For his 263rd column, Steve revisits and rewrites one of his first “new” columns for Amazing, six years ago. If you missed it, now’s your chance to catch up!
Steve takes it easy this week with short reviews, award news and singing the blues. Okay, we’re kidding about the blues.
No fooling! Steve’s April 1 column is about the Canadian Aurora Award, plus Robert J. Sawyer’s brand-new book, “Quantum Night.” Is it a goodie? Read the column and find out! (The answer is an unqualified “Heck, yes!”)
Steve talks about himself (what an ego!) a new urban fantasy, and other stuff.
R. Graeme Cameron’s VCon conrep. NOT Steve Fahnestalk’s.
The characters dress as a ‘70s designer would have thought future people might dress, when they’re not dressing in actual ‘70s style…

Receiving zines in the mail used to be almost an everyday thing for me back in “The Day,” but sadly, it’s an unusual occurrence these days.
I found out just yesterday from the Internet Speculative Fiction Database that November 1979 marks the first fan column I ever published in Amazing magazine, the print version. My column was titled “Fans, Prose and Cons”—a somewhat obvious three-way pun. That means it’s been 34 years since I started writing for this magazine.
