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 […]



It’s got an evil attitude

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

Sory for the lack of posting in the past few days. The release of Issue 12, and then me and my whole family getting sick, slowed us down considerably. I think we knew we were all getting sick even back around the 30th, but we beat it back until after our party and the release; […]



Bring your good times, and your laughter too

Nov 1st, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

What an awesome day! The LGBTQ issue has been released! The early response has been wonderful! To our utter delight, today has been the best single day of traffic to our site… EVER. Not by a small margin either, and there’s still a couple of hours to go. And people are staying and reading, too! […]



My eyes beheld an eerie sight

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

Getting anxious for Halloween. Halloween means our Halloween/Issue 12 party, and the day after, Release Day. Oh yeah. We actually have more to do to prepare for the party then we do for the Release! I’ve been doing some little tweaks to the website here and there, but we’re really ready. We’ve been working mostly […]



Open up the throttle and stir a little dust

Aug 25th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

As I mentioned in a post earlier, Issue 9’s cover art was featured in a post on BoingBoing. It drove a lot of traffic to the site, which was a nice surprise – we didn’t know about the post until it’d been up for about 4 hours. There were some interesting comments in response, some […]



And another one gone, and another one gone

Jul 24th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

All submissions to Issue 10 that we’ve received have been read. Kay and I went through the last 20 or so, including the ones we received today. A few more pretty good ones in today’s batch. We’ll read new submissions as they come in now. By the way, about the submissions: folks, please read the […]



Release Day # 8

Jul 2nd, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Not a complicated day today. Mainly it was reading, and monitoring the response to the new issue. Pretty good response, too! I did deal with a couple little errors that needed correcting – I left out a link to a contributor’s blog, for example, and had to add it in. Nothing major, though. The reading […]



Time for a proper update

Jul 1st, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Since my post last night was only about the release of Issue 8, Here’s a proper post about yesterday (6/30). First, to whomever went and tracked down the Flash Fiction poll AFTER the deadline, even though I’d already removed all links from the website, and placed about a dozen extra votes: that was low. Votes […]



Keep moving forward

Jun 27th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

The pdf edition of Issue 8 is pretty much done. I got the entire thing reformatted to 8.5″ x 11″. But I realized that I hadn’t properly sized the cover to 8.5 x 11, so I couldn’t do the merging of the various pieces (I was at work). I’ll do the sizing over the weekend […]



An end is in sight

Jun 24th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Not the end, obviously. There is no true end. But at least the completion of Issue 8 has appeared on the horizon. The Print, online and Kindle editions are essentially finished. Still waiting for one last biography, which is really ticking me off since I’ve emailed twice about it already. If I don’t have something […]
