April’s Table of Contents

From the Editors

Hello, and welcome to the April issue of Every Day Fiction. If you’ve been to the site recently, you might have noticed the timer counting down to today. Speculation was rampant about its purpose, but your friendly neighbourhood editors kept mum. Some of you predicted the announcement of a major restructuring. Others thought it might signify the launch of a new feature on the site. Well, author Deven D Atkinson guessed right when he said that it was an April Fool’s joke. The gag’s on us! Tell us, did we have you fooled?

Now that the silliness is dealt with, we can get back to the business of running one of the web’s fastest growing fiction ‘zines. It’s been an exciting month at Every Day Fiction. We were chosen as one of the Things Worth Checking Out on the Web, by the Wall Street Journal. Also, Neil Clarke from Clarkesworld Magazine, one of the most highly respected  genre ‘zines  on the web, weighed in in our forums with his thoughts about how a magazine’s pay rates affect story quality. I also have it on reliable authority that EDF was spotted at NorWesCon. Did you attend? Post about your experiences in our forums.

As word spreads of our success, more and more writers are choosing to submit their best work to us, and our April calendar is a stunning showcase of their talent. We have stories from favourites Kevin Shamel and Michael Ehart, as well as work from newcomers Travis King and Sarah Black.
