We made our stretch goal, with a big surge on the last day (thank you!), and our word-count limit for submissions is now 15,000 words. Thank you for making that happen.
Thank you also to all who RT’d or shared or otherwise helped spread word, or bought gift subscriptions for other readers, or tweeted or posted about BCS #250 or stories or podcasts. That is a great help to us too; reaching readers with our stories and podcasts.
We have many great stories forthcoming this summer and fall, from returning BCS authors and ones new to our pages, including K.J. Parker, Richard Parks, Chris Willrich, Margaret Ronald, Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam, Fran Wilde, Marissa Lingen, A. Merc Rustad, P. Djèlí Clark, E. Catherine Tobler, Tamara Vardomskaya, A.J. Fitzwater, Troy Wiggins, and many promising newcomers. We hope you enjoy them!
