Starting with BCS #328 later this month, BCS will switch from online and ebook publication to all-print publication.
With the growing population of the short fiction readership that’s embracing the cost, convenience, and accessibility of print magazines, this change in format will place our authors’ great secondary-world fantasy stories in the hands of more readers worldwide than our website, podcast, and international ebook distribution are able to reach.
Each new issue of BCS will be available in print copy at your local newsstand, indie bookstore, and big-box chain bookstore. The BCS website will be taken down and replaced with a convenient web portal for ordering print copies of every back issue, from BCS #325 through BCS #1, delivered conveniently to your door in just 4-6 weeks.
Acquiring print publication rights to all 700+ stories previously published in BCS and forthcoming, which were contracted for electronic publication only, will require additional funding. Our Kickstarter to support paying our authors a pro rate for these print rights launches this afternoon. We have a stretch goal of providing BCS Audio Fiction Podcast episodes on cassette tapes, mailed conveniently to your door. Please consider supporting us! Thank you.
