  1. I have read the first few stories in “Chase” and wanted to thank you for publishing this book. These are the kind of stories I have been looking for! Little “slices of life” that express exactly how I think and feel. I’ll be keeping my eye on this website for future offerings.
    Merry Christmas!

  2. Thank you, Kathy! That makes it a very Merry Christmas for me and all the “Chase…” authors!

    Our next two projects are non-fiction compilation magazines: one of women writing on comics (J WOC), and the other of blog posts, essays, reviews, etc. (J Bloglandia), but there will be more gay fiction in the summer. Hopefully a novel and another collection of stories. So please keep an eye on us.

    Actually, your comment inspired me to be less lazy and put up an updates announcements list here:

    Thanks for getting in touch. All we “Chase and Other Stories” authors really appreciate that you like these stories enough to let us know.

    Happy new year and always all the best!


  3. Dear Ginger,
    re the Member Giveaway of Storylandia 1 on LibraryThing;
    received shipping notice on Wednesday
    received copy of book on Thursday
    read same on Thursday night, Friday night and this morning
    posted this review on LibraryThing this evening, as follows:

    Let me say first that I received this volume as a LibraryThing member giveaway, and it is the first issue of a periodical published, apparently, on an irregular basis, soliciting writings from aspiring authors. (Perhaps someday it will be a valuable collectible!)
    I was not familiar with any of the authors, but I found all the selections included here to be of at least passing interest, with the exception of “More Minimalist Fiction” (Lene Taylor) which struck me as a classroom exercise more than a serious attempt at writing.
    “Kittycat Riley’s Last Stand” (Kelly S. Taylor) qualifies as Sci-Fi, (the only story that does), and was genuinely entertaining, though the ending seemed a bit awkward. Chad Denton’s “I” (a story of personal growth with a twist), and Colleen Wylie’s “Sunday Mornings” (about a not-exactly-open gay relationship and the pitfalls of such) were both very well-written, and interesting, and I think these two authors will be heard from again. “Road Kill” (Lee Balan) dissociates rapidly from scene to scene, keeping the reader off-balance, as much falling through the story as reading through it, and shows much potential. “Not Quite a Prince” (Kathryn L. Ramage) takes place in an “alternate timeline” and hints at the usual props, but does not actually use them, it seems more like an excerpt from a longer work of fantasy. “Don’t Stop Thinkin’ About Tomorrow” IS an excerpt from a longer work of fiction (by Kitty Johnson) about ex-President Bill Clinton, which had me thinking where I would go with such a premise, and curious to read the entire book. “Practice” (Ann Valente) is a very short story, yet rather long-winded in setting the scene, much less so in illuminating its two characters. Nonetheless, she succeeds in creating an empathy for the too-small boy who is pained by the ridicule of his classmates.
    Ginger Mayerson (the editor) can take justifiable pride in this first issue. It reminds me of the New Directions issues I used to get from the City Bookstore many years ago, and THAT is a compliment. Storylandia #1 shows much promise, and has me looking forward to Issue #2.

    Thank you for your excellent issue! (I will be happy to review issue #2 as well, if you would send it to me)
