Arc, a new magazine about the future has just been launched by the publishers of New Scientist.
Edited by Simon Ings, author of acclaimed genre-spanning novels The Weight of Numbers and Dead Water, Arc explores the endless vistas opened up by today’s science and technology and the possibilities these raise for the future.
The first issue features cutting-edge science fiction and forward-looking essays by some of the world’s most celebrated authors – Margaret Atwood, Stephen Baxter, M. John Harrison, China Miéville, Hannu Rajaniemi and Alastair Reynolds.
These are combined with columns by thinkers and practitioners from the worlds of books, design, gaming, film and more – Leigh Alexander, Simon Pummel, Paul Graham Raven, Adam Roberts and Bruce Sterling.
Now all it needs is a kick ass and more impressive SF-inspired cover!
