Good news for procrastinators: the deadline for submissions to U.S. 1’s annual Summer Fiction issue on July 25 has been extended to Monday, June 18. After an astute reader pointed out that we’d printed two different deadlines in our ad for the issue, we realized that we had in fact published a third deadline, June 18, in our annual wall calendar last December. We’ll stick with that one. See ad, page 27.
