Despite all that, there's some good news to relate. Chip and Shannon had their baby! This probably means nothing to you, but Chip's a long-time journal reader and one of my development staff at SH, and I'm just thrilled. I'll be happier when I hear they're all home safe, though -- it was apparently a very difficult birth, involving an emergency C-section. Oof. Think happy thoughts for them, okay? Happy, placid, sleepy-baby, healing-momma thoughts...
On a completely different scale of good news, Zak's been spiffying up the SH site, sharpening graphics, fixing background problems that have been going on forever, etc. I am so happy to see these difficulties going away, I cannot tell you. If you notice any graphical difficulties with the site, now would be a good time to let me know. I can then dump them on Zak. Yay, Zak!
Of course, you should go to the site anyway, because what day is it today? It's Monday! And hopefully we can make the start of your week brighter with a new issue, including an article by David on Iain Banks's Culture novels (good stuff, if you haven't read them), an only slight-insane story by Nick Mamatas, "Time of Day", another of Ben Rosenbaum's fabulous short-shorts, "Ylla's Choice", poetry, and even a review. How wonderful is my magazine? Too darn wonderful, that's what it is.
It's nice to see that recognized -- it's been consistently at the top of the Preditors & Editors poll for the last two weeks or so. Fingers crossed that we hold that position; it's not a Hugo, but it can't hurt. :-)
Speaking of Hugo's -- have you voted yet? Only 10 days left! Please vote!
Today...well, various and sundry bits of work, but mostly revising fellowship application stuff. We'll see how long that takes, and then worry about the rest. Have a good day, munchkins.
