Anotherealm Lineup for 2006


It's gonna be a lot easier this year, I said. I only gotta pick 12 stories . . . one per month, I said. No more worrying about missing a masterpiece or elevating a lesser tale--just pick the 12 strongest stories that pass my desk I said.

And, hooo boy, was I ever wrong. I think this year's selection process was the toughest I've experienced so far. The vast majority of the stories I received this year were good--VERY good; so good, in fact, that I wish we could publish three, four, five times the baker's dozen plus one I've chosen. Unfortunately, anotherealm's pockets couldn't stand such a picking, so I've whittled and weeded a fine crop of prose to 14 (note: even I couldn't get it down to 12). Here they are in the order I plan them to appear:

Each one of these tales struck a chord with me. Some made me laugh, some made me think, all made me proud to publish them. Congratulations to the authors and encouragement to those who just missed the cut. Thanks to all for submitting and for making anotherealm "the best e-zine on the Web."
