Reed Hits SF Milestone

Five-time Hugo Award-nominated author Robert Reed told SCI FI Wire that his upcoming short story "The Cure," which appears in the December 2005 issue of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, is the 50th story of his to grace the magazine's pages since he originally broke in with his debut sale in 1987. "I love F&SF," Reed said in an interview. "It was my first magazine when I was learning to be a writer. My first story was rejected by [former F&SF editor] Ed Ferman, as were my next 20 or 30. But I sold to Ed before any other magazine took me, and then I sold to [Kristine Kathryn Rusch], and now to Gordon [Van Gelder]. I'd like to think that when Ed was selling the magazine to Gordon, he said, 'And you get Reed along with my office chair.'"
