Cool!  :)

"People commonly use the word 'procrastination' to describe what they do on the Internet. It seems to me too mild to describe what's happening as merely not-doing-work. We don't call it procrastination when someone gets drunk instead of working." - Paul Graham

I see that Pseudopod has 3 submissions editors to read slush, and I believe Ann Leckie does the same for Podcastle.  Does anyone read slush for EP or does everything go straight to Mur?  Is that one of the duties of the assistant to the regional manager?  Just curious.  :)

There are some volunteer slush monkeys around for EP, never fear.  Can't run a zine without slush monkeys of one form or another.

And in our case, the form seems to be slush felines.

The entirety of the slush pile going to one person would likely be some sort of OSHA violation.

I Twitter. I also occasionally blog on the Escape Pod blog, which if you're here you shouldn't have much trouble finding.

Ha, well it has been done before at other mags, so I didn't consider it entirely out of the question, though for it to work Mur would have to have some kind of time-warping powers to allow her to read all that slush AND record her writing podcast AND actually get fiction writing done AND other things in her life.  :P

Dumbledore was very clear that it was ONLY to be used for schoolwork.  She could get expelled for abusing it.

And we all know that Dumbledore's word is always followed, right?  Especially "Never go into the Dark Forest."   ::)

Although, I'm thinking that maybe all the students have time turners and they use them all the time.  That would explain why, in the more recent movies, they all look much older than they ought to.

A new audio producer, and new slush readers, for EP as well. I was thinking that once I have some free time, I'll try to make a new chart, but free time has definitely been short lately for me.

So is this a linear chain of command?  Do I, as submissions editor, have the power to overrule Eytanz the Moderator while being co-equal with Eytanz the Submissions Editor?  Or do Eytanz' roles combine so he gets like 1.5 ranks to pull on me?

(Also, it's cool to use my real name, if anyone cares.)

All these issues should be resolved via an epic jello wrestling match.

I just want to know what Podcastle's doing that they need an associative editor. (And resisting the joke about keeping her locked down, because lord knows what damage a free associative editor could do. Except now I really haven't resisted the joke. Arg.)
