Resistance is futile, but even so, it's best to go out kicking and screaming, don't you think?
So the Infinite Matrix will present a final fireworks of stories, essays, and columns, and then will cease publication. The site will stay up for a year or so, although older work may be removed as the rights run out.
Look what we've got: a final Runcible Ansible, with its accustomed bite, a fantastic story by Rudy Rucker, The Men in the Back Room at the Country Club, a shortshort by James Patrick Kelly, grafitti photos by A. Fluffy Bunny and original art by Seattle street artist roid.htm">Charles Whiteside, three more columns by Howard Waldrop, an essay on race, TV, and science fiction by Pam Noles, a story by Cory Doctorow and Charles Stross, an essay by William Gibson. There are even a few surprises to go up over the next few days.
More later. I'll be in touch.
