>Another sad day in the short fiction field – Jim Baen’s Universe is to close after its April 2010 issue. About the closure, editor Eric Flint says, ‘In a nutshell, we were simply never able to get and retain enough subscribers to put us on a sales plateau that would allow us to continue publishing.’ It’s a real shame to see this great online magazine fold after four years, not least for Eric and Mike and all the other staff. Sorry to hear about it guys.
I was fortunate enough to have a story published in this online staple. It was called Riding the Drop and it’s still available to read online for free here, courtesy of Jim Baen’s Universe.
