Hello there! It's been a while. Hope you are all OK. 2017 was rough to say the least. But i have managed to get through it relatively unscathed and even make a couple of issues of BNW.

And now it is gone and for 2018 i have something completely different!

On October 27th 2017 Stephen Nelson wrote the following status:

It was followed by an influx of responses. There were all sorts of comments - clever, casual, overly creative, intense, obvious, underwhelming and many-many others. Such kind of things happens on Facebook all the time but it rarely if ever gets out. I thought it would be a good idea to document this particular occasion.

That's it, folks! It is finally here. 

My original plan for BNW was simple. Make 9 issues with all-new authors and then churn out Issue 10 with every single contributor. Hundred or so contributors. After seeing the nice flow and steady growth of the magazine i thought it would be a good idea to make 10 issues with all-new contributors and then an ALL-STAR SPECIAL. Then i thought that putting out over a hundred posts in a single day will be a very long day. With elements of overkill. 

Around the same time interaction with disgruntled, scorned authors who didn't make the cut to the mag became tiring and i thought i need to slow things down a little. And then i've lost my job and found another one and the workload wasn't allowing me to fully concentrate on Brave New Word - so i decided to call it quits. And then i've lost that job and things got back to normal. Except for disgruntled authors - who were still writing their crap on a weekly basis. What is wrong with them? Anyway. Then i've found another job and it was very tiring and time consuming - i had no time to finish this issue. I even thought of putting a cheat easy issue first to buy some time. But now this bad job is gone too and i'm free to waste my time as i see fit. 

Without further due - i present to you BRAVE NEW WORD AUTUMN SPECIAL
