    Some sad news: Both Raygun Revival and Escape Velocity SF magazines are closing their publishing doors. They were personal favorites of mine, and both were token-payment publications. Surely a sign of the tough economic times and how hard it is for publishers to remain viable. I will miss them. In past years I had sold short fiction to both, and even had an audio adaption of my Outer Space Theater story featured as a podcast on Raygun Radio Episode 18.

    Raygun Revival will publish two more "mega" issues to clear their inventory of paid-for stories, and it may return as a for-the-love zine. I hope so.

    Do Svidanya RGR and EV. :(

    Have had several of my stories appear in Ray Gun Revival...a sad time indeed. :(
    Hopefully they do come back soon.
