Locus Magazine

Locus Magazine cover image

Locus is a monthly magazine that has been reporting on the science fiction and fantasy field since 1968. The magazine is published from Oakland, California and was co-founded by Charles N. Brown.

Each month you’ll get all the latest news from around the world on the science fiction, fantasy, and horror publishing field. There are stories about publishers, awards, and conferences, plus the regular columns; The Data File, People & Publishing (rights sold, books sold, books resold, books delivered, publishing news, promotions; people news and photos about vacations, weddings, and births). Each issue contains interviews with both well-known and up-and-coming writers, and from time to time editors and artists – you’ll even find an occasional column from Cory Doctorow.

On top of all that there are extensive reviews of new and upcoming books from notable SF critics such as Gary K. Wolfe, Faren Miller, Russell Letson, Paul Witcover, Adrienne Martini, and Carolyn Cushman.

Since mid-2011 Locus have been producing digital versions of their magazine, which are available as EPUB, PDF and Kindle format. The Locus website is not the most intuitive to navigate so I’m linking directly to the subscription and back issue pages.
