If you’re reading this you probably already know that, together with my friend Paul and my gal CRL, I started Redstone Science Fiction, an online magazine, last winter. We published our first issue in June 2010.
We obsessively followed the guidelines of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America for the last year and yesterday heard from them that we have been accepted as a qualifying market. Stories sold to us count towards the writer becoming a member of the SFWA.
I am very excited by this, but truthfully I feel more relieved to simply have it done.
It’s been a big month for Redstone SF. In addition to the SFWA recognition:
- I had a blog post at the Clarion Blog about starting RSF which, I hope, will draw attention (and stories) from Clarion course graduates.
- I have an interview/chat coming out today at Grasping for the Wind that I did a while back about RSF.
- In July, we are reprinting a story by Cory Doctorow, co-editor of BoingBoing.
A good month.
