Plum is pretty close to being my all-time favourite writer.

I'd be interested in submitting to your magazine.

Hello and welcome, Doug. I think you'll fit in very well here, regardless of your misfit list! I'm also interested in learning more about your magazine - the bio pieces sound great. What can we do to contribute?

Wow, thank you for your welcome!

Also, happy 4th of July to all you folks in the US. It's been a fun day over here.

Thank you also for your interest in the budding magazine. It just started receiving submissions last weekend. I've only announced its beginning in one other venue (a forum that I knew of before finding this one, one that is mostly frequented by science fiction and fantasy writers) and I have had three stories submitted so far from that forum.

The focus of the magazine is historical/contemporary fiction and historical/contemporary narrative. The idea is to open up the whole of real human experience as fodder for story. Setting is important--each story is expected to have a fairly precise time and place.

Anyway, I'd obviously love to talk more about the magazine. If I were to begin a thread that focused on that topic, where would be the best place to put such a thread?

Historical Fiction/General Discussion is fine, since it contains historical fiction.

Welcome, Doug! I'm partial to physicists myself, since I'm married to one!

I hope you enjoy the forum.
