This has been in the works for a long time, and I’m quite excited to see Bryce Beattie’s Storyhack come to fruition. In the storied tradition of great magazines like Cirsova and Astounding Frontiers, Storyhack promotes making science fiction fun again, focusing on both genres: Action and Adventure.

It also features stories by some fantastic writers who are up and coming in the field. Jay Barnson, Julie Frost and John M. Olsen among them. A phenomenal line up.
