Dear Weightless Books Fireside Subscribers,
IF YOU FOLLOWED our last Kickstarter at all, you’ll know that it was a very close thing getting Issue Three funded. We knew there was going to be a point of Kickstarter fatigue with doing single issues that way, and we have hit it.
So Fireside is retooling with an eye on longer-term sustainability. We don’t have the details quite worked out yet, but we are planning something that will allow us to fund for a full year. Unfortunately, this plan involves not offering ebooks through Weightless Books any longer. I’m sorry I can’t offer more detail than that at the moment, but we aren’t ready to announce the plan quite yet. I can say that we will still be producing ebooks and there will be a subscription option.
Weightless Books will be refunding the unused potions of your subscription payments.
Please keep an eye on Firesidemag.com for the announcement about our plan. We’re going to be Kickstarting it in Feburary.
If you have any questions, concerns, or problems with the refund, please email me at [email protected]
Thanks, and sorry for the turmoil.

Fireside is a quarterly multigenre fiction and comics magazine that began publishing in spring 2012. Our aim is to publish story-driven fiction and comics by new and established writers, without regard to genre, and to pay writers and artists at a rate that helps them make a living producing creative work.
Each issue has four short stories and one comic.
