Amazing has previously published numerous excerpts drawn from the works of its regular contributors; the site has now opened up to submissions from anyone.
Excerpts that are accepted for publications will be published on Sundays; where possible and appropriate, the excerpts may be accompanied by cover art and by an interview or bio of the submitting author.
The excerpt program has been designed to be of promotional benefit to authors seeking greater exposure of their works.
When this program opened, I was the first person to respond, and so I have the honor of leading off on Sunday, Jan. 12, with an excerpt from "Riders of the Red Shift", which is being published in a special Weird, Wild West edition of Stupefying Stories.
Amazing Stories has commissioned an illustration from art director Duncan Long, which is nifty!
