Amazing Stories, the world's first SF magazine, is open to the public


The day is finally here guys. I have been talking about it and linking to the beta site, but now I am pleased to announce the reintroduction of the world's most recognizable science fiction magazine – AMAZING STORIES!

Following the completion of a successful Beta Test begun on January 2nd, 2013, Amazing Stories is now open to the public.  Fans of science fiction, fantasy, and horror are invited to join and encouraged to participate in helping to bring back a cherished icon of the field.

For the past several weeks nearly sixty fans, authors, artists, editors and bloggers have been producing articles on your favorite subjects – the literature of SF/F/H, its presentations in media such as television, film, poetry, literature, games, comics and much more. If you haven't got a chance to experience it yourself stop by my author page or read one of my articles. Tomorrow you can see my article on the break down of balkanized North Americas in literature.

All contents of Amazing Stories are free to the general public.  Membership is also free – and entitles members to participate in the discussion, share information and engage in many other familiar social networking activities. Membership also represents a stake in helping Amazing Stories return to publication.  The more members the site acquires, the faster Amazing Stories can become a paying market for short fiction...and it means yours truly finally gets a real paycheck for blogging so hurry up and join already.

Every genre fan now has a chance to help support the creation of a new market for the stories, artwork and articles they all love so much. To visit the site and obtain your free membership, go to Amazing Stories, and don't forget to invite your friends too!

O one more thing. All of the articles I have been posting about from development site should be off-line now. I will try to replace all of them but if I missed a few let me know at ahwupdate at gmail dot com.

What are you still here for? Go and read Amazing Stories. You heard me. Get out!
