Still Open For Poetry Submissions!

The November window for short story submissions is now closed. May or may not reopen if not enough suitable stories received for Issue #6. However, probably, next submission window will be for issue #7 and that won’t be open till late spring or early summer.

Meanwhile still open for poetry submissions! Need more poems for issue #6! (See guidelines but basically anything genre-related.)

Issue #4 complete and being proofed.

Up till 3:00 AM this morning putting finishing touches on the 4th issue of Polar Borealis Magazine.

Proofing version has gone to the eagle-eyed, ever vigilant proof reader Steve Fahnestalk and been distributed to all the contributors.

Once myriad corrections and adjustments have been made, I will post the final version online where it will be available for free download by anyone who wants to read it. I figure it will be ready to post in a week or so.

18 short stories and 20 poems in 110 pages (not counting cover) designed to be as easy on the eyes as possible on both screen and paper (if you choose to print it out).

Contributors range from beginners making their first sale to solid professionals, all writing to the “Horror” theme.

I will post it as soon as I can.

Issue #4 edging closer to publication!

All stories and poems for issue #4 of Polar Borealis have been slotted in, plus an editorial and letters of comment. Just ads, promotions, and author bios to write and place. Looks like it will be about 110 pages of material, or slightly less than the previous issue.

The proofing copy will then go out to all the contributors and, of course, the proof reader. Early August publication is looking very doable!
