Year-End Wrap-Up 2013: Editing

Ah, December, the month when editors and authors’ minds turn to year-end wrap-ups of things they’ve accomplished over the year. Being both an author and an editor, and a reader to boot, I’ll be doing three year-end wrap-up posts, to cover things I edited, things I wrote, and things I read. To kick things off, I’ll start with editing.

Unlikely Story published three full-length issues this year, a first for us. With the exception of one reprint, everything we published this year is original and thus eligible in the short story category for all the standard awards. Of course, I’m biased, but I’m incredibly proud of these stories, and if you haven’t read them already, I hope you’ll take the time to catch up on what you’ve missed.
