Here's today's second announcement:
I'm going with the title "Unofficial OSR" for the fanzine under The Grumpy Dwarf as the publisher, as feedback that I've gotten indicates that many folks would prefer a zine that covers the whole of the OSR.
So, with a spread starting with ACKS and Ambition & Avarice and running through Raggi's Weird Fantasy and everything in between, there is a lot of ground to cover.
That doesn't mean the end of Copper Droppings before it even starts. Copper Droppings will be it's own section, edited by +Michael Garcia and will be exclusively Swords & Wizardry - so yes, a zine within a zine. Think of the old Dragon issues with the Ares section.
I'll be aiming for Sept 1, 2013 for release - if we can hit earlier, great, but this timeline gives me 2 weeks of vacation a and 2 1/2 months to get things up and running.
Same payment plan for submissions - beer money and you keep the rights to your work ;)
submissions for Unofficial OSR should be sent to tenkarsDOTtavernATgmailDOTcom
submissions for Copper Droppings should be sent to socialATdeadratpublishingDOTcom
Cut off for Issue 1 submissions is August 3, 2013
(if time and ability permits, there may be a "Zero Issue" release -
