They received over five hundred submissions for their anthology, Of Sun and Sand, and have dutifully waded through that thick electronic stack, reading all the work blind.

Huffman and Salzano are vigorously seeking contributions for their next anthology, Insert Coin Here, which is themed to video games. Get more details of all the various goings-on at the site:
