“We’re especially happy to bring Ian Watson on board to expand our horror category and further enrich our science fiction category,” commented Scott Pendergrast, co-publisher at Fictionwise.com. “And having cutting-edge stories from Damien Broderick, Australia's ‘dean of science fiction’ truly broadens the range of science fiction at Fictionwise.”
