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.
