Editorial: Welcome to Salon Futura

Hello, and welcome to the first issue of Salon Futura, a new and hopefully somewhat different magazine devoted to the discussion of science fiction, fantasy and other forms of speculative literature.

Each month some of our regular team of contributors will bring you articles of interest. To save space here I have introduced them at the start of their pieces for this issue. In addition we are open to submissions for guest articles. The submission guidelines can be found here. Each issue will also contain a podcast discussion and one or two video interviews.

This issue is going out at the beginning of September to coincide with the World Science Fiction Convention in Melbourne. However, we know that there are a lot of online magazines publishing around the first of the month, so over the next few months we will be drifting slowly towards the middle of the month, where we intend to come to rest.

Salon Futura is available for free online. However, we do pay our contributors, and have business expenses. As usual with such ventures you can help us stay in business by donating, buying books through the links on this site, or by advertising.
