Just a few hours left to preorder A Festival of Skeletons, purchase LGBTQ issue!

Oct 31st, 2010 | By | Category: News & Announcements

There are just five hours left to preorder RJ Astruc’s A Festival of Skeletons: If you have no interest at all in reading a fabulous, well thought-out, engaging story, stay away from RJ Astruc’s writing – you’ll get sucked in and read it anyway. The moment I started reading, she dragged me along for an […]

FINAL month for the LGBTQ issue!

Oct 1st, 2010 | By | Category: News & Announcements

It’s been 11 months since Crossed Genres released our LGBTQ issue, and so we’re sad to say that October is the last month it will be around. The LGBTQ has been (so far) our most successful issue and (we believe) did a lot to bring attention to LGBTQ characters in SFF. We’re very sorry to […]



CoC & LGBTQ: lost months

Sep 27th, 2010 | By | Category: CG Blog

We’re approaching the end of September, and depending on how those last few days go we have a reasonable chance of receiving more submissions to our Characters of Color issue than we did last year, for our double-sized LGBTQ issue. Of course we’ve had an entire year more to build readership and be heard of […]

The most unpleasant part of running an SF/F magazine

Nov 19th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

When I started writing this blog, it was with the intent of showing what goes into the production of a small science fiction & fantasy magazine. Obviously we don’t have a lock on the only way to do things, but I think the blog has been pretty successful in revealing the day-to-day operations, the long-term […]



This is the story of how we begin to remember

Nov 5th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

It’s very hard to struggle back into a rhythm of work after being flung out of it for so long. To anyone who says 5 days isn’t a long time, I say: clearly you have never truly been in this kind of rhythm. But we are clawing our way back to production. We got back […]
