The Pirate Issue Now On Sale!

image Shimmer Magazine: The Pirate Issue, which was guest-edited by me, is now officially on sale!

In addition to all the bloodthirsty pirate action you would expect to find in an issue labeled "The Pirate Issue," the issue also features a story–"Captain Blood’s B00ty"–in which magic is real but every spell has been copyrighted by an RIAA-like organization. In the story, there is a pirate website that lets you download stuff anyway (like The Pirate Bay, but for magic). You can read the entire story online for free here.

You can also still read "The Sweet Realm" by Jill Snider Lum, which was released early in celebration of Talk Like a Pirate Day.

UPDATE: I also wanted to point out that The Pirate Issue will be available at World Fantasy, should anyone want to pick up a copy there.
