Default Issue 2 of The Oddville Press Available Now!


After a lot of work, some delays, and a heck of a team job, issue 2 of the The Oddville Press is now available for download. If you've subscribed to it, it should be in your mail inbox as we speak. If not, you can alternatively download it here: www.theoddvillepress.com/html/download.html

Remember, folks, this is a completely free magazine. And it's full of quality, "odd" stories that will thrill and amaze you. So, if you like reading, get yourself a copy today. If you don't like reading, get a copy anyway. Email it on to your friends, co-workers, etc ...

Thank you!

'Alternatively download', now there's a conundrum.

Looking nice, Daedelus! I really liked that first issue--plenty of good stuff. This one promises to be just as interesting. Odd. Whatever

Hope it gets lots of downloads again. Always good to support a decent market. Do let us know how it goes, if you can.

It was a big file and took nearly a year to download on my uber-slow computer, but it was absolutely worth it! It was so much fun to read all the stories (well... I haven't read them all yet, but some of them )

I love the kind of writing that was in the issue, so it was completely perfect for me! I'm definitely a fan now!

Oh, I say, well done!

Looks good - if not better - than the first!

Alternative to having it delivered by mail. Except the file's too big for our email system to handle, and too big for many people's mail servers, do subscribers get an email reminding them where to get it from.

Note to self: send that email!

BTW issue 1's had just short of 2,000 downloads so far, and still counting. I'll let you know how issue 2 goes.

I realised what the alternative meant; it's just the position of the word in the sentence that seems a bit odd. I will download this file. Now I will alternatively download this file. Alternatively, the adverb could have been placed at the beginning of the sentence. But nevermind.

Congratulations on the downloads! That's really wonderful to hear. For a long time, it seemed as though short stories were going out of fashion; few magazines were interested in publishing them. Here's wishing you continued good luck and twice as many downloads this issue.

Oh, so is the email just like a reminder?

With a link?

Yes, just a polite reminder with a link to the download page.
