RIP, Editorial Parrot


He actually took this picture himself. Touchbeak technology!

Cody, the Editorial Parrot for Candlemark & Gleam, passed away today at the age of approximately 35.

He was a good, good bird, and a hard judge of the slush pile. And yes, he did help with reading slush, with edits, and sometimes with adding lines to manuscripts by walking on the keyboard.

Please bear with us for a little while as we slow things down a touch in order to grieve for a bit.
