And here we are, at the end of Year 2. Thank you, again, to everyone who has made this possible, the Kickstarter backers, the new subscribers, the writers. Thank you to Galen Dara for the wonderful art that has brought every issue to life. Thank you to Pablo Defendini and Kirk Biglione for building our beautiful website. Thank you to our families and our friends. Thank you, most of all, to my wife, Lauren, without whose support, advice, and love Fireside wouldn't be possible.

We're going to take a month off to do a little work on the website, edit the stories we're buying from our submissions period in June, and get Year 3 in shape. We'll be back on Sept. 1, on a new schedule of publishing the first Monday of each month. Lilith Saintcrow's serial is already written, and man, are we looking forward to getting started on that.

But! In the meantime, we have Issue 15, the finale of Year 2. Our short story is Sun Tea by M. Bennardo, the tale of a minor league pitcher who has brewed up a surefire path into stardom. In flash fiction, we have Megan Grey's Missing, a haunting trip into a memory, and James Darrow's Reversal, where a man gets a chance to fix his last, fatal mistake. And, in Part 12 of The Forever Endeavor, Chuck Wendig ties off fate's threads for Dale, Walt, and even Dave ...

Thank you for reading.

Issue 14 is live!

We’re down to the final two issues of Year Two! Wow, that kind of went by fast. In such a good way.

We seem to have a theme again this month, totally by accident. Our three stories this month all slide beneath the earth in one way or another. Our short story is D.B. Starler’s Good Ghoul Gone Bad, where we meet Lola, an undead adventurer who needs some help from her ex on a most disagreeable task. It doesn’t help that she wants to kill him. Galen Dara’s art for the story is fantastic. (Spoiler alert: Tentacles!)

In flash fiction, David Alex Shepherd takes us to the Silver Hill Hotel, where cheaters definitely do not prosper. And in Guard Post by Paul O’Donohoe, we face a security system that’s spoiling for a fight.

And in Part Eleven of Chuck Wendig’s The Forever Endeavor, Dale and Walt are finally together — and they’re in deep shit.

We're opening to submissions June 1-30
