I've updated the Kaleidotrope website, with revised submission guidelines, subscription details, reviews, and the upcoming October issue's table of contents -- all on a brand new domain! All the old links should redirect automatically. Any thoughts?

I'd also like to note, while I'm at it, that subscription costs will be changing slightly in 2009. To reflect the rising cost of postage and printing -- as well as the increased number of pages in each issue -- a single copy will cost $5 instead of the current $4. (Copies mailed anywhere outside of North America will cost $8 instead of the current $6.50.) However, a 2-year subscription of four issues (currently priced at $16 and $25) will only cost $18 (or $28 international) -- a 10% discount off the combined price!

This will not affect current subscribers or anyone who subscribes to the zine between now and December 31, 2008. And it won't affect the current prices of earlier issues -- of which I still have several back issues, if you're interested in picking up a copy of your own.

I'll post reminders about the price changes again as we get closer to the end of the year. The thing to remember is this: you'll save money if you subscribe to the zine, and you'll save even more if you subscribe before the new prices take effect.

How can I increase my subscription base for Kaleidotrope? Where can I send copies of the zine for review (with at least some small chance of success)? Don’t assume I’m already doing something or that your idea won’t work. Any thoughts?
