Once again, we are doing our special call for submissions. We are looking for: Flash and Short Fiction: This will be for the “fiction” section of our quarterly magazine. We have a bias towards speculative fiction, but will consider non-speculative pieces. Heck, it doesn’t even need to have mad scientists. We’re hoping to accept 6-8 [...]
Earlier this week, I received a link to an article on Slate entitled “Why Aren’t There More Woman Sci-Fi Writers?” Here at Mad Scientist Journal we are certainly well-intentioned and try to evaluate each story on its own merits. We don’t actively try to get more submissions based off of gender or anything. So we [...]
After some technical delay, we finally have all four collections of Mad Scientist Journal available on Amazon! I’m hoping that breaking into the Amazon market will help offset the costs of operation. Even if you have no interest in buying it, please at least take some time to help improve visibility: write a review, add [...]
Time flies when you’re stupid busy. March has been the Bataan death march of deadlines. But the Winter 2013 collection is out with (almost) no hitches. Lets look at some numbers.
I’m excited to share that the Winter 2013 collection of Mad Scientist Journal is now available. It’s only available on Smashwords at this moment, but it will be available at most other outlets within a few days. This month’s exclusive content includes Eric J. Guignard, Nicholas Knight, and Richard Zwicker! I hope you enjoy the [...]
This is a little delayed as I wanted to use the first of February for posting about our special call for submissions. It’s been a crazy month, with a few more frustrations than we’re used to, but we have soldiered on.
For the month of February, we are once again looking for content to use exclusively in our quarterly anthology. As with previous calls, we are looking for: Fictional Classified Ads: 100-500 words featuring one or more classified ads from mad scientists. Pay is $5. Flash and Short Fiction: 500-2,000 words and 2,000 to 8,000, respectively. [...]
In exchange for a free copy, Mallory Anne-Marie Forbes offered to write fair and honest reviews. She reviewed our Summer and Autumn issues from last year, and you can click the links below to see what she had to say! http://archiestandwoodsreviewsandwritings.blogspot.com/2013/01/mad-scientist-journal-summer-2012-review.html http://archiestandwoodsreviewsandwritings.blogspot.com/2013/01/mad-scientist-journal-autumn-2012review.html
We are looking to do an “Ask a Mad Scientist” column in the Autumn 2012 collection for Mad Scientist Journal. We have a couple writers picked out and now we need questions! For the next week, we are looking for people to submit questions that readers of a Mad Scientist Journal might ask a fellow [...]
As we get the hang of this whole production schedule thing, we are getting better at knowing how to plan ahead. Things went pretty well with our Summer 2012 collection. But now we look ahead and realize we have a huge kink in our production schedule: National Novel Writing Month. While certainly not all writers [...]
