OK, so explain something that I've never managed to get a decent answer for - what's the line between a 'semiprozine' and a pro market?

According to the SFWA I think it's mostly how much they pay writers. Maybe it's also down to publication regularity?

I'm bemused that Interzone is classed as a semiprozine however it's determined, but OTOH I didn't spot another category for short fiction magazines so perhaps that's why.

<rant>It's ridiculous that Ansible still counts as a 'zine' of any sort... :x
It's a newsletter, at best!</rant>

The official rules for the Hugo Award in the semi-prozine category:

Quote:
3.3.10: Best Semiprozine. Any generally available non-professional publication devoted to science fiction or fantasy which by the close of the previous calendar year has published four (4) or more issues, at least one (1) of which appeared in the previous calendar year, and which in the previous calendar year met at least two (2) of the following criteria:

(1) had an average press run of at least one thousand (1000) copies per issue,

(2) paid its contributors and/or staff in other than copies of the publication,

(3) provided at least half the income of any one person,

(4) had at least fifteen percent (15%) of its total space occupied by advertising,

(5) announced itself to be a semiprozine.


The Hugo Awards do not -- as far as I can see -- give a definition of a 'pro' magazine (I vaguely recall a 7000 circulation minimum, but am not sure).

Two by Michael Flynn! I was very impressed with the original 'Eifelheim' novella in Analog so I'll try to get the paperback when its published.

“Dawn, and Sunset, and the Colours of the Earth” I'll watch out for that copy of Asimovs.

Hi Andy,
I'm going to Japan. Rooming with Pat Cadigan at the convention but traveling a bit with Eileen Gunn and John Berry before.

I live in Tokyo. Yokohama is about an hour away from my flat.

I'm seriously thinking about it, but I've never been to a con before, don't really know anyone in fandom, so not sure how to play it...

Seriously, all the more reason to go, Dan.
I'd not been to an SF con before Glasgow in 2005, but Worldcon is definitely a worthwhile event, even if it's once and never again.
