‘Future Science Fiction Digest’ is a new quarterly magazine featuring translations of international Science Fiction.

Stalking The Zombie by Mike Resnick (book review).

The Incarceration Of Captain Nebula by Mike Resnick (book review).

Some authors are reluctant to write short stories, either because they think they are no good at it and prefer the longer length of a novel or because they don’t find the time between those novels.
