Ionisphere was originally published by the N3F, some decades ago, and has now been revived by its original Editor. John Thiel writes of his objectives as Editor and BuHead of the N3F Fan-Pro Coordinating Activity Bureau:
“It is my feeling that there should be a closer relationship between science fiction and fantasy fans and the writers and editors and artists who create this form of literature. The fans are visible supporters of writing of this kind, and have some interchange with the professionals by way of letter columns and now internet forums, and at the conventions as well, but this could always use improvement and especially now when the number of magazines has dwindled. Possibly contact between fans and pros could re-create an original enthusiasm which could be very useful today, when science fiction has had its influences on cultural life in general, but is not as successful as it once was on the home front.”
