Submissions Update

Due to multiple factors, we are placing a moratorium on all submissions. We thank all the authors who have sent us their wonderful stories to read and apologize if we have not responded in a timely manner. Hopefully in the near future we will be able to accept submissions again, so please continue to check this website for updates.

The Courier April 08 Issue

Its done! Please click on the link below to download your copy.


This issue features fiction by Tom Sneem, Silvia Moreno Garcia, Selena Thomason, and Chris Ward, artwork by Reginald Marcellin, and photography by yours truly. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.


NOTE: In the first release (which has since been fixed), there was a layout issue with the story Mood Meds (the last sentence). Below the last sentence is available.

A tropical island, perhaps. He'd always wanted his own island.

Upcoming Release

I am pleased to announce that the first issue of The Courier will be released before next Wednesday barring any unforeseen occurrences. The issue will be directly emailed to those who subscribed to it, and everybody else will find a link on this very blog directing you to a download.

Understandably Fed Up

Sorry everybody for the major delay. Putting out a PDF magazine is tougher than we originally thought. It is coming, don't worry. That being said, we are almost done with lay-out. I was pretty sick for a while (Feb-March) so that is another reason for the delay. All three of us have been working our butts off, so please be understanding.

Thanks again,
D.N. Drake

Progress Report 2/20/08

We're about one week from releasing the first issue of The Courier. I suggest you read the editorial before delving into the fiction as there may be some confusion in regards to what we are actually publishing. We have changed our mission statement (although it is not posted on this site yet). Keep an eye out in your inbox for the PDF version if you subscribed -- it will also be available for download here (most likely).

If you'd like to subscribe email us at -- subs (dot) courier (at) gmail (dot) com

File Format

Please be sure to send your submissions as an RTF document. We've been receiving quite a few other file types, and we can't open all of them.

Thank You,
Editorial Staff

Progress Report 1/30/08

Well, we're changing things up a bit here. Our new submissions address is subs (dot) courier (at) gmail (dot) com. Please address all submissions to the editorial staff as a whole (ie. Dear Editors). Our response time is changing from 3 days to 14 days (due to the large amount of submissions). Our pay rate is still 1/2 cent (US) per word, but that too will be increasing soon (if all goes as planned).

Progress Report 1/7/08

All of us here are getting very excited with our upcoming issue. We have some excellent mundane sf lined up from both new and established writers. We also hope to include some artwork and photography. If you are an artist and/or photographer and would be interested in submitting work, please send us an ART SUBMISSION to subs (dot) courier (at) gmail (dot) com. Our pay rates for art vary.

Also, we are still NOT backlogged with submissions, so if you would like to submit a story for our first issue, please email your FICTION SUBMISSION to the above mentioned email address. We pay 1/2 cent per word, and we respond in approximately 14 days to all submissions.

Thanks again everyone,

D.N. Drake (editor)
