We’ve been busy over at the Journal of Unlikely Entomology. First off, we’ve wrapped up our selections for Issue #4, and we were delighted to officially unveil the ToC. Come November, we’ll present the following buggy tales for your reading pleasure:
The Famous Fabre Fly Caper by Matthew Bennardo
Deep Dark by Jonathan Maberry
The Candy Aisle by Joanne Merriam
Invasives by Sunny Morraine
In Your Own Backyard by Michael D. Winkle
If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll know what comes before 4 is 3.5, and if you haven’t read our third-and-a-half issue, you really should. It recently picked up a nice review at Locus Online, but to paraphrase Levar Burton, you don’t have to take their word for it. Go check it out for yourself! (And if you’re so inclined, let us know what you think.)
In case you missed our various announcements, we’re currently reading for our special one-off architecture issue. We’re looking for tales of odd buildings, unlikely cities, strange towers, and weird tunnels. Basically, if you build it, they will come. (I don’t know who they are, but I’m all about the quoting and paraphrasing tonight.) Which is to say, if you have an architectural story, please send it our way. While we’re reading for the architecture issue, we, of course, remain open to regular submissions, and we’re looking for art submissions for all our issues, too.
Finally, I have it on good authority that sometime in the near(ish) future, we’ll have fabulous entomologically-themed merchandise for sale! Including, but not limited to, products featuring the gorgeous cover art from our ‘hello, world’ mini issue. Stay tuned! But for now, that’s all the grumpish news that’s fit to print.
