Friend of AN, Cheryl Morgan, has launched Salon Futura, “a new and hopefully somewhat different magazine devoted to the discussion of science fiction, fantasy and other forms of speculative literature.”
Each month some of our regular team of contributors will bring you articles of interest. To save space here I have introduced them at the start of their pieces for this issue. In addition we are open to submissions for guest articles. The submission guidelines can be found here. Each issue will also contain a podcast discussion and one or two video interviews.
Salon Futura is available for free online. However, we do pay our contributors, and have business expenses. As usual with such ventures you can help us stay in business by donating, buying books through the links on this site, or by advertising.
The first issue (artwork by Coulthart, above) is out now, showcasing interviews with China Miéville and Lauren Beukes, fiction from Karen Burnham, and nifty stuff from a bunch of other people. Go take a look.

I love how all of these determined endeavors are popping up all over the place. New ideas, new ways to deliver story, new and exciting business models.
I'd pay a subscription fee for this and others that stick to the thing they've thrown out into the world. People shouldn't have to work for nothing. There has to be changes about how monetary things are handled. My fear is that the way to achieve that would homogenize the world too much, I sure don't want that. (have a little Soma my dear)
I've worked a lot for free but I had a job and I could afford to give my self to other needs as a way to show anyone that they, their work matters.
Well I'll keep thinking on that whilst you all are going on in the busyness of life.
I will be available for sales of things like this in October. I always try to set a little bit of my PFD aside for things that I didn't know about when I made my intial plan for it.
Keep on going and I'll help when I can.
Sly, I think Cheryl and the crew at Salon Futura will be delighted to hear that.
