EscapePod silence...

Post by seani » Tue Apr 20, 2010 12:44 pm

...but PodCastle and PseudoPod seem to be going.

Nothing sinister or unfortunate I hope. Did I miss an announcement?

Yes, you missed an announcement, but it's not your fault. There has not been an update to the EP blog, but Steve Eley has announced in the forums that he will be steppping down as editor, for many reasons, a main one being the recent birth of his new daughter. This week there should be a Metacast to announce the path forward. I think you will all like the results.

Thanks! Good to hear that it's a change in circumstances.

Sorry about that. I can see how I was misleading regarding Norm. 'Twas not my intention. :)

Hope not, then they'd have to look for a replacement again in 2 years.

Just wanted to remind everyone to go submit and/or vote at the Escape Artists flash contest. Not to jack up anyone's votes in particular, but face it, if you vote for good stuff, chances are you'll vote for a fellow Drabble/Dribble drivel drafter.

:lol: It was also announced that our own frankly awesome Swamp would be assisting in some capacity. Kick ass, man. :D

Though I'm sure the folks at the Escape Artists forums feel like Swamp is their frankly awesome Swamp. I guess we'll just have to share. :shock:

Grats Swamp. Have fun in your new capacity.

I'm mostly just keeping on with moderating the forums, plus helping with slush and assisting in anything Mur needs. She is at the controls. I am excited to see where she steers.

EDIT: Scattercat has been reading slush, too.

It's pretty much all awesomeness.

Mur ultimately picks the stories, along with the awesome slush help mentioned.
Various talented narrators will read, per usual.
Mur and Norm will co-host.
