AE is the title of a new on-line science fiction magazine scheduled to begin publication later this month. The magazine’s title is a tribute to Canadian SF author A.E. van Vogt and is a professional-paying market. Currently, the magazine is only accepting submissions from Canadian authors, although they plan to expand to international submissions in the future.
Publisher Warren Lapine has announced the closing of Realms of Fantasy. Lapine notes that the worsening economic climate has made continuing the magazine impossible at this time and has released any stories still held by the magazine. The December issue of the magazine will be placed on the Realms of Fantasy website for download. Lapine’s Tir Na Nog Press purchased the magazine in March 2009 after Sovereign Media announced the magazine’s closure in January of 2009.
A new webzine, Daily Science Fiction is scheduled to begin publication. Founded by Jonathan Laden and Michele Barasso, the site plans to e-mail a short story each day to its subscription list. Their current plan is for a free subscription list with stories ranging from 100 to 10,000 words. Laden attended Clarion and has published stories in Writers of the Future and Electric Velocipede.
