Apparently the first issue of the new Amazing Stories is just hitting the stands in the US right now, and it features new fiction by Timothy Zahn, Bruce Sterling, Ray Vukcevich, and Gene Wolfe, which is pretty impressive.

Following a note on Neil’s journal, I note that each issue will feature ‘”1,000 Words,” in which we provide an author with a picture, and the author tells us which thousand words it’s worth.’ The instalment features an 800-word Gaiman introduction to a 200-word Harlan Ellison story. Or, a 200-word Ellison afterword to a 800-word Gaiman piece of non-fiction. Guess it all depends on your perspective.
