    Finger crossed for Jessica who's going to hospital today.

    Meanwhile, our featured new release for the day is The Null, a superhero novella by KBoards' very own Vincent Trigili, so check it out.

    In other news, I'm going into hospital next week for surgery, hoping to be out by the end of the week. Cora is in sole possession of the Spec Fic showcase in the meantime!  :)

    I hope you're feeling better soon!!

    Oh my goodness, I just saw these mentioned here, although I knew they were up on the site. Thank you so much! The Speculative Fiction Showcase is absolutely awesome. :)

    Glad you like the Speculative Fiction Showcase, Marilyn. Jessica and I usually link new posts here, because not everybody checks out the blog regularly. Plus, not all authors we feature are KBoard members, for example the authors of yesterday's and today's featured new release are not KBoards members, as far as I know.

    Hi Cora, do you feature short stories? Or only longer works?

    And Jessica, I hope you're feeling better!

    Yes, we take speculative short stories.

    As for Jessica, her operation has been postponed because the hospital didn't have enough capacities, so she's back home now.

    How frustrating for her, to get all mentally prepped for something like that, and then have it fall through.

    Get well soon, Jessica!

    Thank you Andrei and everyone else for the kind comments. I'm lying low at the moment and treating it as an unofficial (writing) holiday.

    Have you got a new date for your op yet, Jessica? Horrible to get all geared up for it and then have it cancelled. Happens ALL the time here in the UK.

    Yes, the new date is for the 23rd February. I'm in the UK too, but it's my first time with the having an operation cancelled thing, though I've heard about it on the news.

    I'm very bad at waiting!

    Try the submission page, which is here and should have all the necessary info. If you have more questions, just ask here in this thread.

    We also have a featured new release today, namely Finding Faded Light by Jarrett Rush, so check it out.

    Today at the Speculative Fiction Showcase, we have guest post by Kyra Halland on "Fantasy and Western - Two genres made for each other". I guess all of you weird western writers (I know we have a few here) will get a kick out of this.
