Title: Sci-Fi / Fantasy / Horror eZine: Regular reviewers wanted.
Post by: Troo on June 20, 2006, 12:45:59 PM
Moving on for our quest for writers, Pantechnicon is now looking for regular reviewers to join our long-term team.

You will be highly enthusiastic, an avid reader / watcher / player of your chosen genre(s), and able to commit to at least four 500-word reviews per calendar month. If you would like to review movie releases, a willingness to do so within the first week of general release is essential.

Please drop us a line at Editors@Pantechnicon.net if you are interested, and tell us what genre(s) and media you would like to review, and how often you can do so.

Thanks :)

Hi all! I decided to check this out and see what these people require in the way of a reviewer. After emailing them, I received an immediate response. They requested a 500 word review of my own choosing as an example of my style. The also wanted to know what genre and type (short story, novel, movie, etc.) I would prefer to review. I sent them a copy of a review I did for a story posted on American Zoetrope. They liked it and have put me on as one of their regular reviewers. One of my goals in becoming a published writer is to get as much exposure as possible. This can't hurt. Regards, Aelf ;D

what don't you get?

Also Troo, I e-mailed you a while ago about being a reviewer.  I'm getting one on the way, just been extremely busy lately for some reason and have been ill.  Promise you will get something soon though!  ^_^

Recieved safe and sound. I do know we had a hiccup with some DNS issue a little while back. That could have eaten your original email.

All sorted now!

Hello there i was just wondering whether there was any place for an article on David Gemmel. He was a great British Fantasy Author who died only a few weeks ago.He wrote many a good novel and I'm sure you have heard of him. Just a thought.

How peculiar. Nobody else has had problems with it. Still, if you can't get the PDF you can still access the content using the menus :)

Out of interest, what browser are you using?

Ta,

Yeah, I'm using Firefox too. Never mind. Site's going through a massive redesign this weekend - several people have advised me of useability issues. Give it a try on Monday and let me know how it goes :)

Ta!
