God damn. Wasn’t expecting that:
Michael Moorcock’s New Worlds Magazine
The Directors of the Daves Dream Company – Dick Jude, David Hodson, David Tamlyn, Roger Gray and Felix Jude-West – have reached an agreement with Michael Moorcock to revive the seminal science fiction magazine New Worlds. Michael has kindly agreed to lend his name to the masthead of the magazine and to contribute editorial pieces. The magazine will appear in both electronic and traditional print on paper formats and be backed up by an extensive website that will feature exclusive editorial features free to all interested readers.
For anyone who’s missed my many and various rambles on the subject: NEW WORLDS, in the late 60s, was the most groundbreaking sf magazine of the last half of the 20th Century, if not one of the most groundbreaking magazines of any kind in the way it reshaped fiction and captured invention in the culture at large.
