And now, direct from the DAGSTINE LAND archives… A Blast from the Past…!
Today’s Blast from the Past (archived magazine title) features an almost decade old 8.5 x 11-sized publication, which I’m sure many writers from the 1990’s old school, or snail mail submitting generation of genre, will remember. Yep, I’m talking about the Writer’s Digest of scifi; ‘The Science Fiction & Fantasy Writer’s Digest’ of markets…
Lost Worlds was around from 1989 all the way up to the new millennium. A tri-annual to semi-annual, if I’m not mistaken; semi-annual in its final days. I first appeared in one of their last issues with a post-apocalyptic soft SF yarn, called: “My Future is Your Waste.”
-Lost Worlds, Vol. 10, No. #1… July 1999-
The Writer’s and Artist’s Science Fiction & Fantasy Forum Magazine
Authors to this issue included: Jennifer James, Walter L. Dinteman, Ray Johnson, Lisa J. Roberts, Shawn Madison, Ray Burrell, Thomas Haesche, and Lawrence Dagstine. Cover Art is entitled “Autumn Patrol”, and it was created by R. Wayt Smith.
Also, remember when high-quality printed genre magazines cost about $3.95? Nowadays they run between $7.00 and $12.00, with $8.00 to 10.00 being the average cover price.
Anyway, until my next blast from the past… 😉
