Locus May 2013 (#628) cover This month in Locus there is a great section on THE SMALL & INDEPENDENT PRESS which includes many of our favorite publishers—many of which are also on Weightless (and some aren’t that we hope to add). It’s a fascinating cross section of a moment in publishing. Five years ago most of these publishers were around, except ChiZine (founded 2008) and Twelfth Planet Press and Cheeky Frawg (both circa 2011). How about five years from now? Who knows? (And if you do, drop me a line!) Check it out, it’s a fun piece. Links below go to books on the site.

(Here’s a full list of publishers on Weightless.)

I also wondered which of the Locus Award finalists we had on Weightless and came up with the following. Clarkesworld rules? 



  • Immersion”, Aliette de Bodard (Clarkesworld 6/12)
  • Mantis Wives”, Kij Johnson (Clarkesworld 8/12)

    Just started reading the section on small presses. Interesting.

    Now I understand better the relationship between Weightlessbooks and Small Beer Press.
