Fund Drive Posts #3, by Niall Harrison (09/26/11)
We've added 5% to the fund drive total since this morning, which is brilliant -- but there's a long way to go yet. Here are some more people talking about the magazine. Karen Burnham at the Locus Roundtable blog: "We...

This week's issue is up! We have an interview with David Agranoff about deep ecological fiction, April Grant's poem "Wallpaper", Mark Plummer's latest Paraphernalia column, and a review of Christopher Priest's new novel, The Islanders, with reviews of books by...

Fund Drive Posts #1, by Niall Harrison (09/26/11)
To kick things off, a few posts I've spotted over the last week or so: David Soyka at Black Gate: "one value of 'subscribing' is you at least get a tax deduction out of it." Good point! Articles Editor and...
Spreading the Word, by Niall Harrison (09/26/11)
We've only got a couple more weeks left in this year's fund drive, and still quite some way to reach our target. So today we're asking for your help: not just donations (although if you've been meaning to donate but...
Sunday Reading, by Niall Harrison (09/25/11)
In under the wire, again: this week's reading was Fire by Kristin Cashore, a prequel to her first novel, Graceling that retains its predecessor's sentence-level poise and directness -- not to mention a similarly young, female, superpowered protagonist -- but...

Sunday Reading, by Niall Harrison (09/18/11)
Triptych, then. Having finished it earlier this week, I'm settling on the opinion that it is a novel whose parts are of variable quality. Specifically the long middle section that I was just starting last week, in which we inhabit...
Horizontal Connections: 16 September 2011, by Niall Harrison (09/16/11)
Two days later than intended, this week, for which apologies; travel got in the way. But here are the links: Coffeeandink has links to further discussion on YesGayYA, perhaps most notably Malinda Lo's stats post; see also Cleolinda's post here...
YesGayYA, by Niall Harrison (09/12/11)

Sunday Reading, by Niall Harrison (09/11/11)
Good intentions are a wonderful thing. Having kicked off last Sunday on the grounds that Sundays are a good time to get in some blogging, this weekend I was in York visiting three-fifths of Eve's Alexandria, and have had very...

Sunday Reading, by Niall Harrison (09/04/11)
Over on Twitter, there is the hashtag #fridayreads, the idea behind which is, unsurprisingly, that you should tweet what you're reading on any given Friday. For the past few weeks, partly as a response to the fact that I seem...
From the Archives, by Niall Harrison (09/03/11)
The rewarding aspect of our current project to check old SH content and get it ready for importing to a new version of the website is that quite often I get distracted by the pages I'm meant to be checking...
