Summer Update

We’re gathering up the contents of the next issue as we speak. This is another great-looking issue!  We should have Thom Davidsohn back for the cover along with a handful of prior EV contributors and, as always, some great talent new to our pages.

We moved the Guidelines page under our About menu item so that we could create a link to the current issue right in the menu bar. Hopefully that makes sense to people.

There are a number of things that have been posted on our Facebook page, so we want to put them up here:

While it can be hard to keep up with their volume, Daily SF publishes a lot of great work. Our editor recently supported their Kickstarter (even $5 is a huge benefit for them). Check it their Kickstarter effort.

This one is really cool: Tor will be published the first-ever English translation of a Chinese science fiction novel! Author Ken Liu translated The Three-Body Problem by Liu Cixin (the first of a trilogy) which has sold more than 400,000 copies in China. We think World SF is very cool—you know that people outside of the US, the UK, Australia, and Canada write science fiction, right?—and we think it’s very exciting to see what’s going on in China as far as science fiction writing goes.

And finally, for those of you who are trying to write for a living, Nick Mamatas has an incredible book from Apex Publication called Starve Better which is filled with great advice and tactics to make writing a reality. And yes, he does paint a very realistic portrait of what writing for a living is like and it ain’t all glamor and parties.

We should have more details about the next issue of EV early next month! Until then, keep reading!
