Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

(If you don't celebrate Christmas, have a merry one anyway. The point of the whole thing isn't Christmas. The point of the whole thing is merry.

Re: New Issue Online

I'm sorry to say that the book previews in the Features section both have non-functioning links. Most of the Serials have the same problem. But all the short stories I checked worked just fine.

The filenames and/or directories in the links were screwed up one way or another (e.g., the filename had "FinnAgus" instead of "FinnEgus", "Morfil _..." instead of "Morfil_...", and 2012/12 instead of 2012/11 in one of the features. EVERYTHING WORKS NOW. Honest.
You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.

(Story Snippet)

In the desolate landscape after the Mayan Apocalypse, humanity was nearly wiped out by a Trilogy of Disasters foretold in the ancient texts. And so it came to pass that the holiday Marry Christmas evolved...

"Oh Sam, you just turned 18 this year! Who are you going to Marry this Christmas?"

"I dunno Fred, there's a sweet girl Jane who might become free since she's not getting along so well with her husband. He can have the kid and I'll Marry her this year."
