June updates: Solarcide turns two! Short story spotlights and a great give-away.

Hey, all. Some really fun things to write about in this post. The start of June saw the second anniversary of Solarcide’s launch, and we weren’t going to let that pass without some bonus content to post here. Also, we have a great signed book give-away lined up to add some jazz to the proceedings.


logo3In the two years this site has been live, we have featured dozens of great short stories. Shorter fiction is what we do best and we certainly hope to continue that trend in the future. So, for our birthday celebrations, we decided to whip a batch of short story related questions around a few authors and allies who have impressed us in the past with their work within the smaller word counts.


Over the next week or so we shall post up the resulting spotlight interviews. We begin today with Stephen Graham Jones, an author we have followed here at Solarcide for a while now, and who continues to impress us with his prolific publications. Stephen has written more short stories than we have had hot dinners, and is the perfect guest to kick off the spotlight feature.

Check out his interview here.

Check back later in the week for spotlight interviews with other awesome writers, including Richard Thomas and Nik Korpon.


Stephen Graham Jones didn’t just hang around to join in with our short story spotlight. He is also our newest Facebook giveaway prize author. Two weeks from now, one lucky follower of our Facebook page will win a signed copy of a SGJ novel. All you gotta do to be in with a chance of winning is ‘like’ our page. It couldn’t be easier!

Alternatively, if you don’t use Facebook, then follow the site as an email subscriber by clicking the widget on the right of our main page to still be in with a chance of winning.

June 18th, we shall announce the lucky subscriber.


And that, for now, is that. Check back in a few days for more short story spotlight interviews, with more great guests. Until then, rock out with SGJ, hit up the Facebook page for a chance to win that prize, and have a good time all round.

All the best, folks.
