the opportunities this project may bring us will also open doors for EDF.

For Readers

For April Fools’ Day today, we’re featuring Paul A. Freeman‘s story “April Fool”, and then for Tax Day on April 15th we will be bringing you “April Holiday” by Lori Schafer. We hope you enjoy these stories.

You may also notice rather more fantasy stories than usual this month; for some reason we had a lot of that genre in, with the usual complement of literary fiction, and very little of anything else — only a few horror pieces, and no science fiction at all. We try our best to offer you an evenly balanced blend of genres and styles, but sometimes the supply just doesn’t match the demand. So please enjoy (a somewhat unintentional) Fantasy Month at EDF.

For Writers

We still need stories for Mother’s Day and Victoria Day and Memorial Day (and those need to be submitted by April 26th, please).

Thank you very much to those who responded to our Facebook call for April Fools’ Day stories. We enjoy being able to feature fitting stories for special days of every sort, and it’s great to have a community of authors willing to take up a short-notice challenge to fill a void — we wish we could have chosen all of them to show our appreciation, but of course that’s not possible since we only publish one story on the day.

And now, without further ado, here’s what you’ve been waiting for:
