  2. So that’s where Karalynn Lee’s “Unsilenced” ended up. It was originally slated to be in the Trafficking in Magic, Magicking in Traffic anthology, but when our first publisher went under, Lee decided to pull it rather than wait for us to find a new press. A very reasonable decision, considering that it took us until 2014 to get the book out. For me, the stories we lost are still floating in an invisible halo around the book. I especially miss “Unsilenced.”

  3. Sarah,

    I know what it’s like to lose a good story. I had an author pull a story just as we were going to press (after artwork had already been commissioned, the works.) It was a ridiculous time to pull a story, and it delayed the issue.

    I could have gone ahead… but with all the writers clamoring to be in Black Gate, it seemed rather stubborn to be publishing someone who didn’t want to be in it. I released the story, she kept the payment, and I found a replacement.

    The author implied she had found a more prestigious home for the story. I kept waiting for it to appear, but it never did. As far as I know, she remains completely unpublished. That story was her chance to be published. I’m sorry it didn’t work out.
