As SCIFI.COM gears up to expand with exciting new ventures utilizing the newest technology, it will discontinue SCI FICTION, the online publishing division of of the site, at the end of 2005.
In almost six years of groundbreaking online publishing, SCI FICTION and its editor, Ellen Datlow, had an unparalleled record of critical success, earning 10 major awards, including three Hugo Awards, four Nebula Awards and a World Fantasy Award.
We wish Ellen the best and look forward to seeing her future work.
There's a message from Ellen at the site too. I'm just stunned and sad.
Updated: Okay, three quick thoughts.
- This pretty much tells me that the Sci-Fi Channel cares nothing for science fiction.
- They have lost my viewership forever.
- If there's any justice, Ellen will have a great new gig instantly.
Back to being stunned and sad. (Letter writing campaign? Endless, brand-crushing interweb mockery of SciFi.com, anyone?)
