Redstone Science Fiction
Entry updated 26 February 2021. Tagged: Publication.
US downloadable Online Magazine published and edited by Michael E Ray and Paul Clemmons, Decatur, Alabama; it appeared monthly from June 2010 to September 2012.
Although it was an SFWA qualifying market, meaning that it paid full professional rates, the magazine still looked basic and unprepossessing, with limited artwork; the stories by better known writers, such as Cory Doctorow and Ken MacLeod, were reprints. The new stories, though, were also of good quality with good ideas and would have benefited from better presentation. "Like a Hawk in its Gyre" (February 2011 #9) by Philip Brewer delivers a soft but effective punch in portraying a future that is not all it seems. "The Hubbard Continuum" (March 2011 #10) by Lavie Tidhar is a satisfyingly recursive Time Travel tale. Redstone had considerable potential and, with better production values, it could have become a major contender. It should not be confused with the Australian horror magazine, Redsine. [MA]
