Beyond Centauri

Tagged: Publication

US quarterly Print Magazine of science fiction and fantasy, aimed at younger readers, one of a number of similar low-paying Semiprozines published by Sam's Dot Publishing, Cedar Rapids, Iowa and edited by Tyree Campbell. It has appeared on a regular quarterly schedule since July 2003. It is published in letter-size format and usually runs to 36 pages with large print and illustrations, and copious poetry, so the total wordage is low and the stories frequently short. Low production values on early issues have improved since 2007, with issues now perfect bound, but there is still an amateurish look to the artwork and presentation. Individual stories and poems, however, which tend to be written by a regular stable of contributors, which include Lou Antonelli, Greg Beatty, Terrie Leigh Relf, Stephen D Rogers, Daniel C Smith and Mikal Trimm, can be of high quality, bearing in mind the intended market, and have value in introducing new and young readers to the concepts of science fiction. Stories voted the best by readers each year are incorporated in the annual anthology Wondrous Web Worlds. [MA]
