5 Things Make an Updatery Thursday Post

*emerges from the haze of vacation* I was mostly offline over the holidays, which was a good thing. Now is the time on Sprockets when we get up 2 hours earlier and attempt to hit the ground running!

  1. New Uncanny Magazine Issue 8 is out! Part 1 is live on the website, and you can purchase the full issue at fine retailers everywhere. Better yet, subscribe or contribute to our Patreon! That’s how we keep the Space Unicorn Ranger Corps in fighting shape!
  2. New Verity! Extra, announcing this year’s theme! A Year of Firsts, in which we will be looking at lots of “firsts” for the series, which plausibly includes me consuming some New Adventures novels in the not-so-distant future…All of Michael’s collecting over the years will come in VERY handy as I have access to LOTS of cool firsts right in the house!
  3. New Directions in Special Collections (the book formerly known as The 21st Century Special Collections Reader) is still chugging along. We have all of our essays in hand in SOME form, and are working on polishing, etc. Beth is meeting with our editor at Midwinter.
  4. I’m now in the Program Prioritization process segment of the winter. I have 20 programs to assess every week from now until the end of March. So if I’m absentee from the internet, you know why.
  5. Caitlin LOVED Star Wars: The Force Awakens. LOVED. She is very clear that Rey is the best thing ever.
