OMG WTF

SciFiction is gone.

If anyone needed more evidence that the SciFi Channel hates science fiction, you've got it now. I'm stunned, and on the road towards blind (and impotent) rage.

I'm sitting here reading the notice and trying to think of something to say other than, "Fuck."

But I got nothing.

Fuck.

When I told Alan last night, his response was, "This is the network that give us, Mansquito."

Sad as I am, I was sort of wondering when it might happen. The fiction site always seemed like a weird charity for the network; they never seemed to make much effort to capitalize off the readership or from the content. I assume the costs were being buried somewhere in the budget, but eventually some bean-counter was bound to find the ~$100k flowing out per year and wonder why they were paying it.

It's a shame; with a bit of effort and some minor modifications, they might have been able to make it self-supporting, or at least offset the cost such that they could keep it running. Instead, another market down the tubes.
