Bad News for Short SF Writers and Readers

Consistently one of the best sources for great SF short stories, not to mention one of the best-paying markets for writiers, SciFiction will say goodbye at the end of 2005. This is the message that appears on their site:

As SCIFI.COM gears up to expand with exciting new ventures utilizing the newest technology, it will discontinue SCI FICTION, the online publishing division of of the site, at the end of 2005.In almost six years of groundbreaking online publishing, SCI FICTION and its editor, Ellen Datlow, had an unparalleled record of critical success, earning 10 major awards, including three Hugo Awards, four Nebula Awards and a World Fantasy Award.We wish Ellen the best and look forward to seeing her future work.

Definitely not a good day for SF. In the meantime, cruise on over to SciFiction and read a story or two.
