Edmund Schubert, editor of INTERGALACTIC MEDICINE SHOW announced today that IGSM was officially moving to a quarterly schedule.

Our target date for publication of issue 5 is mid-June, a new issue will be published every three months after that, and I now know exactly how many stories I need and can proceed accordingly.

This is exciting news for me, since my first sale was made to Edmund at IGMS and my story, “When I Kissed the Learned Astronomer” will be appearing in issue 5.

For those who have never checked out IGSM, it is a great online science fiction magazine, and has been steadily accruing recognition. Tangent Online has reviewed every issue of IGMS that has appeared so far. It has been reviewed in Asimov’s Science Fiction. And most recently, 4 stories from IGMS were selected for the Million Writers Award for online short stories published in 2006.

If you are a science fiction fan, or a fan of good short fiction in general, you should check it out.
