Hi, I'm Doug. I publish fiction magazines.

Hello everybody!

People have been telling me about this community for ages, and finally got around to checking it out today.

It seems like a great place to be. Very active and full of passion. I like that.

Anyway, my relation to the writing world is as a publisher. I publish a bunch of fiction magazines. One for every genre. They're monthly short story, poetry, and book review magazines that are published digitally on our website, Amazon, and elsewhere. You can Google my name or "eFiction" for more information.

I'm trying to save the short story from irrelevance with my magazines. I think technology is going to bring the short story back in a big way. I am passionate about the intersection of technology and story telling.

Look forward to meeting everybody and spending some time here talking about my favorite topic -- writing!
