I had no idea you were part of this zine! It's a nice mag, to be sure. Maybe I'll submit something if inspiration graces me with its presence.

Yup, tis me. Thank you! I'm really happy with it. There'll be a little somethin' for everyone when content goes up.

I forgot to add that the poetry and reviews submissions are *very* few and far between, so I'm hoping to see more of those this time.

Everything I write is horrifying (LOL) to me so I will submit it all even this comment

Hey Elphaba,

I thinking about submitting a review or two to your site. What's your definition of horror?

I just finished "The Trial" by Kafka and "Jane Eyre" by Bronte. The latter has a gothic horror feel to it, and, well, I guess Kafka speaks for himself. I was wondering if you'd be interested in me doing some reviews.

strangedaze, you can send one review. I fixed up the guidelines to clarify something that I hadn't considered. I won't take multiple submissions from the same writer for the same category (fiction, poetry, reviews), but one for each is acceptable. But not in the same email (!!!); it'll be returned if there's more than one piece attached.

I have a reviews editor now, and he'll be looking over those submissions.

AFA "Jane Eyre" goes, personal opinion, I don't really consider that horror. You're right about Kafka.

Issue #1 will be online tomorrow, for anyone who wants to check it out-- there will be great stuff within.

Also, submissions for the summer issue are open for sixteen more days. We would really like to see more book reviews; like I said above, those rarely come in.
