  1. Not sure if this is a ‘revelation’ as it seems it was common knowledge which also makes me doubt “Asimov’s” will change the magazine name now. But you never know.

    I’m more curious if there will be other “Me Too” revelations regarding other SF authors of old.

    In comicdom DC’s Julius “Julie” Schwartz was notorious for carrying little DC badges with him at all times so that when he met girls he could give them the badge while insisting to pin it on himself. Again, this was known to all who worked with him.

    1. With the Lovecraft, John W. Campbell and Tiptree Awards all having been renamed recently for those authors’ transgressions, I would be surprised if there wasn’t some push for Asimov’s to do the same. I expect we’ll no longer see awards, magazines and the like named after people any more. They’re just too imperfect!
