How You Can Get the Write Stuff

by Rich Handley

A post from my old "Roots of the Swamp Thing" Web site, discussing China MiƩville's shelved Swamp Thing plans, was recently reprinted in issue #15 of a science fiction magazine called Journey Planet. Here's how the editors describe the publication, and how you can download a free copy:

Journey Planet is now on its 15th issue. Recently nominated for a Hugo, the editors theme issues from Nineteen Eighty Four to Bladerunner and engage guest editors to collaborate by theme. Its Web site archiving all the issues is here: http://journeyplanet.weebly.com.

The editors are James Bacon, an Irishman living in London, Chris Garcia, a museum curator living in California, and a cadre of guest editors from around the world. Horror writer Lynda E. Rucker is the latest guest editor, and the theme this issue, titled "The Write Stuff," looks at the profession of writing. It's available as a free PDF at http://efanzines.com/JourneyPlanet/JourneyPlanet15.pdf.

With contributions from Robin Hobb, Gail Carrigher, Lauren Beukes and Mike Carey, among others, it boasts considerable authority for a fanzine!
