A New Volume

The editors are happy to announce, with the fulfillment of HFR‘s second volume, that HFR will be moving to a quarterly schedule of publishing* and will debut four issues each year. Due to this, submissions for issue 2.2 will close effective MAY 13, 2013; works submitted on and after this date will be considered for issue 3.1. We will continue to read submissions year-round.

The deadline for HFR 3.1 issue consideration is SEPTEMBER 15, 2013.

*The price of digital subscriptions will double to reflect the move. Current subscribers will be grandfathered-in and receive the extra issues at no additional cost.

The New Issue

Sam Chivers has graciously allowed us to use his artwork for HFR 2.2’s cover. This is “Saboteur” and will be its front. A different work by him will be the back of HFR 2.2 print editions.

HFR 2.2 (print)* is now available to preorder ($10) until July 1, 2013, when it will go on sale for $12. All preorders will receive the digital edition at no additional cost, and in the three formats that we make available: epub, mobi, and pdf.

*HFR 2.2 contributors include: Hugh Behm-Steinberg, Randall Brown, Dan Chelotti, Carol Guess, Trent England, Laura Ellen Scott, Anne Valente, and more.

Featured Chapbook Contest Each Quarter

Post-2.2, each issue of HFR will feature a chapbook. The method for determining this feature will be by contest.* The contest will alternate between fiction and poetry each issue.
