Lightspeed Magazine, edited by John Joseph Adams, Stefan Rudnicki, Rich Horton, Wendy N. Wagner, and Christie Yant

Lightspeed Magazine is a 2015 Best Semiprozine Hugo nominee.

Lightspeed publishes a wide range of science fiction and fantasy fiction, as well as interviews, Q&As with their authors, and fiction podcasts. What I did not find is an archive allowing me to look at their 2014 issues, the relevant issues for this year's Hugos. The only thing I've been able to read that they published in 2014 is "The Day The World Turned Upside Down," by Thomas Olde Heuvelt, translated by Lia Belt. I've already expressed my opinion on that one, and you can read it, if you wish, by clicking the link.

It's very well presented visually, but with the Heuvelt story being the only thing from 2014 that's available to read, I'm not prepared to rate it very high.
