In my recent interview with Space And Time's Hildy Silverman (if you haven't read it, you can find it here), I asked why the magazine didn't publish flash fiction. 

Hildy told me to watch out for a readers' poll, asking if it was something they'd like to see included.  True to her word, the poll is now open.  If you'd like to see S&T open its submission gates to shorter works of horror, fantasy, science-fiction, or combinations thereof, please vote here.

While you're there, check out the new 'Dear Cthulhu' column by Patrick Thomas.

I'm very, VERY glad that she's doing such a good job with Space and Time. Flash fiction or not, it's good to see someone doing their best to promote a print periodical these days.

I agree. You see so few editors and publishers out there promoting their magazines at all. It's quite stunning.

Then again maybe they are and I don't run in the right circles....

Sadly, precious few do. Most are perfectly passive about it, or figure that sending the editor to conventions to preen for photos and let the wannabe writers touch their robes is enough. And then you get the really ridiculous issues: I quit working for Science Fiction Eye for a lot of reasons, but one of the biggest was that its editor/publisher went out of his way to scuttle any possible plans for successful promotion. (Completely by accident, I managed to get a good review in Wired, back when the magazine was reasonably new. His response to the huge turnout of new subscribers was to delay the magazine for 2 1/2 years, thereby giving it the nickname "The Last Dangerous Magazine". I thought that nickname was libelous: contributors to The Last Dangerous Visions got paid.) By the time he shut down in the middle of the night in 1999, he'd done such a spectacular job at driving off subscribers, advertisers, and contributors that people joked that he'd stolen his entire business plan from repeated viewings of The Producers.

Maybe you should write the screenplay ;)

Owning a magazine must be hard work, but on the other hand, I guess it's like novels, you have to promote it. I don't know if S&T will end up accepting flash fiction, but I applaud them for considering a change.
