To Writers and Artists
I am sad to report that Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show will be pulling up stakes
in June 2019. I've been a reader since the first issue, and on the staff since 2009. My kids have
grown up with the magazine in their lives, and I am fiercely proud of all that we've accomplished.
I am also very, very pleased with the state of science fiction and fantasy in general today. When
IGMS first rolled onto the scene, online magazines were few and far between. Now the main
mode of consumption of short SFF literature is online in one form or another (podcasts, e-issues,
webpages, etc). And the voices of SFF today are vibrant, strident, beckoning, beseeching,
screeching, awesome myriads. We have been a part of that polysymphonic wonder. We were one
of the first to tell our truest lies on the brave digital frontier.
Here are the nitty-gritty details of the closure:
The following issues will be published:
Feb/March (this issue) 2019
