For the last year, Christy Crutchfield, Sarah Boyer, Brian Mihok, Ted Powers, and I have been working the journal together. About a month ago, we completed our most recent issue, DSM #17 and I sent it off to the Founder/Publisher. A week later, he gave me the bad news: Dark Sky was shutting down. In fact, he’d already shut it down. The press too. Bummer. So would we put up DSM #17 on a new site? Call it something different? All we knew was that this issue had to come out. It was too good. We were too excited about it. Then the editors of Barrelhouse stepped in and generously offered to host the issue on their site. The editors and contributors were unanimously in favor of this idea.
