>News Catchup

>I was out of town for the holidays, and didn’t have much chance to get caught up posting news bits, so this will be sort of a catchall post.

First off, huge congratulations to former guest editor Alicia Gifford (Broodiness, issue 6) for her winning of a $100 prize in the StoryQuarterly Fall 2007 Fiction Contest for her story “Wreckers.”

Second, regular readers of the News may have noticed that there haven’t been any SmokeLong stats posted recently. Our service provider upgraded their servers at the beginning of December and managed to completely break the stats from that point forward. For the stats that I could see, we were well on pace to be over 200,000 page views for the last issue, but without stats for the final two weeks of the issue, I can’t guarantee that held up.

Eclectica has a new issue live, and it features work by Jason Jackson (From Halliville To Grice’s Town, issue 18), Cally Taylor (Hoover, issue 10), Jayne Pupek (Black Mollies, issue 3), William Reese Hamilton (Crossing the Orinoco, issue 18), and lots of other fine folks.

About smokelong

Our Mission: SmokeLong Quarterly is dedicated to bringing the best flash fiction to the web on a quarterly basis, whether writtenwidely published authors, or those new to the craft. The term "smoke-long" comes from the Chinese, who noted that reading a piece of flash takes about the same length of time as smoking a cigarette. All the work we publish is precisely that—about a smoke long.
