Welcome along to this week’s bulletin. Fairly quiet on the news front this week, actually.

Fresh Fiction

At PodCastle: Stereogram of the Gray Fort, in the Days of Her Glory, by Paul M. Berger.

BULL SPEC 6′s cover art.

Venue News

Kasma SF has closed to submissions.

As has The Edge of Propinquity

And Flashquake.

It’s entirely possible (and very likely) that I’ve missed a whole lot of stuff out, so if you know of any news that’s not up here let everybody know in the comments. Thanks!
