We have a “Submit to Inside Magic” button at the top of every page. It has been there since we first started Inside Magic in the late 1940s. The country was getting back to work, the big wars were over, neighborhoods were building, cars had big fins and transistors were just a pipe dream.
When the button was first installed, we received a couple of submissions – some were even magic related. But we haven’t heard much since.
We had our crack IT staff check things out and we learned tonight why they are called “crack” – but that is a different issue – and we learned why we haven’t seen any submissions. The staff had the submissions routed to an old website we no longer use: PocketFishermanKnock-Offs.com.
We hadn’t checked that site since the cease and desist letters from Ron Popeil’s blood-thirsty lawyers.
We are so sorry.
The server was filled with news releases, story suggestions, fully written essays and interview suggestions. Some of them were quite good but are now out of date.
If you have a story, a suggestion, a press release, essay or interview suggestion, please resubmit it for consideration by our previously under-worked editorial staff.
If you previously submitted your news and thought we ignored you, please accept our most sincere apologies. As a small but earnest magic news daily, we cannot afford to alienate a single reader and it was never our intention to give that impression.
Here is to new beginnings! Click the button above or this link.
