Flashback!First things first: we’d like to wish all of you a happy, healthy, and creative 2012.¬†We’re excited to announce Editor’s Eye, a new blog series that aims to highlight noteworthy work that might have slipped through the cracks of Fictionaut’s automated list of recommended stories.

Here’s how it works: every two weeks, a distinguished visiting editor will scour the site for lost treasures and pick a handful of outstanding stories posted on their watch. The identity of the editor will only be announced at the end of the two-week period, along with their selections. Our first guest editor is digging through the site as we speak, so watch this space for her favorite overlooked stories!

    a fine plan to unearth some gems!

    It’s a good idea because sometimes there’s a flood of new material and before people know it things they’ve published are already far down the list. It just happens that way because of the nature of the site. This sounds like a good fix.
