Forgotten Worlds Finishes

I'm sorry to once again be the bearer of bad tidings, but now it's the turn of Forgotten Worlds to anounce its closure.

The magazine launched optimisticaly as a paying, monthly publication in 2006, switching to quarterly in 2007. The final issue, number #9, was published in September last year, thus unfortunately adhering to the usual pattern for small press mags of not making it to double figures. They published a great selection of SF and fantasy, including three of my favourite stories from 2006:

The Last Moments of Rapture and Peak by Kirsten Lincoln - Issue #5

The Fallen Angels of Jude by Terry Bramlett - Issue #6

Seize the Lightning by Law Yihua - Issue #7

Another sad day in the world of science fiction.
