9 December 20099 December 2009 Main Posts so that was the subscriberthon that was Jeff Sparrow The inaugural Overland subscriberthon has now come and gone. After a somewhat shaky start, it proved a remarkable success, showcasing the snazzy new site and pulling in the subs. Thanks to everyone who subscribed or renewed; thanks, too, to all the sponsors, the bloggers, the commenters and everyone here at Overland HQ. Prizes will be drawn and announced over the next week, so stay tuned. Of course, even without subscriberthon, it’s always a good time to become a member of the Overland community. Most of the essays from the current edition are now online – click here to read Darshana Jayemanne on the art of video gaming, Lizzie O’Shea on opera in the occupied territories and Liz Thompson & Ben Rosenzweig on the market in education. The fiction, poetry and reviews will be up soon. Again, if you like what you see, don’t feel shy about getting that credit card out. Thanks again, everyone!
