EscapePod has a new slush reader!

EscapePod is a podcast that features fun and adventurous science fiction stories. I've never read slush for a publication before. My official title is Associate Editor. "Slush" is a bit archaic, but it's basically the big pile of submissions sent to the magazine in the hopes of getting published. I'm always thrilled when I receive a hold notice from an editor because it means I have "passed the slush." It sounds daunting, like I've just walked through the Fire Swamp, but it's not that serious. All it means is that a first reader (that's me!) has enjoyed the story enough to pass it up for further consideration. Check out my bio and some of the other folks I'll be working with and when submissions open up, send us a story.
