I know if you're reading this, you're mainly interested in news related to IGMS and I apologize for having so much business magazine stuff in here. It's just been consuming me to the point of not getting a much of anything else done. I spent most of today and yesterday on the phone with people from the Charlote Panthers (NFL) and the Charlotte Bobcats (NBA), trying to sort out some last details for the cover story for the next isue of NCCNM. It's titled "Pro Sports - The Jobs Behind The Players" (it's consideraby less glamorous than it sounds, and it don't sound terribly glamorous to me).
In IGMS-related news, I did iron out the last of the details on that story I mentioned the other day. It's called "Small Magics" and it's written by Alethea Kontis. I know you'll enjoy it. You'll find it in the next issue, which should be out within the next few weeks. Once I have all the details squared away with Executive Editor Card and Managing Editor Bellamy, I'll announce the next issue's complete line-up here.
BTW, in case you missed it, Doug Cohen (assistant editor over at Realms of Fantasy) interviewed me about my job at IGMS. The interview was posted on his blog (July 14th) and he tells me he's gotten a lot of positive feedback on it. You can find it at: http://slushmaster.livejournal.com/
