Raven Electrick: "Branches of the Past" + submission period

I've just added Branches of the Past by Fredrick Obermeyer to the fiction contents at Raven Electrick. "Branches" is a moving sf/fantasy story about memory and loss, so please check it out if you have a chance.

It looks like the submission period for Raven Electrick this year will be March instead of my usual February. I haven't posted the new guidelines yet, but there will be changes in payment rates (not for the better--down to three cents a word), word limits, etc. My Amazon.com revenues have dropped off, necessitating the pay cut. I won't go into a long lecture, but using an e-zine's Amazon referral link (rather than going directly to Amazon when you shop) is an easy way to support the small press, and costs you absolutely nothing. Anyhoo, please look for the new guidelines in late January/early February.
