Anyone know anything about this?
Can't say it's not intriguing.

Since this is the newest thread and since the EV website seems to still point to an AOL email address for you, I though this would not be the worst way to contact you. I just recieved issue six in the mail and was wondering if you still have anything like the deal you were offereing last year for a subscription and back issues?

The AOL e-mail address is current for me and is the best way to contact me. I am currently considering some sort of special subscription offer with the release of the next issue, but it probably won't be one including back issues as I have very few copies of older issues. Issue #1 I have only a few left, issues #2 and #3 are sold out, issue #4 I have only a few left and a decent amount of #5. So offering back issues with new subscriptions would not net anyone complete runs of the zine.
Having said that, e-mail me separately and we can discuss this. Glad to hear the issue arrived.

It seems that being the Amazing Stories editor is a bit like being the captain of The Flying Dutchman.

Dave Gross got an offer to be a writer for the video game company Bioware, according to a post by John C. Bunnell on SFF.net.

Which seems to be a few levels down from cat herding.

OTOH it likely pays extremely well :-)

Would the position be something you would consider, Ellen? Good luck if so.
You were the first person I thought of when I wondered who would be best suited to rescue Amazing stories. I hope you or somebody equally qualified gets that position.
There seems to be a real opportunity to do something with the magazine, if the publisher opens it beyond the usual in house/gaming editorial staff.

But as long as I have my SCIFI.COM job I'm very happy.
Also, it entails a lot more than being "fiction editor" from the job description--and I wonder how much media stuff the editor is forced to buy.

Ah, I just paid the full price for EV. Got to take care of the good guys.

I wonder if it'll be successful this time. Looks like they only accept solicited fiction submissions.
It also looks like they're trying to compete with SF Chronicle or one of the multi-media sci-fi magazines. Instead of just stories it features movie reviews and behind the scenes pieces.
