Epic Thread

Nicky started another thread announcing his new official website for TP, which of course looks like shit.  It’s up to three pages, and still going strong.  This is epic.  It’s also going to be locked/snipped/deleted at some point, so I have screen shots.  For now, I’ll only post the first two after the cut.  If it makes it to page four, I’ll add page three, etc.

the submission call is up. read the guidelines carefully. Don’t submit until the 16th of February. The guidelines are extremely strict

Tabloid Purposes V: Cyberterrormachine 

Cyberterrormachine?  Oh god.  Is this going be a anthology about terrorizing people over the internet?

The concept of the story will open the gateway for a theological element in there. Ghosts in the mainframe, demons causing a computer virus . . .

Ah — it’s about all the things he wishes on others.

I want something that will compliment Chimeraworld series in some ways while at the same time do something that makes Tabloid Purposes Five stand out If you do an alternate history story it must be alternate 1990s starting and goes into future history up to 2027-2033. 

Future history, eh?  I think I can guess what 1990s alternate history is:  An Eye in Shadows.

Deadline: July 28, 2008

Submission begin date: Feb 13, 2008 (start writing stories now – this thing will fill fast like Tabloid Purposes II did.)
      Payment here: STARTING . $16 with a $10 minimum  (Sent to PAYPAL you must have a paypal account if you want to be paid.)

Where does he expect to get the funds to pay anyone? Nobody ever pays those phony Paypal invoices he sends.

Stocking Them Up or Sticking Them Up?

It seems that Mr. Pacione is finally able to send out one more long-owed contributor copy of TPIV.

Yes I will be doing one of those read posters for a couple libraries in the area here — one of them is going to do it the moment I get the more copies of Tabloid Purposes IV. I ordered up a few but one will be sent to a contributor tomorrow afternoon.

Yes, folks — one copy! I think he should get all his contributor copies out before stockpiling a stash for himself.

I am going to be stocking them up the moment I get this debit card fixed up. The whole thing that those bastards who repeatedly prank called my house really fucked things up in the sense with the bank now with the address needs to be changed over from the old apartment address and now the phone number is fouled up.

I’ve got news for Mr. Pacione. Regardless of whether the prank calls occurred, notifying his bank of a change of address and phone number is his responsibility.
