I’ve just shut off the Futurismic fiction submissions webform, and after two more stories – one in November and one in December – we’re not going to be publishing any more fiction for a while.
Especially sad for me. Futurismic published one of my stories a while back—and although they haven’t bought any more, both Paul and Christopher East (the fiction editor) seem to like the sort of thing that I write, so I’d been figuring that I had a pretty good chance of selling more to them in the future.
Paul does hold some hope for the future:
Don’t go calling us a dead venue; we’re just gonna hibernate for a while.
Sad news even so.
