Deep Magic: The E-zine of High Fantasy and Science FictionMay 2004
Note From the Editors
May 2004
his past month was an exciting month at Deep Magic as we saw our subscriber and downloadnumbers continue to increase. The launch of our new world-building project, Kenatos, hasalso been an immediate success. This was no more apparent than with our writing challenge,which was the most successful yet. And we’re going to do something special with the results. Inthis issue, we printed ten of the writing challenges we received. After you read through them, re-turn to the page where you downloaded this issue and vote in the poll. You are deciding which of these challenges (as many as you like) will be included in the ofcial Kenatos Bestiary! For thosewhose challenges didn’t get published, we invite you to rework the piece and submit it directly tothe Kenatos project. We are always on the lookout for new creatures, races, stories, etc. for Kena-tos.This month, we hope to bring two new elements to Deep Magic. First, the Kenatos websiteis under construction and will hopefully be available soon. In addition, we are currently in betafor our new online submissions system. So for all you writers out there, stay tuned. You cancheck our forums for up-to-date information.The writing challenge this month is another Kenatos-related exercise, so don’t miss it. And don’t skip the other regular features in this issue. The Geek’s Guide to Grammar andPage Turners: Deep Magic Looks at Books are back for another round. So are the stories. KeriStevenson continues her novel
Royalty of Wind, Fire, and Clay
and Bret Ludwig chimes in witha fantasy short of his own entitled
The Archer and the Dove
. Two Science Fiction pieces are alsoincluded:
 A Taste of Time
by Abby Goldsmith and
The Interstellar Public Health Inspector
byNigel Atkinson. As an added bonus, we have reprinted a chapter from Terry Brooks’ new book,
Sometimes the Magic Works
, which explores the craft of writing. For aspiring writers, there aresure to be some nuggets of wisdom and advice for you.We would like to look ahead a few months and give all you authors a chance to submitto a couple themed issues we are planning. In August, we are planning a Children’s issue, so if you would like to submit a story aimed for children or youth, please do so no later than June 20.In October, once again, we will be doing our Horror issue. If you enjoy putting a little scare intoyour stories, send them along. Just make sure, of course, that it is still appropriate for our ‘safeplaces for minds to wander’ theme.If you haven’t dropped by our forums recently, you should pop in and say ‘hello.’ We’vebeen getting more activity there as staff and readers discuss the Deep Magic issues. Registeringis free, your email address is kept strictly condential, and you can always get the latest fromboth staff and fellow readers. As always, we thank you for downloading Deep Magic, and we hope you enjoy our latestoffering. All the best,The Editors
