Dear Brain Harvesters -
It’s with heavy hearts that we announce an end to our Brain Harvesting activities. It’s been a good run, but all good things must come to an end. The reasons for that end are myriad: one of us is departing for a trip around the world; one of us is entering the stretch run of a PhD program; and one of us is working not to murder the other two. These obligations, and others, make it impossible to give the site the attention it deserves, especially since we don’t show ads and have been funding operations out of our own pockets.
We know that getting your work out there can seem impossible if you’re not already known in the field of speculative fiction. It’s a vicious chicken-and-egg and it sucks, which is why in the three years BH has been live our mission has been to provide a venue for the kind of fiction we like, encourage new writers, and pay them. We feel pretty good about what we’ve accomplished in the course of that mission. We only wish we could have done it longer and better.
Thanks for reading us. We’ll see you around sometime.
