For six years, opening the GigaNotoSaurus submissions inbox and beginning the hunt for the next gem has been a highlight of my week. But it’s time to start a new adventure.

I’m so grateful to Ann Leckie for the opportunity to take the helm. It’s impossible to quantify how much I’ve learned in my time as editor. It’s been a pleasure working with such tremendous writers, and I look forward to seeing more of their stories in the future.  I’m also astounded by our wonderful readers, and will always be grateful for the recognition we received as a Hugo finalist. That was truly a highlight of my run.

I have the distinct joy to hand off the role of editor to Elora Gatts, recently of PodCastle. She is a keen and insightful reader and I can’t wait to read the stories she picks for the zine.

All the best,

Rashida J. Smith
