We’re almost done with the submission process for Sybil’s Garage issue three. So far, we’ve received approximately 120 submissions. We have sent 104 rejections. We have accepted about eight stories and a couple poems. We have several in the contender category, but feel free to query if you are concerned or have any questions. As updated on Ralan.com, we plan on closing to subs mid-November, so please send your stories our way if you plan to do so.
Have you seen our new website? Hopefully, it’s easier to navigate, and I believe it’s much nicer on the eyes. The cover you see on the front page for issue three is not the real cover, but a placeholder. And many of the pictures you see in the super snazzy slideshow were taken by Devin J. Poore, with a few thrown in from my own stock. Who knows if one of these excellent shots will make it onto the cover?
Congratulations are due to Mercurio D. Rivera (picture) who just sold his story “Longing for Langalana” to Interzone. The editors praised his story, all enthusiastically chanting “yes, yes, yes!” like Meg Ryan in that movie. This is his second pro sale in a few short months, so we hope to see many more from him. Mercurio has guest blogged here during his trip to Cascadia Con.
