F&SF Goes Bimonthly

posted @ 1/05/2009 12:13:00 PM PT 

The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction is switching from a monthly to a bimonthly publishing schedule beginning with the April/May 2009 issue. Each installment will be 256 pages (16 pages more than current double-issues, nearly 100 pages more than current standard issues), except for a "jumbo" anniversary issue. Publisher and editor Gordon Van Gelder explains, "We've made the change because rising costs — especially postal costs — and the current economy put us in a position where we either had to raise our rates severely or cut back somewhere.... We'll lose a little more than 10% of our content this year, but we should be in a great position for the coming years."
