Back in February the founder of the magazine, Gordon Linzner was kind enough to grant me an interview. Since then I’ve had the pleasure of meeting him in person along with former publisher Hildy Silverman. Six months later with new insight I have more questions.
I think I can get Gordon to grant us another interview, but while I pursue that I’ll share the interview from last February as my Throw Back Thursday. In this interview Gordon discusses the roots of Space and Time, the struggles to balance publishing and personal writing career and his books.
My favorite quote from the interview is when I asked Gordon why he and a couple of high school students would launch a magazine. His answer is a perfect summation.
“Who knows why teenagers do what they do? Looking back, we were all outliers to some degree; it gave us something to do in place of ‘normal’ activities such as dating.”
