We are bees

Fireside Magazine – Issue 1 cover - click to view full size

We’ve been busy bees here at Weightless—which immediately distracted me into wondering whether anyone had ever taken any bees into space: yes! (That’s not a very exciting video, maybe there’s better one somewhere. I’ll add that to the to do list.)

Last week we added 100+ from our friends at PM Press including books by Cory Doctorow, Ursula K. Le Guin (we have big Small Beer Press news about Le Guin TK soon), Kim Stanley Robinson, as well as books of Banksy’s art, a collection of Rad Dad, and much more. Now we even have some cookbooks!

And then today we added 100+ titles from Wildside Press as well as new books from Prime (lots of John Shirley and Robots and Witches) and Lethe Press (Point of Hopes: A Novel of Astreiant by Melissa Scott & Lisa A Barnett looks interesting).

Maybe the biggest news for many of our readers is the release of the first issue of Fireside Magazine. Fireside was a Kickstarter project and as a launch-day promotion, Wired.com’s Underwire blog is running Tobias’ story, Press Enter to Execute, for free today. It’s been fascinating to see a new magazine launched with such great support and I’m going to enjoy following the story of Fireside as well as reading the mag itself.

Check out Toby’s story, come back and subscribe: it’s a steal at only $8 for 4 issues.

Bzz. Bzz.
