The SFWA Bulletin will shortly be moving from stasis box to mail box. Issue 203 will be the first published since last May, ending a hiatus triggered by controversy over sexist art and articles in issues 199-202.
The next number is guest-edited by Tansy Rayner Roberts, winner of the 2013 Best Fan Writer Hugo, with a cover by Galen Dara, winner of the 2013 Best Fan Artist Hugo. (Perhaps I’m the only one who finds this ironic.)
Yet another red-haired babe decorates the cover, but this one is wrapped from crown to toe in Middle-Eastern silks. Anyway, popular wisdom holds you can’t tell a book by its cover – although that was probably just as true when Red Sonja was on it. Issue 203 features pieces by Sheila Finch, Richard Dansky, James Patrick Kelly, Cat Rambo, Ari Asercion, Michael Capobianco, Russell Davis, M.C.A. Hogarth, Nancy Holder and Erin Underwood, among many others, and interviews with Eileen Gunn, Adam Rakunas and 2013 Norton winner E.C. Myers
