Ride – Short Fiction
Ride short fiction, not to be confused with The Ride magazine, has entered into the world of bike-related literature with a gathering of independent authors who have all contributed a piece centered around the bike highlighted with cover art by Taliah Lempert. The first issue was released in print and ebook just before the holiday season and they are already gearing up for issue #2.
Ride is currently calling for submissions, of which the deadline is April 30th, and encouragingly, the authors even get paid after hard costs are recouped. The publisher says not to look at past submissions for expectations, but teasers are offered on their blog if you want to get a feel for issue 1.
I’d like to get my hands on one of these, because honestly, sometimes reading gear reviews and ride recaps can get tedious. It’s good to be well read as much as well rode.
