I’m pleased to announce that I will be one of 50+ bloggers writing for the Amazing Stories blog. Amazing Stories, the world’s first science fiction magazine, opens for beta testing of phase 1 on Wednesday, 2 January 2013.
Amazing Stories was the world’s first science fiction magazine. Published by Hugo Gernsback, the father of science fiction, the magazine created the genre’s first home and was instrumental in helping to establish science fiction fandom – the fandom from which all other fandoms have evolved.
The magazine itself ceased publication in 2005; in 2008 the new publisher, Steve Davidson, discovered that the trademarks had lapsed and applied for them. The marks were finally granted in 2011.
Phase 1 introduces the social networking aspects of the site and the blog team, more than 50 authors, artists, collectors, editors, pod casters, designers and bloggers who will address 14 different subjects on a regular basis – SF, Fantasy & Horror literature, anime, gaming, film, television, the visual arts, audio works, the pulps, comics, fandom, science and publishing.
You’ll be able to catch my weekly blog posts on the topic of sci-fi TV, and occasionally film related posts too.
Those wishing to participate in the Beta Test should request an invite by emailing the publisher, Steve Davidson.
