I’m gathering up a few bits of news related to Unlikely Story, some of which I’ve mentioned elsewhere, but all of which are worth repeating.
With the publication of Unlikely Story #8: The Journal of Unlikely Cryptography, we’re moving to a subscription-only model for the PDF version. We’ll continue to publish each new issue online, but now you can also get the PDF version sent straight to your inbox. And it’s free! What’s not to like about that? So head on over to the Unlikely Story blog, and sign up for your free subscription today.
Speaking of Unlikely Story #8, the issue just received a very nice review from Lois Tilton at Locus Online. Congratulations to all of our authors, particularly Barry King and Mari Ness whose stories earned a coveted ‘Recommended’ rating.
And speaking of Locus Online and going back to Unlikely Story #7: The Journal of Unlikely Entomology, Maria Dahvana Headley’s story, The Psammophile made the 2013 Locus Recommended Reading List, which also means it’s on the ballot for the Annual Locus Award. Anyone can vote, and the deadline is April 15. The ballot also allows for write-in nominations, so the other original work published by Unlikely Story in 2013 is eligible as well.
Looking ahead, we’re closing in on our final selections for Unlikely Story #9: The Journal of Unlikely Cartography, which will be published in June 2014. While we’re finalizing our selections, we remain open to submissions for Unlikely Story #10: The Journal of Unlikely Entomology.
That’s all the Unlikely news that’s fit to print.
