Re: Magical Realism?

I won with magical realism, albeit in an historical setting. And speaking from a PodCastle perspective (where I slush), "speculative element in the real world" absolutely counts as fantasy for our purposes. Personally I usually find it more interesting than secondary world, especially if ...

Magical Realism?

I've written a short story and the only *label* I can come up with would be magical realism (could have that wrong). I'd like to submit it here, but then, I'm not sure it quite constitutes fantasy. There is a speculative element that hits you right at the front, but the story almost seems too "...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 34

Quick question: do the certificates for Silver HM look the same as the reg HM? I think they're pretty close. I just got mine in the mail. I've only entered the contest twice before (1 R, 1 SHM) but from what I can tell from online photos, it looks the same... minus that it says Sliver Honorable Men...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 34

I'm still waiting too. I emailed Joni at the start of the month and she said results would come soon--then came the waves but my email is still silent. I'd hate to bug her again but I am beginning to really think mine got lost. wotf014 I'll wait a little longer. She's got to be swamped.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 34

I think you're right, Brittany. Email submissions are, sadly, paper (That leafy stuff that comes in the mailbox). Joni has to physically receive and match them with their author info sheets (Which she generated herself in her infinite kindness) in order to act upon them. At least, that is my unders...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 34

And according to the writing tip he just sent out, he's finished judging Q2. Now we get to see how long the delay is between him finishing and Joni sending out notifications... I just saw that, too.
