1) Both Kanye and Nicki Minaj's new albums came out today. These days, we consider this to be Hobart-related news.
2) Submissions for the print issue have closed. They will reopen soon after the new year, at which point we will be reading for our next theme issue: Hobart #13: LUCK.
3) We could use another reader or 4 -- if you are interested in helping out and reading some submissions for Hobart, shoot me an email (aaron (at) hobartpulp.com).
3a) Speaking of help, any web design wizards love Hobart and want to help with some redesigning/restructuring/etc.? We could maybe even pay you, though not a lot. But... something!
4) Minibook news: a second printing of Mary Miller's Big World (with a new, bonus story and an introduction by Chris Offutt) and Book 2 of Adam Novy's The Avian Gospels have been released this week and are currently in the mail!
