Not an instant 'classic' SF novel, but a deserved win, I think.

I saw a breakdown of the voting results (on the Locus site?) and Interzone came second in the semipro catagory. Well done.

What is it that makes Interzone semipro as opposed to pro? Is it the bi-monthly schedule?

This is the WSFS definition:
Quote:
3.3.11: 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.

Doesn't look like they have a prozine category though.(?)
