Over the next few weeks The Crotchety Old Fan, Steve Davidson, will attend two Boston cons, Arisia (January 13-16) and Boskone (February 17-19), drumming up interest in the relaunch of Amazing Stories and campaigning for the Orlando in 2015 Worldcon bid.
If you’re there, drop by his table and say hi. You’ll find Steve near a big poster of this faux cover of the first issue:
The real first cover for the new Amazing Stories will be prepared by Hugo-winning artist Frank Wu.
Any plans to revive the Science Fiction League?
It’s good to bring back Amazing. It’s important to have the continuity of the first magazine of the field.
Will Frank Wu be using Frank R. Paul’s drawing tools, which were given him by Paul’s family, in creating the cover?
