OK, so you may have already heard that we're up for the Hugo for Best Fanzine! Journey Planet edited by James Bacon (also up for Best Fanzine for The Drink Tank AND Best Fan Writer), Chris Garcia (same as James!), Emma King and Helen Montgomery (for the Gender Parity issue!) and Pete Young for the Blade Runner issue! It was an amazing year for us, simply fantastic. If you didn't read the three issues we put out, The Blade Runner issue (http://efanzines.com/JourneyPlanet/JourneyPlanet12.pdf) is one of the most beautiful zines I've ever seen. Pete did the layout and it's spectacular. David Hartwell even said so when I gave him a copy at WorldCon! It's got writing from James, me, Pete, Graham Sleight, James Shields, C.A. Chicoine, James Mason, Tonya Adolfson, and many many more. There's issue 13 (http://efanzines.com/JourneyPlanet/JourneyPlanet13.pdf) which has something like 50 contributors including folks I'd been wishing to have words from, including Gail Carriger, Carrie Vaughn, Alisa Krasnostein, and John Picacio! The James Bond issue, the last one of 2012, has thoughts on Bond from Andy Trembley, Kevin Roche, James, Me, Lynda Rucker, J. Daniel Sawyer, Julie McMurray, Taral Wayne, Chris "Glug' Hensley, and Alissa McKersie! It's a lot of fun with an original Alan Beck cover!

Now, the first issue of Journey Planet of 2013 is up on our Weebly site, http://journeyplanet.weebly.com) and is about The Write Stuff, writing and so on, with Guest Editor Lynda Rucker. There's so Deep Cuts on this one! We've got us, the wonderful Gail Carriger, Robin Hobb, Seanan McGuire, Mike Carey, Lauren Beukes, Maura McHugh, Lynne Thomas, and many, many more! It's a lot of fun!

And the next issue is all about Philip K. Dick with Pete Young coming back on to join us! We're working with some great stuff, including a Tim Powers piece AND a couple of things that I'm pretty sure PKD himself would have enjoyed.

And again, Woohoo!
