2019 In The Rearview
From the desk of the LampLight editor:
2019 wasn’t a good year here. I’m not going to go into the details and sad stories, but I am going to apologize that it affected LampLight, but for the readers who were waiting for the issue, and the writers whose submissions were horribly delayed.
For the readers: The September issue came out in November. We are pushing the December issue to January, both to give a little breathing room and to ensure all the stories will be eligible for ‘…of the year’ type awards. After that, we will be back on schedule.
Issue 8.1 is amazing, by the way. I hope you enjoy it.
For the writers: all the submissions from March-May of 2019 have been read, and responded to. Please check your inboxes or Submittable account for replies. Again, I am sorry this took so long.
I made the decision once I got behind to still take the time and diligence with each submission as I normally would, rather than try to cut corners to finish faster.
For those who submitted in October – December of 2019, I’m getting to your submissions now, and the response time should be much better this go-round.
We’ll have five issues of LampLight in 2020. We will have some great classics, starting with version of Frankenstein that shows the differences between the 1818 and 1831 editions. We are going to publish some poetry, that I am particularly excited about. And that’s just the beginning.
2020, here we come.
