F & SF

No, I'm not in it this month... haven't written any short fiction for some time, as it happens, but way back when I started The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction was my break-in point.

I can't tell you how proud I was. F & SF was - is - one of the classic genre magazines from the Golden Age, and it continues to this day with the same class and character under editor/publisher Gordon Van Gelder.

The reason I bring it up now is that the mag's just launched an Annual Bundle Offer where you can buy a full year's worth of back issues at discount price. That's eleven issues plus the double anniversary issue for $24 plus shipping.

Don't you miss writing short fiction, Steve? I certainly miss reading your short stories anyway! Come on, when are you going to do us some new ones? :>)

They're all labours of love, done without thought of profit in the downtime between projects.I think my last one was probably EELS, for a double issue of POSTSCRIPTS magazine. There just hasn't been any such downtime for a while, and that's the only reason for the silence. I haven't abandoned them. Next time I get to one, I already know what the last line's going to be.
