Future SF Going On Hiatus

Future SF is going on hiatus following the publication of the December 2022 issue, #17.

Editor Alex Shvartsman says,

Running a magazine, even a quarterly one, is an extremely labor- and time-intensive enterprise. I’ve been really struggling to keep up with its demands for a while now and do not feel I can continue to do a good-enough job while also keeping up with my day job, family, and any sort of writing responsibilities. (I have not written a word of fiction in about two months now, because every single moment I could spare toward creative endeavors was dedicated to either UFO9 or Future SF.) That’s why I have to step down and, as of yet, I haven’t found anyone crazy enough to take over the captain’s chair.

I’m deeply grateful to all of you for supporting the publication and helping me share stories from outside the Anglopshere with English language readers. I hope that in the future I will be able to participate in more projects like these. Until then, I will continue to translate fiction from Russian but let other publishers do the really hard work of producing and managing magazines.

The magazine launched in May 2018 with issue zero. Website future-sf.com will remain live so past issues may still be accessed.
