Welcome to March!
While I'd love to be able to tell you that the shirt contest entries are now available for your voting pleasure, the response to our call for entries was rather underwhelming—
Speaking of voting, the readers have chosen! Last month's Readers' Poll showed that most of you would like to see us continue to publish on a monthly schedule, and so we shall. While we won't be having a poll for this month's issue, you can expect another one next month and, hopefully, the months that follow. You can also expect a few more great changes like the ones we've introduced over the last few months.
Also, for those of you that haven't heard yet, IROSF has new real estate! If you haven't been over to Red Rocket Station yet, you're missing out on some great conversations and the chance to connect and interact with many others in the SF/F world. With just over 200 members so far, there's still time to be one of the first, so come join the crew!
As a final note, the observant reader will notice that we are running a piece of fiction this month. No, we are NOT accepting fiction submissions now. This is a one-time-only deal, intended to raise cancer awareness (and funds!). You'll notice a different donate button both above our own on the left and in the short story, "Off Season at Jay Lake." All donations made will go toward cancer research.
And now, to end on an up-beat, here's something cool!
