Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 33

I had tried to finish a humorous story for Q3 but another came into focus and took it's place. It's not far from being finished but I am apprehensive about entering it in the contest. Especially now that another one with magic is coming into focus. Still plenty of time to figure out what I want to do.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 33

Apparently scammers are now making robocalls to compile call lists they then sell to customers. When the number dialed is answered it's added to the list. I've been on a do not call list since 2011 so this method doesn't seem to have to obey that law. wotf004 As a last day subber I am quite nervous ...

In Jay Lake's bio it says he won in his last quarter of eligibility. Persistence paid off for his efforts.

Tomorrow's Thursday still nary a word has been shared between us, no nothing's been heard out-of state robo-apps are my daily calls Squirming, twitching staring at walls On breaks from writing, emails get checked Waiting for news, will my psyche get decked Everything happens for a reason they say So...

Re: Gernsback short story contest - Amazing Stories magazine

Clicked on everything I could, even binged it. The only submission window I could find was July of 2015.
Are they having a contest at this time?

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 33

It's possible some of the last day subs are still in the running. With all the confusion after the early portal closing, not to mention finishing another great anthology release, a lot of people just need rest, while we on the forum are still anxious and full of hope. wotf007

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 33

I do wonder about the ones who are finalists. From what I've read in the past Joni asks for time to let everyone know before letting the news out. I assume that doesn't apply this time.
