Territories

Tagged: Publication

Scottish Amateur Magazine in A4 format, published and edited by Gary Gibson, Glasgow; four issues, [Spring] 1992 to Summer 1994. It called itself the "slipstream journal", the first magazine to outwardly do so, and though it sought to focus on Slipstream SF in its fiction – of which it only ran one or two stories per issue – most of its nonfiction features were rather more central to Genre SF, far more so than New Pathways or Ice River, which could have been called slipstream magazines had they not long preceded the term. By the fourth issue Territories had recognized the discrepancy and called itself "the sf and slipstream journal", yet that issue published arguably its most intriguing example of slipstream, "The Sight of God" (Summer 1994) by Phil Raines and Harvey Welles. Of most interest in the magazine were its articles and interviews, the latter including David Wingrove (#1), Ian McDonald (#2), Eric Brown (#2), Kim Stanley Robinson (#3) and Paul McAuley (#4). There were also features on Russell Hoban and Philip K Dick. The real British slipstream magazine started just as Territories finished, and that was The Third Alternative. [MA]
