On killing publications with Scott Edelman

Posted: July 19, 2010 in Uncategorized

Scott Edelman and I have been working together for about 10 or 12 years, now. He’s been my editor at the print magazines Sci-Fi Universe and Science Fiction Age. It is in this capacity that Scott and I have helped to kill two major publications. And by that, I mean that under his editorship I have had features in the very last, final-nail-in-the-coffin issues of both Sci-Fi Universe and Science Fiction Age.

As I’ve mentioned here, last week SCI FI Wire breathed its last and became Blastr. SCI FI Wire has had thousands of posts over the course of its existence. Thousands. And of those thousands of posts, made under Scott’s editorship, who should have the very last byline that ever went out under the SCI FI Wire banner? Look at the screencap below.

That would be me.

Yes, I had a piece, a feature, the very next day posted within the very first hours of Blastr’s existence. But I just hope that with this track record, Scot and I don’t get gigs at Newsweek any time soon….
