Welcome to the WT / HPL message board, which really wouldn't exist without the helpful assistance of Jeff Vandermeer and Night Shade Books. As I'm new to these parts . . . um . . . let's see . . . I guess an introduction is called for: I'm managing editor for both magazines, effective with Issue 337 of Weird Tales and Issue 3 of HPL's; editor of Jabberwocky; editor for Wildside Press, Cosmos, Borgo, and Prime. I generally handle marketing, advertising, design, illustrations, and more, for HPL's/Weird Tales.
If you have any questions I'm generally available (if a bit overwhelmed at the point due to my workload), but do let me know what you'd like to see on this board . . .

Nice to see that WT and HPL now have a board, Sean. Cool stuff.

Isn't there a Weird Tales-Vandermmer special coming out this year? Could you give us some info on that, including the projected release date? Thanks.
|Posted on Thursday, February 24, 2005 - 11:30 am: |
Due to a heavy workload, the VanderMeer special issue was actually re-scheduled for late 2005, which means we'll be getting out the Jeffrey Ford special issue (August/September) before his.
|Posted on Thursday, February 24, 2005 - 12:33 pm: |
Very cool! I was unaware of a Ford special issue. Thanks for the info Sean.
Are there any other author special issues that I should know about?'
|Posted on Thursday, February 24, 2005 - 12:54 pm: |
I'm still writing secret (*#$*(*@#*(#*!! lives.
|Posted on Thursday, February 24, 2005 - 05:37 pm: |
We haven't anyone else quite yet, but we're talking to one or two more authors, for 2006. We certainly wouldn't want to overdo it, with having special issues for all four issues . . . which is something for us to think over.
Who would you want to see honored in Weird Tales with a special issue?

Are Darryl and George still involved with Weird Tales, or have you taken over their responsibilities?
|Posted on Friday, February 25, 2005 - 08:38 am: |
No. Darrell and George are still senior editors. In this case the managing editor simply handles marketing, advertising, design, and coordinates with DNA Publications. I think I have enough on my plate without worrying about picking the fiction . . . :-)

> Who would you want to see honored in Weird Tales with a special issue?
Well as you're asking -- me!
I'm good enough and have done enough to deserve it. And I have lots of great new material. And I need the exposure.
That's my honest opinion, anyway. :-)

It's nice to discover yet another place to find updates about my favorite magazines.
By the way, I recently noticed the little face peering out of the "O" in the Lovecraft logo. The fact that I had overlooked it for so long is rather creepy to me. (How long has he been watching me?)

Peter Straub, definitely! China Mieville, K.J. Bishop, Neil Gaiman all would be cool choices too.

Sean, who might I talk to about a couple of submission-related questions, and how might I contact them?
Specifically, I've had two stories accepted by HP Lovecraft's Magazine of Horror, and was wondering when they were scheduled to see print. (The stories were "Amontillado Cam" and "Monopoly.")
I'd also like to submit more stories, but have lost the editor's submission address due to a computer glitch. How might I submit more stories?
Thank you for your time.

Both were already published, in . . . issue one point five, which came out several months ago, just for the subscribers. I'll check with George, regarding this. He was managing editor, then. Contributor copies were all sent out. If you have a new address, do let me know (email me at firstname.lastname@example.org).

I second China Mieville and K.J.Bishop! Also, another Tanith Lee special issue would be great.

I too had one of my stories ("Hello Dolly," Said the Girl) accepted for HPLMOH. Could you please tell me when it is expected to see publication?
|Posted on Monday, April 04, 2005 - 11:12 am: |
Marvin Kaye has the final say, in regards to the contents, but as I've just finalised the contents to issue three, I'd imagine it would be issue four or five, later this year.

Honored with a special Weird Tales issue?
Don Webb. That would be excellent.
|Posted on Wednesday, April 06, 2005 - 07:11 pm: |
Sean, will you release the TOCs as the issues release?
|Posted on Thursday, April 07, 2005 - 08:38 am: |
Yes. I pretty much know what's in the third issue, but I'll probably wait for another four weeks before officially releasing those.
|Posted on Tuesday, February 28, 2006 - 11:59 am: |
Has it been four weeks yet?
