Future Fantasy Magazine editor-in-chief and Locus Magazine editor Arley Sorge invited me for a chat over at his At the Bar website. You can find it here.
Here’s a taste:
Arley: You are relaunching the magazine and getting it started with a Kickstarter. What are the biggest stressors or concerns around all of this?
Jason: Let’s talk about the elephant in the room—Covid-19. Running a zine is hard enough during economic prosperity, but dump an out-of-control pandemic into the mix and you’ve hit the difficulty red line!
Life goes on. We adjust, survive, and if possible, we continue to reach for our goals. Bringing back the zine after all my health problems is important to me mentally. It would be easy to crawl back into bed and give up, but that’s not in my nature.
Also, I hope the relaunch of Apex Magazine brings a tiny bit of positivity into their lives.
