Just got back from Madison and am slowly preparing to start blogging again. Terrible news from SciFi.com, with the announcement that they’ll be cancelling Ellen Datlow’s SciFiction. Over the past six years Ellen has developed it into one of the top three science fiction magazines in the world, a reliable source of some of the very best short fiction anywhere. Ellen is far too good an editor to be out of work for long, but it’s a real bodyblow for the field. I hope to hear good news about a major new project for her very soon.
