Debojit Dutta, Founder and Editor of Antiserious, 18 May 2018

A: Uncanny Magazine has been quite inspirational, seeing it develop from a Kickstarter project to a fully-fledged live publication.
I was inspired by DWB in the past - the magazine that started off as Dr Who Bulletin, then ended up as Dreamwatch, before being demised.

Mark Leichliter, Editor-in-chief of bioStories, 09 May 2018

A: Dusty: I would have to go with Scribner, the digital imprint from Simon and Schuster. They do ebooks right, and while their formatting designs and font choices aren't always the best, they are consistent and always done professionally. You can always tell when you open one of their ebooks, that is is theirs, and you can expect it to be well edited and clean.

Linda Dove, Faculty Editor of Moria, 20 April 2018

A: Quail Bell has a similarly all inclusive ethos which I deeply admire. They have a lot of diversity going on there, in every sense of the word. Occulum and Moonchild Magazine also have their hearts in the right place, and it shows.
