Great news! One of my all time favorite writers, Rudy Rucker, has launched a new web zine, called FLURB.
My present strategy is simply to post a few stories by myself and my friends. I have some good stories for Issue #1, with possibly a few more coming in. You might think of this as the Cyberpunk issue.
We'll see where it leads. I still have a backlog of writer friends to hit on, so, at least for now, rather than sending me stories that you'd like me to post for you --- do it yourself!
The line up for the first issue looks wonderful:
Rudy Rucker and Paul Di Filippo,
“Elves of the Subdimensions”
“Liner Notes for Luchenko's Third Symphony
(The Arcades of Allah)”
“Evaluation of the Hannemouth Bequest
(A.k.a. Hannemouth Self-Configurable Combinatorial Array)”
“Billy and the Circus Girl ”
