Unfit Magazine Vol 3: Update

Following my recent post about the latest edition of Unfit magazine, there have been issues with Public Domain/Copyright.
As a result, the featured story from Philip K. Dick cannot be included, and the cover has been changed to show that.

An alternative story has been secured, from the talented Robert J. Sawyer. Here is some information about that writer.

Robert J. Sawyer has won fifty national and international awards for his fiction, most prominently the 1995 Nebula Award for his novel The Terminal Experiment; the 2003 Hugo Award for his novel Hominids, the first volume of his Neanderthal Parallax trilogy; and the 2006 John W. Campbell Memorial Award for his novel Mindscan. He has had two additional Nebula nominations, ten additional Hugo nominations, and four additional Campbell Memorial Award nominations.

He has published 21 novels, and his short fiction has appeared in Analog Science Fiction and Fact, Amazing Stories, On Spec, Nature, and numerous anthologies. According to the Locus Index to Science Fiction Awards, Robert J. Sawyer is the #1 all-time worldwide leader in number of award wins as a science-fiction or fantasy novelist (second place goes to China Miéville; Stephen King, Ursula K. LeGuin, and Connie Willis are tied for third place).

His books have appeared on the major top-ten national mainstream bestsellers’ lists in Canada, as published by The Globe and Mail newspaper and Maclean’s magazine, and they have reached number one on the bestsellers’ list published by Locus, the trade-journal of the SF field. Translated editions have appeared in Bulgarian, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, and Spanish, and he has won major SF awards in Canada, China, France, Japan, Spain, and the United States.

In 2002, Sawyer received Ryerson University’s Alumni Award of Distinction in honor of his international success as a science fiction writer (Sawyer graduated from Ryerson in 1982 with a Bachelor of Applied Arts in Radio and Television Arts). On June 2, 2007, Sawyer received an honorary doctorate (Doctor of Letters, honoris causa) from Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario.

As you can see, he is a worthy replacement indeed.

Here are some links to the revised magazine. They currently still show the previous cover.
