TangentOnline editor David Truesdale has announced several new features of the seventeen-year-old review magazine. Focusing the magazine’s attention on professionally paying short fiction markets (both on-line and in print), TangentOnline will also include columns on classic science fiction and fantasy and a second feature that focuses on pulp magazines of all genres. The relaunched zine includes articles on Michael Moorcock’s “History of the Runestaff” series, the X-Minus One adaptation of a Fritz Leiber story, a look at two stories by Murray Leinster, an article on collecting fantasy art by Robert Weinberg, and reviews of current magazines.
After a hiatus, Tangent Online has been relaunched by publisher Dave Truesdale. Tangent was founded in 1993 as a print-zine with the goal of reviewing every short story published in the science fiction field. Eventually the magazine moved on line, where it was successful for several years. Truesdale has now restarted the ‘zine with eleven reviewers and an initial focus on print short story venues, although he hopes to add webzines as he increases the number of reviewers on staff.
