Ann VanderMeer announced today at the Weird Tales website (click the link to read) and on her husband Jeff VanderMeer’s blog that she’ll no longer be the magazine’s editor. Marvin Kaye, who is purchasing the magazine from Wildside Press, will also be taking the editorial helm.
IAF co-founder Ellen Kushner notes: “Under Ann’s leadership (with a lot of encouragement by IAF’s Stephen Segal), Weird Tales had become pretty much an Interstitial Fiction haven.”
Not to mention, it won a Hugo Award in 2009, the first in the magazine’s history. We wish Marvin luck, but we’re definitely sorry to see Ann leave. We’ll look forward, though, to her new ventures, including the VanderMeer’s upcoming anthology THE WEIRD.
