That’s right, the moment you’ve all been waiting for has arrived… Unlikely Story #7: The Journal of Unlikely Entomology is here! This time around we have new fiction from Maria Dahvana Headley, Sarah Brooks, Darren O. Godfrey, Alvaro Zinos-Amaro, Helen Anderson, Nghi Vo, Dennis Tafoya, and Mark Rigney. As always, each story is accompanied by a gorgeous illustration.
A few notable tidbits about this issue: This is our first pro-paying issue; it is our largest issue yet, containing eight original stories; Helen Anderson’s story from this issue is her first-ever published story; and Maria Dahvana Headley’s story was originally written as a birthday gift. If all that doesn’t make you want to read the issue, I don’t know what will.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be posting interviews with our authors on the Unlikely Story blog, something we’re trying for the first time. We asked them about their stories, their feelings on bugs, what they’re reading, and the most obscure thing they learned over the course of their academic lives, among other things.
In other unlikely news, we’ve responded to all submissions received for our Cryptography issue. We expect to make our final decisions within the next few weeks, and hope to publish the issue in late January/early February. While we’re putting together that issue, we continue to read submissions for our Unlikely Cartography issue. Got a story about maps or map-making? Take a look at our guidelines, then send it our way!
And that’s all the unlikely news that’s fit to print, so head on over to Unlikely Story and dive into the virtual pages of Unlikely Story 7: The Journal of Unlikely Entomology.
