Uncanny Magazine, Year 9: To Fifty ... and Beyond!This week, Patrick and Tracy welcome nine-time Hugo Award winner Lynne Marie Thomas, Publisher/Editor-in-Chief of Uncanny Magazine, Year 9: To Fifty … and Beyond!.

About Uncanny Magazine, Year 9: To Fifty … and Beyond!: Lynne M. Thomas & Michael Damian Thomas have run Kickstarters for the five-time Hugo Award-winning Uncanny Magazine Years One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, and Eight. We promised to bring you stunning cover art, passionate science fiction and fantasy fiction and poetry, gorgeous prose, and provocative nonfiction by writers from every conceivable background. Not to mention a fantastic award-winning podcast featuring exclusive content.

Through the hard work of our exceptional staff and contributors, Uncanny Magazine delivered on that promise every single year. Stories from Uncanny Magazine have been finalists or winners of Hugo, Nebula, Locus, and World Fantasy Awards!

The Space Unicorn Ranger Corps, our name for the Uncanny Magazine community, made it possible for our remarkable staff and contributors to create this wonderful art for all of our readers via the web or as eBooks. THANK YOU, SPACE UNICORNS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

If you’ve been looking for an opportunity to join or re-up with the Space Unicorn Ranger Corps, now’s your chance! We need your help to continue this mission for another year. This is your magazine, Space Unicorns! Let’s make Year Nine happen!

Though Uncanny continues to have multiple ways to support us, we still need the help of the Space Unicorn Kickstarter community to keep bringing you this amazing content.

YOUR support specifically makes it possible for us to make our fiction freely available on our website.

We have put together a fabulous lineup of solicited contributors for Year Nine!
