Jun 27th, 2012 | By | Category: News & Announcements

Readers – Several readers to handle first looks at short story submissions […]



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 […]



You’ll be glad you kept a shovel on hand

Jan 3rd, 2010 | By | Category: CG Blog

We have almost dug ourselves out from the veritable mountain of submissions to the Any Previous Genre issue. Wow, people – we are just flabbergasted. We surpassed our previous highest submission total by forty-three percent. 43. Point-nine, to be exact. Unbelievable. After passing through our slush reading process, a little less than half of the […]



You can spin the dreidel with Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock

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

What an exhausting weekend. Fortunately it was a good one this year for us. Not terribly stressful. Worked off a lot of tension and energy playing the new Wii (our 3-year-old son’s pretty good at it. Who knew?). We saw that all of you seem to have been busy over the weekend too. I thought […]

This blog has become severely neglected recently. I’m very sorry for that – this season does create chaos. I’ll be so glad when it’s over. But I would anticipate updates staying sporadic until January. A few bullet points to summarize what’s been going on: The proof for Issue 14 has been shipped and is on […]



Why wait any longer for the world to begin

Nov 17th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Sorry for the lack of posts. I can say in all honesty that it’s because I have been busting my ass on CG. Yesterday I finalized the print, pdf, Kindle and prc editions of Issue 13. Who’s awesome? That’s right. Actually we have to wait for the proof of the print edition to arrive before […]



They said I probably shouldn’t fly with just one eye

Oct 20th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Progress is progressing! The print edition of Issue 12 is done! The 2nd proof arrived yesterday, and Kay and I both went through it with a fine-toothed comb for any little errors. Then I fixed up what we found, and today I converted the file to PDF, uploaded it and submitted for the third time. […]



‘Cause we seem to understand the urgency

Oct 14th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

We’re still waiting to hear back from a couple of writers about the edits to their stories. Even though we’re still okay for time *knock wood* I’m getting a bit antsy. Want to put this puppy to bed so I can focus on the other editions. I did finalize a couple more of the stories, […]



Sometimes you think you’re gonna get it

Oct 7th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Editing happened! We’re not finished, but progress was made. Hurrah! Today was Mad Communication Day. I must have sent a good 20-25 emails covering various subjects for the magazine. Mostly about Issue 12, although there were a few things about past and future issues as well. Kay also sent quite a few emails as she […]



Usually Kind To Smaller Man

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

Stats! Now that we’ve closed submissions on our first year of issues, I went and counted up our Fiction submission totals. I found some very interesting things about our Male/Female submission ratios. These numbers disregard submissions that weren’t ever under consideration – i.e. submissions that were too long/too short, or were withdrawn by the writer […]
