1. ASU’s online literary mag yawps for submissions for short fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and art for its 7th issue, which is scheduled to come out in May 2011. The guillotine (a term I argue should now replace the tired deadline) is March 31. For accessories, check out www.superstitionreview.com.

In 2008 there were only 5 books priced at $5 or below out of the Top 100 bestsellers of the year. In 2011 there are 48.
(Two nights ago someone offered to buy me a Kindle. I just couldn’t. But I am thinking on it.)
5. Today is President’s Day so go compartmentalize, punks.
