Flying Island Press | Flagship

This 4th of July, celebrate our country's independence, and short story speculative fiction. Some friends of mine are starting a brand new short stories E-Zine. I had the awesome opportunity to create the cover art for their first issue, as well as the logo for the Science Fiction and Fantasy side called Flagship. The most exciting thing to me is that they're releasing the stories in every format you can think of, even audio! That's just cool. Here is a press release about their upcoming debut issue:

Enjoy Your Sci-fi and Fantasy How and Where You Want
Beginning July 4th, science fiction and fantasy fans will be given a new place where they can discover authors and stories they’ll be able to enjoy wherever they go. Flagship, the new e-zine by publisher Flying Island Press, will soon be releasing short stories every other month in formats for the Kindle, the iPad and iPhone, and other electronic readers.

Flying Island Press also recognizes the increasing popularity of podcasts and other forms of audio fiction. So, in addition to the e-zine, an audio version will be available to listen to on any MP3 player. Stories they release will be available both in text and in audio, allowing the consumer to choose their preferred version.

Zach Ricks, managing editor for Flagship, had this to say. “I wanted to hearken back to what some have called the Golden Age of Science Fiction.” It’s his hope that “FlagShip will be a place for optimistic, entertaining fiction.”

Each issue will cost $1.99 for the text version or the audio version or get both for just $2.99.

Issues will be available starting July 4th, 2010 at
