Dust: Bite

Well... harumph! Another one bites the dust.

Noctem Aeternus Magazine is shutting down after one issue. Creator, Michael Knost, cites personal issues - new baby on the way, new house, not enough subscribers - as the reason for the closure.

And that's a shame. Then again, online magazines are popping up and closing down all the time, but I thought this one would be different; I'm sure Michael thought so too.

I found the stories curious in that two were about failure when battling against the odds, rather than success - or survival. It's a topic that is rarely explored in fiction.

At least we still have Ralan to find our markets and to let us know when another magazine has gone belly up.
