But the damage has surely been done?

I’ve also been reminded that Marvin Kaye was the first person to anthologise ‘Hamlet’s Father.’ (best to search for it) so I’m no longer surprised. Saddened. But no longer surprised. 

The only good thing is that I’ve come across Shimmer:

“Shimmer is a small press magazine.  Our tagline was ‘Speculative fiction for a miscreant world.’ It is a beautiful digest sized magazine and is currently art directed by the talented Sandro Castelli. It publishes stories that are dark, strange, funny or all three. I remain proud of Shimmer and still subscribe although it’s been years since I was directly involved.

When we started the magazine, we paid $5 per story with the goal that someday, someday we would pay pro rates.

That day is today.”

So something positive at least!
