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…
