I’m delighted to announce that the ‘hello, world’ mini issue of the Journal of Unlikely Entomology is now live! This flash issue celebrates the 40th anniversary of the ‘hello, world’ computer program, and, of course, bugs. We challenged authors to send us stories featuring something new coming into the world and changing everything, and they did not disappoint. The issue features tales by Luna Lindsey, Brent Knowles, and Karen Heuler, accompanied by gorgeous artwork from Linda Saboe. You can find the issue here. Head on over, and give it a read. You won’t be sorry. I promise!
And speaking of the Journal of Unlikely Entomology, the deadline for submissions for Issue 4 is fast approaching. If you have a story you’d like considered for the November 2012 issue, send it our way by September 1st! After September 1st, your story will automatically be considered for Issue 5. Our full guidelines are available here. We’re also currently reading for our special one-off architecture issue. The guidelines for that one can be found here, and we’ll remain open to subs until it’s full. We’re always looking for art, too, so if you are an artist, or know one, check out our art submission guidelines on the subs page. Questions? Leave a comment, or drop me an email.
Happy reading, and please, just this once, let the bedbugs bite!
