Have you been to Mindflights lately?

As you may now, I am an editor over at Mindflights Magazine, so I'd thought I'd give it a little plug here. At Mindflights we strive to publish fiction that is entertaining, enlightening, and uplifting. From our vision statement:

All flights have a destination. Mindflights' journeys are speculative—science fiction, fantasy—and our ultimate destination is truth.
We believe some truths are universal. Some truths are there for all persons to find through observation and pondering, with inquiry or with introspection, with stillness or with debate. Other truths must be sought, hunted, and they are more difficult to capture. Both can inspire stories and poems.

I have been with Double-Edged Publishing, first with The Sword Review and then with Mindflights for over four years. We have published many fabulous stories and poems during that time. Here are a few of my very favorites:

Singing Me Home by Jenny Schwartz

The Bone Setter by Suzette Saxton

Quite the Character by Joanna Mallory

Grubs by Steve Miller

And many others! So, come check out our current contents and browse through the archives for some great, family-friendly reads.

Mindflights is a non-profit organization and everyone on the staff is a volunteer, because we believe in what we can accomplish through uplifting speculative fiction. If you do like what you find on Mindflights, consider making a small donation to help us continue bringing you high quality work. It would be much appreciated!

We'd love to see your work, too. We are currently closed to submissions, but we'll be opening to subs again in October, so send us your best!

OOPS, had a typo! Nice post, Angie. Thanks for the information and for the links. I'll go by Mindflights in a few.

Just stopping by today to say ‘hi’, and I hope all is well with you. I will see you again soon.

Thanks for leaving the nice note on my blog. You know what helped me get over the fact that I wasn't chosen for the commercial??? The chocolate that you sent me! It's almost gone now.

Thank you!

I'm glad you liked the chocolate, Aubrie.
