Amazing Stories (TM) is Now Live

Hey, everyone.  The Amazing Stories (TM) blog is now live.  I've got several pieces up, with more to come on a weekly basis.  The link is Amazing Stories (TM) .  There's a lot of great stuff over there, and I don't mean the things I've posted.  There are posts about Robert E. Howard, fantasy, science fiction, writing short fiction, indie publishing, and tons more cool stuff.  So head over there and check it out.

What follows is the press release that should be on various media outlets today: 


Amazing Stories, the world's first science fiction magazine, is now open to the public.

Social Magazine Website Offers Nearly Sixty Writers and Social Networking For Fans!

The Experimenter Publishing Company is pleased to announce the  reintroduction of the world's most recognizable science fiction magazine – AMAZING STORIES!

Following the completion of a successful Beta Test begun on January 2nd, 2013, Amazing Stories is now open to the public.  Fans of science fiction, fantasy, and horror are invited to join and encouraged to participate in helping to bring back a cherished icon of the field.

For the past several weeks nearly sixty fans, authors, artists, editors and bloggers have been producing articles on your favorite subjects – the literature of SF/F/H, its presentations in media such as television, film, poetry, literature, games, comics and much more.

All contents of Amazing Stories are free to the general public. 

Membership is also free – and entitles members to participate in the discussion, share information and engage in many other familiar social networking activities.

Membership also represents a stake in helping Amazing Stories return to publication.  The more members the site acquires, the faster Amazing Stories can become a paying market for short fiction.

Every genre fan now has a chance to help support the creation of a new market for the stories, artwork and articles they all love so much.

To visit the site and obtain your free membership, go to AMAZING STORIES, and don't forget to invite your friends too!

  1. Wow. That blog already has a backlog! Maybe they should rewind and feed it out again now that beta is over?

    1. Congrats, again, though. I'll need to sift through it all sometime soon.

    2. Thank you. I'm having trouble keeping up with it myself. There was some discussion about whether to start over and repost everything from the beginning. I'm not high enough in the food chain to make those kind of decisions, but keeping everything was what they went with. The reasoning as I understood it was so that people would see how much cool stuff there was rather than one or two posts on the launch day.
