Starlog ceases print publication; will remain on Web

Starlog, one of the longest-running print magazines devoted to the worlds of sci-fi and fantasy, has ceased publication after 33 years.
Official word of Starlog's demise came in a posting last week on the site, buried five paragraphs deep in an update informing readers that had relaunched in beta as part of a "massive digital initiative" and touting the fact that a "Digital store," to launch next month, will feature digital editions of the entire Starlog catalog.

"It is also at this time that we announce the temporary cessation of the current run of Starlog as a print magazine," the statement read. "After 33 years, and considering the present state of the economy, we feel [it's] time for a major revamp and will be temporarily discontinuing publication while the model and redesign of the magazine are contemplated and executed.

"The last print issue available for the time being is #374," it continued, "while issue #375 will be available exclusively as a digital edition on the network in the very near future."

Starlog debuted in 1976 as a quarterly magazine created by Kerry O'Quinn and Norman Jacobs. Jacobs eventually sold the company to the Creative Group, and the Brooklyn Co. bought Starlog and its horror-centric sister magazine Fangoria last year from the Creative Group, which had fallen into bankruptcy.

According to sources, Fangoria, which already has a strong Web presence, will remain a print entity. Left unanswered: the fates of longtime Starlog editor in chief David McDonnell and managing editor Allan Dart.
