Good News

Finally have some good news. Troyce has been looking for another job since August when he was told he was being laid off from his department, and it's been incredibly stressful. Yesterday he got a formal offer letter from another department, and accepted it. It's a good job, though it's also a big pay cut, but we don't have to worry anymore about starving or losing our health insurance. YAY!

Other good news:

Ann VanderMeer has been promoted to editor in chief at Weird Tales Magazine and The Weird Tales masthead will be rounded out by two new, though very familiar, additions to the management team serving under VanderMeer. Campbell Award-winning author, artist, designer and performer Mary Robinette Kowal will serve as the magazine’s new art director. And two-time Stoker Award nonfiction winner Paula Guran, editor of the Pocket Juno fantasy imprint, will serve as Weird Tales’s new nonfiction editor.

Yay for the new job! :-)

And that's very cool that Ann was promoted to Editor-in-Chief.

Yay for the new job!

That's great news for Weird Tales, too.

Congrats. There's nothing as stressful as not having a job and wondering whether or not another is going to come around. The pay cut is unfortunate, but as the climate improves, hopefully there will be options open to leapfrog into new positions.

This is exactly what I wanted to say, as well.
Congratulations!

Hurrah and congratulations for starvation prevention! :D

I'm really glad to hear that!

Wahoo! Congrats to Troyce. I'm so relieved for you guys.

I'm so glad to hear it, and kudos to Troyce -- getting a new job is no easy feat, now that layoffs are everywhere. Hooray!

Yay for the job! I'm still sorry you guys have to take such a large pay cut, but, as they say, a bird in the hand...

Thanks! :) That's exactly what we thought, too.

Congratulations on Troyce and his job! Even with the pay cut, this is very good news that I'm very glad to hear.

Thanks! :) It was a huge relief.

Huzzah! P. and I definitely know what that's like, and it is not fun - so very glad to hear this good news!

oh thank goodness. What a relief.

Yay! Great news on both counts.

Congratulations to Troyce! Pay cuts are difficult, but money and insurance are good.

Thanks! Yeah, the insurance was definitely the thing we were most worried about.

Hurray for the new job!

So very glad to hear this!

congrats to troyce!!!

Thanks! Yeah, it's the waiting that really gets to you. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you tomorrow.

Pay cut sucks, but big "yay" for new job!

*does a little dance* Yaaaaaaaaay! Oh, I'm so glad to hear this! Even if it's not ideal, it's not bad. Having been laid off twice, I can imagine the relief y'all must be feeling. \o/ Congratulations, Troyce!

Thanks! Yes, it's such a huge relief.

It may be a big pay cut, but it's still better than nothing, right? Huzzah, and congratulations!
