It takes a village to raise a magazine. At Strange Horizons, our village is borderless and ever-changing.
Our gratitude to those who have moved on from the Zine in these past few months. We would like to thank Vanessa Rose Phin (Articles Editor and then E-i-C), Stephen Ira (Poetry Editor), Lulu Kadhim (Articles Editor), A. Katherine Black, Alexandra Hill, Chaitanya Murali, Ekpeki Oghenechovwe, Elinor Bonifant, Emory Noakes, George Tom Elavathingal, Kaitlin Beranek, Luke Tolvaj, and Roy Graham (First Readers). They have all made Strange Horizons what it is today, and we are all very grateful.
These departures have resulted in a change in the mast-head, and also - as we complete two decades in existence - some re-structuring of the zine. Keeping with our tendencies towards anarchic cooperation, Strange Horizons will no longer have an Editor-in-Chief, but a more explicitly (strange) horizontal structure; while the several departments have always been autonomous with respect to soliciting and editing the content that you read every week, the new masthead reflects that autonomy in a more express fashion.
Anarchism does, of course, need coordination. There will therefore be a co-ordinating editor (Gautam Bhatia), who will be responsible for coordinating between the departments, and publishing the magazine; an administrative editor (Romie Stott), who will handle contracts and finances; and in due course, we hope to bring on board editors responsible for communication and fund-raising.
We enter our third decade with gratitude for those who made the first two possible, and with hope for what the coming years will bring.
