US SEMIPROZINE, \#1 Winter 1987; ed Stephen P. Brown, Daniel Steffan, and published by the 'Til You Go Blind Cooperative to \#5; ed and published Brown alone from \#6; published from Washington DC to \#8, thereafter fromAsheville, North Carolina; thirteen issues to Spring 1994, theoretically 3 issues a year (actually highly irregular), maybe current.This intensely lively critical journal, professional in appearance, has at times been regarded as the house journal of CYBERPUNK; it prints its price in US dollars, pounds sterling and Japanese yen on the cover. It covers literature (mostly but not exclusively sf), music, technology, communications, or whatever is hot on the streets at a given moment, with an agreeable if irritating air of seeing itself as living on the cutting edge. Its various controversies have included a continuing savage attack on Orson Scott CARD. Contributors have included Paul Di Filippo, William GIBSON, Richard GRANT, Eileen Gunn, Elizabeth HAND, Richard KADREY, JohnKESSEL, Charles PLATT, Lucius SHEPARD and Bruce STERLING. As time went by in the 1990s, and the frequency of publication went down to around once a year, the editor's riding the surf of the future was compromised by the likelihood he would slop off the back of the wave. But the magazine remained very readable.
