I have referred several times on this blog to the excellent literary magazine, Cadenza. Sadly, I learned today that as the result of a dramatic decline in the number of subscribers, and the subsequent impact on the magazine’s finances, the 19th issue of Cadenza was unfortunately the final edition.
The demise of Cadenza is a sad loss, not only because it is one less market for writers but also - and more importantly - because it is yet another door closed to readers of quality short fiction. Hats off to Zoe King, the editor and publisher of Cadenza, for keeping the magazine going for as long as she did (even subsiding the cost herself of late). It will be sadly missed.
