When I get more solid dates on the date to be confirmeds, I’ll announce them.

ANY OTHER BUSINESS:-

All the dates I had for publication have now passed. Due to the pandemic, people have other priorities. Ghostlight are hoping they will go to print in the next 2 weeks.

The release date for On Time has also passed, we were set for June 27th but that’s been and gone. Having recently checked with them, sadly they were delayed but I’m told we’re close to go time.

I’ve been paid by the good folks from Wordland 8, which hopefully means they too are not far off their release date. I know I was asked for my address, so my contributor copy should be on its way soon.

Kasma SF have given me a provisional date of October for my publication there. I’m looking forward to working with Alex.

The last 2 stories out from the January Submission Challenge were withdrawn. There are also still 2 stories outstanding from the original September Challenge! One of those is going to be on hold a while longer, thanks to COVID issues.

Tuck & Roll in Automobilia is still on-going, at this point, I expect death before publication.

Fillers won’t be appearing in Again, Hazardous Imaginings. I was asked to do a full rewrite which I wasn’t prepared to do, especially after being told “yours is the best thus far and the most fitting for the anthology’s theme.
