I sort of assume everyone reading this knows all about Strange Horizons; but you may not know that this September was Strange Horizons’ tenth anniversary. Susan Marie Groppi writes more about the fund drive here, and you can follow fund drive updates here: I’m lacking inspiration to add much, but if you’ve enjoyed Strange Horizons in the past, please think about chipping in. Thanks.
