As many you of you have noticed, Octopus Magazine has been on hiatus recently, stuck on issue #14. The magazine, which was started in 2003 by myself and Tony Tost, and then which continued to be edited by myself and Mathias Svalina after issue #6, will now continue to be edited by Joseph Mains. From here on out, Mathias and I will continue to focus on operating Octopus Books, while being editorial assistants to Joseph. Issue #15, which is being reconstructed now, should be out at some point in the next month or so. If you’ve been expecting your work to be published in #15 for a while now, you’ll be hearing from us soon, with questions and apologies. Also, because it is August, and because Octopus Magazine accepts poems in the 8th month of the year, we’re now open for submissions for issue #16. Ok, here we go again.
