I finally subscribed to Talebones.
Is it because of the current current subscription drive? Is it because the new issue features Jim Van Pelt and Paul Melko (among others)–names to conjure with, in my view? Is it because, back when I was submitting to them (a few years ago now) they wrote some of the most agreeable, most encouraging rejection notes I’ve ever received?
No. All those things are true, but they’re not relevant. The real reason is much simpler.
