Re: Galaxy's Edge

Tangent just put 17 Galaxy's Edge stories on their recommended list, which is not at all bad for a bi-monthly: “To Catch a Comet” by Sylvia Spruck Wrigley (Galaxy's Edge #19, 3-4/16) “The Vampire's New Clothes” by Martin L.

Re: What are a couple of things that have improved your writ

It sounds simplistic, but when I finish a story or a chapter I read it aloud, even in an empty room. And I find that some sentences that are grammatically correct and got by me when I proofread can be awkward or even a bit confusing...and you NEVER want you reader to stop -- not to think, or eat, or...

Re: themed anthologies

Three of the anthologies I mentioned are out of print. SHAGGY B.E.M. STORIES is back
in print under a new title: BUG-EYED MONSTERS AND BIMBOS. (The publisher didn't know
what a B.E.M. was.) Anthologies don't live that long. Of the 42 I've edited since 1988, I
think 4 are still available.

Thanks. For the record, this (on September 16) is the first I've heard about it.

Addendum: I received congratulations from maybe 300 writers, editors, publishers, fans, and
total strangers around the world by the end of September, so clearly -somebody- heard

Slush

There seems to be a lot of curiosity and some misinformation about slush, so I thought I'd run this column, which was an editorial I wrote for Jim Baen's Universe a few years ago. It's still every bit as true. Everyone talks about slush, but no one does anything about it. Except read it. Very reluct...

Established authors don't go into the slush pile (though of course they did before they became established authors.) Back in the late 1990s, when I was doing the "Ask Bwana" column for Speculations, one of the questions concerned the odds of getting out of the slush pile. I contacted Gardn...
