While I'm sorry to see a well-paying short fiction market close up, I'm not surprised. I subscribed for the first year, but my subscription lapsed and I haven't been back since then because I'm not fond of reading on a computer screen. Sure, I browse websites and read news, and I spend all day (and most of my evenings) writing on one computer or another, but when it comes down to reading at length for pleasure, I prefer the printed page.

I have often thought these electronic-only publications are missing out on a key demographic, that being those of us who are technologically plugged in but still prefer a more traditional approach to reading. I realize the print magazine is dying a slow, painful death, but perhaps if they'd offered a print-on-demand option for those subscribers who wanted a print edition, I'd still be reading Universe -- and they'd still be publishing come next April.
