Gordon Van Gelder: Fantasy & Science Fiction

F&SF Sept. 2008

F&SF Sept. 2008

GVG: The vast majority of stories we publish—probably more than 90% of them—come from over-the-transom submissions. I’ll commission stories occasionally, usually for a theme or to go with a cover illustration, but I find that over-the-transom submissions provide for us pretty reliably.

GVG: After we acquire a story, the typical process is that it goes through copyediting and then typesetting and proofreading. The authors review the manuscript in both stages, so by the time a story appears in print, it has been scoured and checked several times.

Excerpt from D. Blake Werts’ interview with Gordon Van Gelder, editor and publisher of Fantasy & Science Fiction in TDE1.

D. Blake Werts: After a while at The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, you also became publisher. How do the roles of editor and publisher differ and why were you compelled to also take on the role of publisher?

Gordon Van Gelder: To answer your second question first, I took on the role of publisher because the Fermans were looking to sell the magazine. Buying the magazine and becoming its publisher was the best way to make sure I’d be able to continue editing it.

As for how the editor and publisher roles differ, they’re obviously not too far apart, since Ed Ferman and I both managed to hold down the two roles for years. As I see it, the editor’s responsible for most of what goes between the covers while the publisher handles the rest. That is to say, the fiction and nonfiction are the editor’s responsibility, while the publisher handles advertising, promotion, production, and marketing.
