In a recent tweet, L.D. Lewis pointed out the necessity "mentorship within the short SFF field, wherein the mastheads of existing publications avail themselves to consult with people trying to start a new outlet." We at Strange Horizons acknowledge the value of this, and would like to take up this invitation. With around twenty years of institutional memory to call upon, we hope we can be of some use.

Our several departments - Fiction, Poetry, Reviews, Art, and Articles - have all expressed their availability for conversations about our experiences so far. So, if you are starting - or intending to start - a new outlet, and have any questions for anyone at the Zine, in the first instance, please write to co-ordinating editor Gautam Bhatia (gautam.strangehorizons@gmail.com), or DM him on Twitter (@gautambhatia88). If the questions pertain to the general running of the Zine, Gautam will be more than happy to engage on these issues; and to the extent they fall within the bailiwick of any specific department, he will connect you to the relevant resource person.

We look forward to the conversations, and to paying it forward, and we thank L.D. Lewis for bringing this up.

Know that the end / is something that you cannot escape here.
I wanted to ask francophone African speculative authors how they feel, how non-Black francophone African authors relate to the controversy, but also how they position themselves either as Afrofuturists or Africanfuturists, or as neither.
The new idea is to have the sixth sensors oversee the end of humanity.

In conclusion, I argue that SF fanzines in China mostly played a transitional role. That is, when no professional platforms were available to publish articles and stories, fanzines stepped in. Though most of those fanzines did not last very long, they played the important role of compiling and delivering information. The key reason why I identify those magazines as fanzines is because all the contributors joined out of their interest in SF and worked for free.
