Issue Ten Stats
Here are the stats for issue ten:
Issue Ten (live from 9/15/05-12/14/05)
9/15-9/30: 23154 page views
10/1-10/31: 40187 page views
11/1-11/30: 36870 page views
12/1-12/14: 16111 page views
Total Issue 9: 116322 page views

Which is up by 8% over issue nine, so we're still moving in the right direction. Based on the bumps we've been getting these last two issues, it'll probably be another year or two before we break 200,000 page views per issue. That said, I'm pretty happy being over 100,000 for a literary magazine.

Per Contra
Miriam Kotzin and Bill Turner have just launched their new project, Per Contra. Definitely worth a looksee. In their first issue, there are meaty interviews with writers Randall Brown and Richard Burgin, and artist Al Gury. In addition to some fiction by Randall and Richard, there is also work by Kay Sexton and Gwendolyn Joyce Mintz. And an article about flash fiction by Miriam Kotzin, which includes snippets of interviews conducted with Robert Shapard and Edward Thomas (the Norton Flash and Sudden anthologies), Debi Orton (Flashquake), Mark Budman (Vestal Review), and li'l ol' me.

Great work, Miriam and Bill!
