New sources added to watch list this fortnight.
- "Arkham Tales" magazine: "A magazine of weird fiction". Debuted today. I'm picking up new issue announcements.
- "Expanded Horizons" magazine: I'm picking up new issue announcements. Recent issue, #2, wasn't picked up because of 3 day rule, but future ones should be.
- "HorrorScope" magazine: I can pick up some, but not all, stories. It's entries in my feed are marked "[horror]".
- "Eclecticism" magazine: "Australian-run". "Driving ideas or style from a wide range of sources". Quarterly publication. No feed, but can often (but not always) catch new issue announcements via HorrorScope (Caution: My program occasionally picks crap like what to expect in next issue - but mostly issue announcements.)
Recent issue - #6 - not caught because of 3 day rule, but future ones should come.
- "Sorcerous Signals" magazine: "Realms of Imagination, Wonder and Magic. Places where heroes walk, wizards weave magic and mystical creatures dwell." Quarterly publication. No feed. Watching new issue announcements via SF Scope, in case they pick up new issue announcements. [via QuasarDragon]
- "Flashing Swords" magazine. Unknown frequency. Current issue has one free story; previous issues are free online. No feed. Watching new issue announcements via SF Scope, in case they pick up new issue announcements.
- "Dark Fire Fiction" magazine: No feed. Watching via SF Scope, in case they pick up new issue announcements. Marked "[horror]" in my output. [via SF Signal]
- Joel Priddy's "Sweetie ’n Me" comic series. [via Tor]
- Chris Tejeda's serial apocalypse novel "The Lifting of the Veil": "As most of the world is destroyed and nothing remains to fight for, Thomas Hayward leads a group of survivors against the forces that now populate Earth." I pick up new chapters.
- FictionPress: "a growing network of close to 1 million writers/readers, and home to over 1,050,000 original works. As a writer, this is a place to showcase your creativity and for a reader, FictionPress is an opportunity to feast to your heart's content."
There is just too much fiction here in many genres, a lot of it unfinished. I pick up only finished sf-relevant stories. I also tag picked up stories as "[scifi]", "[fantasy]", etc.
- I can now pick up some more free fiction from Tor.
- "Farrago's Wainscot" magazine: Occasionally picked up irrelevant posts, when looking for new issue announcements. Now have a stronger filter.
- "ElectricSpec" magazine: I was already watching its new issue announcements via SF Scope. This code is a bit more reliable now.
- "Concept Sci-fi" new issue announces watch is a bit more reliable now.
