One of my pet peeves is the traditional publishing industry “All Rights for the Remaining Balance of Eternity” contract, so when we launched the e-book version of Stupefying Stories, I included a “three years and out” self-destruct clause in the contract. To my surprise we’re still here three years later, and that self-destruct clause is now armed and ready to blow.
Therefore, this is your LAST CHANCE to buy Stupefying Stories 1.2 (a.k.a., the November 2011 issue) at the special end-of-contract-life price of $0.99! Because as of midnight Central Time on November 30, 2014, this one goes out of print, never to be re-released again!
And now, the catalog copy…
STUPEFYING STORIES 1.2
Released November 2011
No sooner was 1.1 released than STUPEFYING STORIES began growing very rapidly. This book contains more and longer stories than 1.1 and marks the first appearance in our pages of Aaron Bradford Starr, Clare Deming, Sarah Frost, and fan favorite Rebecca Roland, as well as another story from Anatoly Belilovsky and one of the most disturbing horror stories we’ve ever published, “The Oily,” by E. A. Black.
Which has led to considerable confusion ever since. Is STUPEFYING STORIES a science fiction magazine that sometimes publishes horror or a horror magazine that sometimes publishes science fiction? Somehow people fixated on “The Oily” and didn’t notice that this book also contains two of the funniest stories we’ve ever published, “First Impressions” and “Watch This!”
