The Big Click

"The Big Click" is a new bi-monthly noir fiction magazine set to launch in March of 2012 and helmed by Nick Mamatas. Since there were no guidelines at the link I emailed Mr. Mamatas with a request for more information. Here's what he had to say:

"It'll be invitation-only for calendar year 2012, so that writers can read a few issues and get a sense of what we like. We will be publishing submission guidelines, but only opening for our 2013 issues.

It's a paying market: a flat rate of $100 for fiction. We prefer fiction of under 6000 words.

We're running two stories per issue, a column by Tom Piccirilli every issue, and other non-fiction. We'll be free on the web and also bundling the issues as low-priced ebooks for every e-reader. Our first issue will include fiction by Ken Bruen and an interview with Joe Lansdale. We also have stories lined up from Anonymous-9 and Jim Nisbet."

It looks like this is going to be a top notch site and I, for one, am looking forward to its first issue. And a big tip of the hat to Brian Lindenmuth for the link!

Just a note--the publisher and editor-in-chief is Jeremy Tolbert. I'm a mere editorial consultant.
