Big Game is Sleeping

Hello all you internet wanderers! Just a message to let you know that Big Game is taking a snooze. Family/work issues and the publication of my own book have deprived me of the time needed to get anything at all done towards selecting and publishing full length books. I started the year full of vim and vigor toward the project, and then . . . just fizzled.

Apologies to all who submitted manuscripts during our April-June submission period, and even greater apologies if I haven't gotten back to you -- the response to the open submission announcement was far greater than I anticipated. I am figuring out what direction to take Big Game in now: ephemera and little tinyside-esque stuff? Chapbooks? Really marshal my resources and go for the full-length books? I am committed, at least, to digitizing as many of the tinysides as possible, though this too may be a long-range project, given the constraints on my time.

In the meantime, a word to the wise, or at least to those who don't like to see their time wasted, please don't send in any queries or ms! Big Game is NOT considering them, and they will be deleted. If there's a change to this policy, believe me, you'll see it here first.
