After months of preparation, the final boarding call has been sounded. The contacts have started, the crew is being finalized, and the Airships will soon be climbing into the skies.
We had over forty submissions (thirteen of them in the last two days!). They came from as far away as Romania, and as close as my downtown.
We had really great pirates, really bad pirates, and a few airships with no pirates.
There was a submission with cat pirates and a submission with squirrel-like aliens.
I had the pleasure of accepting a writer's first sale.
We had stories set on other worlds, and stories where the airship was almost a world unto itself.
It was difficult indeed to narrow things down. But I think you will be pleased with the results. I know I am.
It's time to bring the last provisions aboard. I'm assigning the crew to their quarters, and then we head to the skies! We will be heading your way the end of next month, so prepare a berth for us.
And chocolate..,all pirates love chocolate!
