Not being one to fawn all over myself, I waited all of two-and-half minutes before acquiescing to my ever-inflating ego which demanded to be soothed. Who am I to argue? I went to Barnes & Noble to pick up a copy, but alas, they didn’t have it out yet. (I did manage to get a blog post out of that visit, though.)
Tonight was the return trip and I was happy – OK, let’s be honest, giddy like a schoolgirl – to find that they had the June issue on the shelf sandwiched between two other magazines that inexplicably did not mention our blog. (Letters to their respective editors are in-progess.) I picked up a copy of the one that did mention us and introduced it to my scanner, the results of which you can see here. You may now commence with the accolades. 🙂
This issue will go next to my other vanity items that I keep in a secret, not-too-fresh-smelling shrine in my closet: the two issue of Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine where James Patrick Kelly noted SF Signal as both a candidate for the “Digital Hugo” and as one of the Top 40 sf blogs.
You would be surprised to learn a well-guarded, industry secret that SciFi Magazine is available with…alternate covers! Because we like to provide our readers with the full facts, both are shown here…
