I’m very happy that story I sold awhile back has been published in the inaugural issue of the New Accelerator. It’s currently an iOS/Newsstand-only publication but I am told an Android version is in the works.
It will cost you a bit ($2.99/issue), but it’s a really well-designed magazine, with lots of content, smooth navigation, and slick color art for each story. It’s a great digital reading experience. One of my frustrations with genre short fiction publishing is the retrograde user experience of many online (and Kindle) publications. Here’s hoping the larger pro mags will emulate what the New Accelerator guys have done here. Short fiction is perfect for consuming on the move, so putting stories into a slick package built from the ground up for mobile devices just feels right.
It’s science fiction, after all…and this is the future, is it not?
My story is called “Product Development in the Time of the Second Coming.” It concerns a scientist struggling against a political regime that has paralyzed innovation through excessive regulation. Also there are flying cars, and the resurrected Jesus Christ is head of state.
If you read it, I hope you enjoy it! As always, any spreading of the word would be greatly appreciated.
