About Locus:

Locus is the news magazine and trade journal for chain SF and fantasy buyers, independent bookstore SF and fantasy buyers, and independent distributors as well as librarians, editors, authors, publishing personnel, and interested readers. The magazine has been covering the SF and fantasy fields for over 40 years, and has won the Hugo Award, science fiction's premier honor, 30 times. The magazine's website, which contains a sampling of magazine content as well as additional genre news, media reviews, the Roundtable Blog, indexes of reviews and interviews published, the science fiction awards database, and much much more, can be found at Information about advertising in the magazine can be found at or on the website at

Our Quarterly Forthcoming Book issues (March, June, September, and December) usually sell out, and are used by librarians, bookstores, publishers, and readers to keep abreast of forthcoming titles. Each contains publishing schedules from the major genre publishers – big houses to small presses – for the next nine months.

Our February issue summarizes the previous year, and includes a highly regarded annual Recommended Reading List. The August issue has the Locus Awards, voted on by our readers from the best of the previous year. The October and November issues cover the World SF Convention and are constant back issue favorites. All issues have a list of the new books that month, a list of recommended books and bestsellers, and interviews with leading authors.
