I don’t have time to write up a magazine review (or a silly intro story) this week, but I thought I’d mention some news concerning two of the magazines which are competing for the top spot in my magazine quest.
Red Sun Magazine’s third issue is out. I haven’t read it yet, but it looks like it’s leaning towards horror:
Cirsova magazine’s fifth issue is out. I haven’t read this one yet, either. Most of the stories are set in Eldritch Earth, a setting established by Misha Burnett in his novelette “A Hill of Stars”, which I covered briefly in my review of Cirsova’s first issue.
Cirsova has also just been nominated for a Hugo Award. Not quite as big a deal as having two stories nominated for a Planetary Award, but it’s something.
I’ll try to get back to the magazine quest next week. I have nine more magazines to review before moving on to round two, and the list will get longer if I decide to add fantasy-only magazines (mags which exclude science fiction).
At this point in time, I’d trust a Planetary Award more than a Hugo 😉
There’s still time for you to cast a vote!
