The Best Laid Plans…

The first part of the Year in Exile is cancelled, due to unforeseen issues. As such, I’m deep into the submission pile now, reading stories for the September and December issues.

And while things are on track for the next set of guest editors, we will always be ready to adapt.

The June issue is nearly ready, and we have more surprises coming in July.

The Year in Exile, A Note from the Editor

I’m working diligently to finish up the March issue of LampLight, and while there will be more about that soon, I am excited to announce what the plans for Volume 5 will be.

All four issues of LampLight Volume 5 will be guest edited.

The Year in Exile will start with the September issue, which will be edited by Damien Angelica Walters.

Damien’s new book, Paper Tigers has just come out, and the title story in her collection, Sing Me Your Scars has been nominated for a Bram Stoker Award.

The December issue will be edited by Katie Winter, the assistant editor of LampLight.

Katie has been with LampLight since the first issue, and her help has been invaluable. Her perspective has guided LampLight for years, and we are excited to have her at the helm.

We will update later for the editors of March and June 2017 issues at a later time. For now, though, send in your subs!

The Honey Mummy

honey_promoA mummy bound in honey.

An auction of archaic wonders.

An immortal link to the past.

Beneath the streets of Alexandria, Agent Cleo Barclay stumbled into a catacomb that changed her life. Her arms were taken, transfigured, and something remarkable was revealed–something that will stir an ancient life from the ashes of history.

A serpentine sarcophagus holds clues to Cleo’s past and future. She enlists Eleanor Folley and Virgil Mallory to collect the artifact at auction, to unravel its mysteries and her own. When the sarcophagus falls into the hands of an enigmatic Egyptologist, they find themselves participants in his diabolical pursuits.

Drawn to Alexandria by their friend–and the temptations of a newly discovered ring–Folley and Mallory will be challenged as never before.

LampLight Submission Changes

We are going to make some changes for submissions for 2016, starting now.

We will be reading from now until the end of January. From this we will pick stories for both the March and June issues.

LampLight will be closed for submissions 1 February, 2016.

When we open back up for Volume 5, we will have reading periods set up for the issues. This is just one of a few changes we will be making in 2016 to improve the way we operate, and improve response time.

Thank you, as always for reading, submitting and supporting LampLight!

An Update on June, 2015

June is our anniversary month (birthday month?) here at Apokrupha. We became official in June of 2012 after over a decade of dreaming, plotting and wanting.

We are behind in the June 2015 issue of LampLight. This is for a few reasons, but mostly, if I dare pull back the curtain some, it is because LampLight, for the most part, is a one editor operation.

This year, 2015, has seen some incredible moments for me already, and some stressful ones. A wedding, a honeymoon, new jobs, moving, all the while trying to keep a float of the submissions and stay on track with the issues. The March issue came out on time, but the June one has not.

There is still a June issue coming. For these reasons, we are behind, but I will not rush this issue just to get it out. I owe it to both the readers of LampLight and the writers who have submitted stories to put the same focus as I always would into this issue.

I ask for a little more patience from everyone.

Paul Anderson is reading for September, which will be out on time, thus re-setting us back to a normal schedule.

The June issue is coming, bringing the final part of Kelli Owen’s Wilted Lilies, a great featured writer, and more. The Volume 3 annual will follow shortly after, and September’s issue will be on time.

And this fall will have some more surprises in store.

This June we are 3 years old, here’s to many more June’s to follow.
