Edited by SF veterans William Sanders and Lawrence Watt-Evans, Helix, a quarterly speculative fiction webzine, is to debut June 15th 2006.
Helix is intended primarily as an outlet for stories that other editors might find too controversial, too unconventional, or simply too weird to risk publishing. The Helix staff said they are taking an unorthodox direction with its business model as well, refusing ads and declining subscriptions but putting out a virtual storyteller's bowl for donations.
Helix debuts with stories by Janis Ian, Rick Bowes, Robert Brown, Adam-Troy Castro, Beth Bernobich, William Sanders, and Bud Webster, as well as columns, editorials, and book reviews.
