Subterranean Magazine Cliche Issue Available for Pre-Order

Um, the title to this entry pretty much says it all, so there's no need to elaborate on it, I suspect. Here's the link to pre-order.

The magazine comes in two flavors: The standard magazine ($6 single copy US; $9 non-US), and a limited hardcover edition for $80 which will be signed by many (if not most) of the contributors, and will also include a chapbook of my short story "How I Proposed to My Wife: An Alien Sex Story," which will not be otherwise available. And here's the official story list, in case you've forgotten:

* "Scene from a Dystopia" by Rachel Swirsky
* "The Third Brain" by Charles Coleman Finlay and James Allison
* "It Came from the Slush Pile" by John Joseph Adams
* "A Finite Number of Typewriters" by Stuart MacBride
* "Cliche Haiku" by Scott Westerfeld
* "Horrible Historians" by Gillian Polack
* "Hesperia and Glory" by Ann Leckie
* "What a Piece of Work" by Jo Walton
* "Remarks on Some Cliches I Have (By Definition) Known Too Well" by Teresa Nielsen Hayden
* "The Last Science Fiction Writer" by Allen M. Steele
* "Shoah Sry" by Tobias S. Buckell and Ilsa J. Bick
* "Labyrinth's Heart" by Bruce Arthurs
* "The NOMAD Gambit" by Dean Cochrane
* "In Search Of...Eileen Siriosa" by Ron Hogan
* "Tees and Sympathy" by Nick Sagan
* "Last" by Chris Roberson
* "Refuge" by David Klecha
* "The Inevitable Heat Death of the Universe" by Elizabeth Bear

See? 18 golden hits from your favorite science fiction writers and the best new talents, for just $6! That's just 33 cents per story! Honestly, you can't afford not to get this issue of Subterranean Magazine!

(Rumor also has it that a simple touch of its pages will cure all sorts of ailments from quinsy to dropsy, and will also make the toucher up to fourteen times more attractive to members of the sex that they are most interested in. However, these claims have not been tested by the FDA. So, really, just pick it up for the stories. They're good enough.)

[I did not just make that sound. That is the sound I would have made, were I the sort that makes that sound. Just so you know.]

Nice. And nicer that they offer international shipping. :-)

Sssssssnag! I am so stoked. I cannot wait to get rid of this damn quinsy. See if I fall for that "sword swallowing audition" crap again.

Well I hope you're happy. I had to look up quinsy and dropsy to see what they were. Now I've LEARNED something.

I hope you can sleep at night.

I was going to call mine "Alien Sex Story," but you beat me to it.
