Hi folks, John Harlacher here – the new publisher of Weird Tales.
So here’s what’s going on:
The first Weird Tales issue by our company, Nth Dimension media, has gone to press, and will be in your mailboxes by the end of February. It’s edited by Ann VanderMeer, has art direction by Stephen H. Segal, and is quite beautiful. Here’s the cover.
Stephen worked with our artist, Dave Buchwald (known in the graphic design world for creating the covers of 2600 Magazine), to create this cover, and we think it represents a style we will use for the near future. It features the new/old logo, an intriguing symbol by Jeff Wong (www.JeffWong.com), and a stunning piece of art by Aurielien Police. The layout achieved what was most important to me – an emphasis on art, while keeping the writer in the forefront.
Did your subscription lapse? Well, you will not escape this issue. As a thank you to our passionate supporters, we are extending everyone’s subscription for TWO issues. So watch your mailbox, and let me know what you think.
I’d like to say a enormous thank you to Ann, Stephen, Paula and John and Carla from Wildeside for their help during this transition, and for taking this magazine as far as they did. I am very grateful that Ann is staying on as a contributing editor, and Stephen and John have made themselves available as consultants.
Now we must take the next step.
I’ll be responding to comments, so comment away, and check this space for more updates in the next few days.
