WisCon and Crossed Genres

Jul 18th, 2014 | By | Category: News & Announcements

Today the convention WisCon released a WisCon Subcommittee Statement on Jim Frenkel. For those who aren’t aware, multiple complaints were made against Frenkel regarding his harassing behavior at WisCon 2013 (there were a number of other significant problems regarding WisCon’s mishandling of the situation). (There are reports of previous harassment by Frenkel. In this June […]



eHucksters: Selling ebooks at conventions (It works!)

Feb 21st, 2011 | By | Category: CG Blog

Crossed Genres just completed its first-ever convention as dealers: We had a table in the Hucksters Room at Boskone. Our overall experience was a good one; while we didn’t make much money, we did okay, met and re-met some great people, and had fun. There’s one thing in particular that we thought was worth noting […]



Many’s the time I’ve been mistaken

Mar 18th, 2010 | By | Category: CG Blog

There was a bit of interest in my answering some questions via Formspring, so I set up an account. Ask whatever about CG, Little Death, Science in My Fiction, etc. Also, if you have questions about starting a zine from scratch (and the various insanity involved in keeping it going, expanding to new projects, etc) […]

Blog posts have been thin recently largely because of a bit of burn-out on our parts; getting issue 15 and Crossed Genres Year One ready for release on the same day, plus all the long-term stuff we’ve been working on, wore us out. However, we’ve been keeping up! In fact, we’re a little ahead: the […]



Back in the saddle again… again

Jan 14th, 2010 | By | Category: CG Blog

I’m going to make a concerted effort now to get back to making at least a small post each day. Today the print edition of Issue 15 was finalized submitted and approved, the proof was ordered and shipped. Yup, all in one day. Awesome. I’m very excited to see this one. It’s really a magnificent […]



Shelter, a bed, crust of bread and a job

Apr 28th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

(I’ve had Little Shop of Horrors music stuck in my head all day.) Today has been a heavy reading day; the past 72 hours has seen our Fiction submissions increase by a little more than half. A rush of subs near the end of the month is common, although that percentage is a bit on […]
