Dear Asimov’s and Analog: Not to Complain, But…

The Web sites for Asimov’s and Analog have a “blogs” section that’s supposed to rotate between various science fiction blogs once a month but has had mine (and Jonathan Strahan’s) featured since November. It’s not that I don’t appreciate the attention, but five months is a sufficiently long time, and also, since both Asimov’s and Analog are owned by Dell Magazines, which sponsors the Campbell Awards, having my blog featured there (and not the blogs of the other five Campbell nominees) sends some potentially troublesome, albeit certainly inadvertant, messages.

Basically, this would be a good time for these sites to rotate their blogs. Might I suggest the blogs of Scott Westerfeld and Justine Larbalestier? Thanks.

  1. Not to slight Scott or Justine – I think they are wonderful writers. But they tend to be occasional bloggers at best. Perhaps they stuck with your blog because you’re constantly adding new entries…

  2. As much as I appreciate the attention, and as wonderful as your blog is, I can only second that. There are a lot of great blogs out there: go pay attention to them too.

  3. Thanks!

    They never asked me if they could use mine. Not that I minded, of course.

    They do seem to have updated their blogs. Interestingly, the blogs they have updated to seem to be discontinued (both point to newer blogs their authors are doing).
