Issue Five of StoryHack is now out in both Kindle and Print versions. This issue includes a story written by me! I hope you’ll all buy the issue and try to guess which story I wrote. Leave me a comment if you have a guess.
I’m really proud to be in the same magazine as some authors whose work I’ve bragged about in the past, JD Cowan and Jon Mollison. There are some other names I recognize as well, and some I don’t — maybe they’re new to being published like I am.
I’ve slacked off on writing additional short stories, but this publication might encourage me to get back to it. I’ve got another major career shift coming up soon, but if I can get that sorted out, I might hit the keyboard again.
Sadly, Broadswords and Blasters has announced that they will cease operations, but they’re going out with a bang. Issue 12 is being released/shipped on the 15th, and you can order it now in Kindle or Paper formats. It’s a double-length issue, so you get a lot of stories (I just checked the table of contents — 18 stories) for your money.
I’m a little disappointed in myself that I haven’t read or reviewed more issues of Broadswords and Blasters, and also that I never submitted a story to it. They have been one of the few magazines with the goal of entertaining their readers rather than convincing them to think a certain way.
I’m hoping to put out a couple of reviews of back issues next month, and I’d like to eventually get to all of them. They will still be available at Amazon, so if you like issue 12, you’ve got 11 more to check out.
If you like StoryHack and/or Broadswords and Blasters, you might also like Cirsova. They don’t have a new issue out right now, but one is scheduled for March, and if you’ve been slacking on your reading like I have, there are probably some issues for you to catch up on.
Leave a comment and let me know what you think of these magazines, and whether there are others you read regularly. I’m going to buy the magazines I’ve highlighted today, and I hope you’ll join me so we can boost them up in the Amazon rankings and maybe bring in a few new readers.
