Welcome NYRSF!

New York Review of Science Fiction #285 cover - click to view full sizeWe’re very happy to add The New York Review of Science Fiction—commonly known as NYRSF (“Newrsif”)—to Weightless. We’ve launched with a subscription (of course) and about a dozen back issues or so. I’m particularly pleased to be able to point readers to Chris N. Brown‘s essay “Science Fiction in the Edgelands” which is linked off  the April issue page. Chris passed through Massachusetts recently and it was excellent to catch up with what he’s been up to since co-editing Three Messages and a Warning.

Isn’t it lovely to see that the world is moving to DRM-free ebooks? It only makes sense that the book should be easy for the reader to read and move around between their reading devices.

Don’t forget that Fireside Magazine is running their second Kickstarter for issue 2 and beyond.

To celebrate Lee Thomas’s The German (congratulations Lee!) winning the Lambda Award, for a limited time Lethe Press has slashed the price of by 50%!

This week also brought new issues of:

  • Lightspeed (which seems to get bigger every month! Fiction by Kelsey Ann Barrett, John Langan, Maggie Clark, and Simon McCaffery; reprints by Eileen Gunn, George R. R. Martin, Seanan McGuire, and Tim Pratt; the second, final part of Jeffrey Ford’s The Cosmology of the Wider World; and excerpts from David Brin’s Existence and N. K. Jemisin’s The Killing Moon.)
  • Clarkesworld (stories by Aliette de Bodard, An Owomoyela, E. Catherine Tobler and an Another Word column by Daniel Abraham).
  • Apex (fiction by Brit Mandelo, Ian Nichols, and Geoff Ryman)
  • Locus June 2012 (#617) cover - click to view full sizeLocus (Featuring interviews with the excellent Genevieve Valentine and William F. Nolan as well as tons of news and reviews)

Last week we added quite a few Small Beer Press pre-orders—order them here and they will be delivered to you before any other electronic reading site!—including our amazing two-volume Selected Stories of Ursula K. Le Guin. Ms. Le Guin selected the stories and working with her has been fantastic. These books have been three or four years in the making and I can’t wait to see them in hardcover but they’re going to be excellent ebooks to have with you forever, too.

This post brought to you with a time-machined 1980s soundtrack by Fitz and the Tantrums.
