Starting tomorrow (Wednesday, 08/31/2016) and running through Friday (09/02/2016), Phase 2 Magazine Issue 2 will be free on Amazon.
You may remember the cover of this issue was nominated for Best Magazine Cover in this year’s Preditors & Editors Readers’ Poll, where it finished in 5th place, and has been a fan favorite since it was first revealed. As always, the cover art was done by Jason Miller.
You can find this issue on the US Kindle store here.
For those of you who are not familiar with the Preditors & Editors Readers’ Poll, it’s an annual poll where people vote across many categories for some of their favorite releases from the past year and the people who made them happen. This year is the 18th annual of this poll, and the first time Dark Futures has been nominated in any way. The categories where we appear (and links to where you can vote for that category) are:
Fiction Magazine/e-zines for Phase 2 Magazine.
Magazine/e-zine Cover Art for the cover of Phase 2 Magazine Issue 2.
Magazine/e-zine Editors for our Editor-In-Chief, David Stegora.
Science Fiction & Fantasy Short Stories for The Despot of Space Station 37-G by Roy C. Booth, which appeared in the first issue of Phase 2 Magazine. You will also find Roy nominated in several other categories.
And not directly related to Dark Futures is Writers’ Discussion Forum where you will find a Facebook group called Cyberpunk Writers nominated. Cyberpunk Writers is was founded and is still moderated by our Editor-In-Chief, David Stegora and several past contributors to Phase 2 Magazine are members.
If you could take the time to give us your vote in any or all of these categories, it would be appreciated. Voting closes on Thursday, so there’s not much time.
Finally, in celebration of the above mentioned nominations, we have made the first issue of Phase 2 Magazine free until the end of the poll.
