SPECIAL: As of this very moment, we have not received a single ‘bad’ review for our debut issue. To sum up: “excellent” and “wonderful” seem to be the words of choice used to describe our contents and “looks great” summarizes how readers feel about our design and layout. We are, of course, most proud of the many “thank you for bringing it back” notes we’ve received.
You’ll all be happy to know that the fiction content for our next issue – Winter 2018 – has all been selected. Editing commences, as does the selection of art. We’re still filling subscriptions (the local PO was unable to handle the deluge in one sitting; they are now denuding the regional NH post offices for appropriate stampage) and we are receiving inquiries regarding advertising, not to mention ooodles (official measure) of submissions.
