Entertainingly Evil

From the Editor’s Lair by Jennifer Brozek

There have been some good things in the slush pile recently. Thank you, keep it up. Also, if I’ve talked to you at a convention, make sure you note that in the email submission.

Thoughts about the slush pile:
1. Please do not send me stories about “gypsies.” If you mean the Romani, or Travelers, please use that term.

2. Try to stay away from stereotypical caricatures. In particular, the Bwahahaha EVIL GUY. No villain is evil for evil’s sake.

3. I’m getting a lot of fantasy. I’d like to see more sci-fi. I’d also like to see more reprints from 2014 or before. I will not accept reprints from 2015.

Here’s what we have for June. Suffice it to say that I really like these stories.

“Target Audience” by H.L. Fullerton
“Sweet Nothings” by Wendy Hammer
“Roses are Forever” by Rebecca Fung
“In Flight Service” by Edward Ahern
“The Ghosts of Second Children” by G.G. Silverman
“Good Intentions” by Gerri Leen
