Night Train Ceases Publication
Yes, the rumors are true. It's been ten years of fun and games, and despite the lengthy respite I just took, I find my interest waning. I want to apologize first to the people whose work I accepted and did not publish. I didn't plan to quit originally, and so I held off on publishing your work. Any vilification I get for screwing you over is well deserved. I'd like to thank a few people whose contributions went above and beyond what I asked for and needed. First of all, my co-founder Rod Siino, whose business sense and initial fundraising made the magazine go,and who has remained steadfast in his advice and support over the years. And in alpha order, Zett Aguado, Steve Almond, Robert Boswell, Souxsie Campbell, Jai Clare, Darlene DeVita, Ed Falco, Alicia Gifford, Sue Henderson, DeWitt Henry, Tom Jackson, Pamela Painter, Cami Park and Heather Sullivan. Special thanks to Alicia Gifford, my fiction editor--and writer--extraordinaire, with us since (nearly?) the beginning. And thanks to all of our many associate editors, readers,subscribers and financial supporters without whom we could not have existed.
New Firebox Fiction by Mather Schneider
Night Train 11.1 Now Live
Thanks for reading. In case you don't look at the table of contents, NT will be on hiatus from now until our tenth anniversary in February 2012. In the meantime, we'll be putting together a new website, hopefully with some slick new oddities and a look geared toward the next ten years. The accepted Firebox fiction entries we have backlogged will continue to appear nearly every week until we run out. Anything still in the submission queue will be returned with our regrets.
