Blog in Exile: On Scalpel Magazine

Short form: Scalpel Magazine, an on-line reviewzine devoted to SF, seems to be dead, mere weeks after it launched.

Co-editor Jonathan McCalmont first talked about the problems, and then resigned. (He also explained the whole history in more detail at his own blog.)

Neth Space thinks it's dead.

Nick Mamatas, who started a deathwatch before the magazine even began, told us so.

The other co-editor of Scalpel, Gabe Chouinard (on whom most of the problems are being blamed) is incommunicado. (Jeff VanderMeer, on the other hand, is out there warning people not to trust Chouinard.)

Blog in Exile remains above the fray, as it must, but will continue to bring you updates on the situation as they happen.

I believe that Gabe has been in an accident ... which explains why we haven't heard from him.
