Once again: If anyone would like their short story published in the summer issue of Explosive Runes, contact me, please.

Need some interested writers!

What kind of deadline are we working with Dirk? I was thinking of writing something up about Shadowrun to try and drum up more interest around these parts.

You could also try posting the first round of Wodine's PC Master class if you're looking for more content. I don't mind sharing my story from round one.

Now if I could just find the time for round two ~_~

Last call for some short stories for Explosive RUnes!

We'll take older works, archive works, etc... Doesn't have to be newly written just for the issue.

Is there any criteria to follow, limitations, all that good stuff?

Just read the past couple months of backlog on this and made myself sad. I literally didn't know any of this existed until a couple days ago.

@Dirk, I'll give a short story a crack and see if I can't dredge anything up from the ol' writing folder. Is there anything article-wise you're looking for?

RPGX friendly is the only criteria. Gotta be roughly PG 13 to R rated.

We just want to showcase your stuff, so if you have something you'd like to get a bit broader exposure, get it to me ASAP. we are laying out the next issue, and still have some room.

I doubt I can put anything together this quickly, but I might be able to for the next issue. When is that?

WE try to publish twice a year, so the next issue should be out around the Christmas Holidays.

Once again, a call goes out.. anyone want their short story published? Poem?

Explosive Runes is going to be publishing again in June, so if you can get me something before the end of April, it could see an audience in the summer issue!

@Admiral Dirk, is there a word count or page count limit to the short stories? What is the submission process itself?

When this competition was still running, Yamaneko, stories were recommended max 3000 words or so. If Dirk doesn't have other thoughts about length, that might be a decent goal?
