Home > My Fiction > ALTERNATIVE COORDINATES is gone


I’ve just discovered that the Alternative Coordinates webzine has apparently gone completely dead, taking my story “The Weight of Silence” along with it.  Effectively, that story is no longer in print.  Hopefully I’ll find a way to get it back into print sometime.

I guess online fiction magazines are still something of a gamble, even though they’re increasingly common these days.  But it’s always a shame when one of them goes under.  I’m grateful to Jeff Cochran and the staff of Alternative Coordinates for publishing one of my stories, even if it was only online for 10 months.  I hope they bounce back in some form.

    I’m sorry about this.

    Glad I found your post. I was searching for AE’s website because I was thinking of submitting a story.

    Just a suggestion, but you can always self-publish your story as an ebook. Length doesn’t really matter. There are many ways to do, and it’s easy, all you need to do is submit a DOC or RTF copy. Some sites don’t require a cover photo, but many do. Anyway, it’s an alternative. I’ll leave it up to you to decide if the one-year exclusive rights to your story applies or not.
