Mike S gives us an update on the HarperStudios experiment, with HarperCollins pulling the plug on it as of April 2010. This news leads to a speculative discussion on the future fate of large bookstores 5-10 years from now.

Maybe while the big box bookstores try to figure out what to do next, the smaller indie bookstores adapt and survive after all...

Interview: This week, Mike M and Summer chat with Michael Ray and Paul Clemmons about their new SF magazine, Redstone Science Fiction.

Redstone Science Fiction is an online market paying SFWA pro rates, focused on obtaining and presenting quality science fiction, as well as discussing the science and the technology with professionals working in those fields.

They are also running an Accessible Future Contest, with entries being accepted through August 15, 2010 (first prize is $300!)
