From the Editors

We’re now halfway through 2017, and into summer weather in the Northern Hemisphere. Things are rolling along here as usual, though it’s hard to be inside at a desk on a beautiful day. If you’re reading this on a tablet or phone somewhere outside… lucky you.

For Readers

We hope you enjoyed “Cold Pizza” by Peter Wood on Canada Day, July 1st.

On another note, please remember that if you see an offensive or inappropriate comment, the best thing to do is flag it (click the small grey flag to the right of the comment) — if any three readers flag a comment, it will be hidden until a moderator can look at it and decide whether to delete it, redact and restore it, or restore it untouched. The flagging system helps us identify what’s genuinely problematic for our readers (i.e., if not even three readers choose to flag a comment, maybe it’s a conversation you collectively want to have), and it’s anonymous, so you don’t need to worry about getting involved.

For Writers

This month, we’re testing a new feature/service: emailing each accepted author when their story gets published. This may prove to be unworkable, but it’s something we’re trying.

We still have a bit of a backlog over our 90-day response target, but we’re working every day to get responses for those patient authors who’ve been waiting.

And here are the stories we’ve selected for this month…
