This page presents a table of the science fiction, fantasy, and horror magazines covered by five “prolific review sites.” Its primary purposes are to help people find the coverage of the zines they want to read about and/or to help them see which zines are covered from multiple viewpoints.
This is a variant of Rocket Stack Rank‘s “Magazine Coverage by Reviewers.” There are two significant differences and a minor one. First, this lists all the magazines regularly covered by the reviewers. Second, the list of reviewers includes Tangent Online but not the editors of annuals who presumably read most everything but don’t maintain review sites (though Dozois was and Horton is among those who recommend stories for Locus). The minor difference is just that there’s no number column because this isn’t being done for “stack ranking” purposes.
The legend for the table is:
- FF = Featured Futures
- 1KYP = The 1000 Year Plan (derived from recommended sources in 2018)
- RSR = Rocket Stack Rank
- SFR = SFRevu (derived from what’s been covered since 2017)
- TO = Tangent Online
The SFWA column doesn’t indicate a reviewer but that the zine is an SFWA-qualified professional market and the magazines are split into two groups based on that.
As always, any corrections, suggestions, or other input is welcome.
