The time has come, I've decided, to move on; I'm handing the editor-in-chiefship of Strange Horizons over to our current associate editors, Jane Crowley and Kate Dollarhyde; I'm looking forward to re-encountering the magazine as a reader.
Our plan is to publish respectful English-language translations of speculative fiction stories from around the world alongside the originals, and to provide readers with a closer view of different traditions through podcasts, reviews, interviews, and articles.
The report published earlier this month by Fireside magazine, which found that of 2,039 original stories published by 63 SF magazines in 2015, only 38 were by black authors, indicates an unambiguous failure on the part of the SF field and, because we know our own numbers and they're in the spreadsheet accompanying the report, an unambiguous failure on the part of Strange Horizons.
Strange Horizons is a weekly magazine of and about speculative fiction. We publish fiction, poetry, reviews, essays, interviews, and art. For more information, see our about page. All material in Strange Horizons is copyrighted to the original authors and may not be reproduced without permission.
