Somehow I Missed This The First Time

A New Non-Fiction SF/F E-Mag

With the death of IROSF in February, I lamented the loss of an interesting source of reviews and commentaries about SF/F/H. At least Lois Tilton was able to move her Reviews of Short Fiction quickly to LOCUSonline.

Now it seems in September that writer Cheryl Morgan has started up Salon Futura:
Hello, and welcome to the first issue of Salon Futura, a new and hopefully somewhat different magazine devoted to the discussion of science fiction, fantasy and other forms of speculative literature.

It's October, so there are two issues out now for you to peruse. The webzine is a mix of online print and audio podcast, and is also available in the EPUB format for e-readers and mobile devices. It is currently free to read, but they will take donations to keep going.

If Cheryl Morgan's name seems familiar in the non-fiction genre field, it may be because she's the non-fiction editor for Clarkesworld and ran the old Emerald City webzine, which a lot of people talked about.

I ran into Salon Futura from the most excellent current issue of Dave Langford's Ansible.

I've only looked at a few of the items, but I think this will be a welcome addition to those who wish to read commentary about our field. Check it out.
