11th YEAR OF
THE NEWSPAPER OF THE SCIENCE FICTION FIELD
In its monthly issues, LOCUS covers the science fiction field as completely as possible. For professionals, there are up-
to-date market reports, news of editorial changes, stories on sales, and a column on writing by Algis Budrys. For readers
there are complete lists of all the books published each month, reviews, notes on sf in the media, news on forthcoming
books, a complete list of upcoming conventions, convention reports, contents of forthcoming anthologies and magazines, reader surveys, LOCUS Awards, and everything else of interest in the science fiction field.
Poul Anderson: "On principle I decline to subscribe to
fan magazines—but Locus is different: a unique source of
news which can often be important, and itself a thoroughly professional production."
Isaac Asimov: There is no way, for anyone fascinated by
science fiction, to get out of reading Locus. It is the Time
magazine and Walter Winchell of the field. It misses nothing, tells everything, keeps you abreast and in the swim,
and I wouldn't be without it.—And I won't be for I have
put down the money for a lifetime subscription."
Ben Bova: "Locus is the science fiction newsletter. No
one who is interested in the field should be without it."
Marion Zimmer Bradley: "Locus is where I look first for
shop talk—it « the real trade paper of science fiction.
There have been times when I have first heard through
Locus, (not my agent) that a new book of mine is on the
Algis Budrys: "Without a doubt, the single most valuable
periodical within the SF community; a labor of devotion,
a bulletin board, a monument."
Arthur Clarke: "Locus is the only periodical I read from
cover to cover—including adverts!"
Hal Clement: "Locus has always been the thing you needed if you wanted to know what was going on in science
Samuel R. Delany: "Dozens of professional SF writers
(including this one) and even more serious SF readers, on
both coasts, have collated, stapled, and folded Locus for
its biweekly mailings. Anyone who wants to know what
has happened in modern SF over the last decade must
turn to Locus, however critically, to find out."
Harlan Ellison: "For over a decade Locus has been the
market-report source, back-fence gossip, obituary and
accolade register of the science fiction world. It is the
Delphic yenta of SF-dom, and an awesome testament to
the high reportorial skills of Charlie and Dena Brown. It
has been a limitless source of what's-going-on for every
one in the genre, and now appears fated to be a goldmine
of material for historians. Lord, how academic attention
doth make pecksniffs of all us hobos."
Fritz Leiber: "Locus has been both a pioneering publication and a consistently high performer. This little magazine sets the standards for accuracy and scope in its reporting of the news in the science fiction and fantasy
publishing fields, and for level-headed interpretation of
that news. I read it regularly."
Michael Moorcock: "As one who is notorious for his dislike of the social aspects of the SF world, I can say fairly
that Locus is the only journal I know which retains a
clear-sighted and impartial perspective on it. It's the only
SF journal I see regularly or would wish to see regularly."
The New York Times: "Anyone whose interest in SF extends beyond reading it to wanting to read about it
should be aware of Locus."
Frederik Pohl: "Charlie Brown has been a close friend for
nearly twenty years, so anything I might say is suspect-
but Locus is the most important publication in science
Judy-Lynn del Rey: "Locus has become the Publishers
Weekly of science fiction. It's must reading for anyone
and everyone at all involved in the field."
Lester del Rey: "Locus is the one indispensable source of
information for every reader and writer of science fiction.
That's why I have a lifetime subscription."
Robert Silverberg: "Locus is indispensable."
Theodore Sturgeon: "Anyone who is remotely interested
in the many aspects of SF must-l said must—be, or get,
familiar with Locus."
The Wall Street Journal: ". . . the science fiction trade
magazine . . ."
Roger Zelazny: "For professionals and devotees alike,
Locus is the world's most important publication about
