On the launch pad: Waylines

There’s a new online SF magazine coming to town. It’s called Waylines and it’s being put together by David Rees-Thomas and Darryl Knickrehm, both based in Hyogo, Japan.

With ten days of the campaign left, Waylines is about halfway to their bare bones financial target.

As publications of all kinds are under pressure in the current market place, opportunities for writers to publish with professional outlets are few, and Waylines hopes to offer competitive rates to contributors — but much depends on the fundraising drive.

Waylines will offer science fiction and speculative fiction and will also carry films from independent makers. There will be a site and a downloadable digital version of the magazine.

The launch is in January 2013 but we can see the provisional site here.

Co-founder Darryl has created the Waylines website and all graphics and illustration associated with it. He will also be contributing illustrations for upcoming stories. Darryl has long experience with the visual arts, including film making, and brings that expertise to Waylines to make it something a little different from other online magazines.

So that’s Waylines, online for SF.
