It begins

We just lost one of the big-four US science fiction and fantasy magazines: Realms of Fantasy, edited by Shawna McCarthy, is closing down. SF Scope (which more and more these days is first with breaking news) has the scoop.

Meanwhile, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction recently switched from 11 issues a year to bimonthly -- but at least it has survived (and because the issues are fatter, only lost 10% of its total annual content). Analog and Asimov's resized, too, and that resulted in 10% reduction of content in each of their issues, as well.

...and DC Comics announced that MAD Magazine, Starting in April with issue 500, would publish quarterly instead of monthly.

Well, in an age when we've lost our collective sense of wonder and hope, when we've become pragmatic and even dogmatic, what use do we have for science fiction, a literature of hope, or for humour?
