Hot on the heels of my announcement of Lightspeed, the online science fiction magazine to be edited by John Joseph Adams, comes the news of Daybreak Magazine, edited by Jetse de Vries. The magazine is the online companion to the Shine anthology that de Vries is editing for Solaris Books. The stories featured on Daybreak Magazine will not appear in the print anthology. Both the magazine and the anthology will feature near-future, optimistic science fiction, as de Vries was sick of reading down-beat fiction.
Daybreak Magazine launches today, October 16, 2009, and will post a story every second Friday until the print edition is published. Shine is currently slated to appear in April 2010. De Vries hints that the online fiction may appear beyond that date.
