Issue 8. Irish science fiction, fantasy, horror small press magazine, edited by a consortium which includes John Kenny, Frank Ludlow, David Murphy (who stepped down in 2013) and Robert Neilson. At the start it did not pay for contributions, but began to make minor payments from issue no 23 (2001) with a more significant word rate from no 32 (2007). The story voted best in the issue received a bonus. None of this, though, is enough to qualify it as a semiprozine under US criteria but by all other perceptions it should be recognized as one. It has attracted a number of major writers including Esther M Friesner, Colin Greenland, Ian McDonald, Norman Spinrad, Brian Stableford, Jeff VanderMeer and Liz Williams.
''Irish low-paying magazine of sf, fantasy and horror fiction which appears irregularly; formerly two or three times per year, latterly once or twice; there was a three-year gap between issue no 47 in 2016 and no 48 in 2019. First issue, Summer 1993, but undated from no 4. Originally published by Tachyon Productions, Dublin, Eire, as an A5 booklet, the publisher became Albedo One Productions, Dublin, from no 12 (1996), and it switched to A4 format. Albedo One adopted full-colour covers from no 28 (2004) and production values have improved considerably since the start despite being unsupported by any arts or government funding. In 2003 the editors established Aeon Press as the book-publishing arm of Albedo One. This was followed in 2005 by the first Aeon Award with prize money of ?1000 for the winner of an annual award for the best original short story, which would also be published in Albedo One. An increasing number of stories from Albedo One have been selected for various annual Year's Best anthologies. It is a diverse and rewarding magazine, never afraid to explore new territory. Digital copies in PDF format have also been available for purchase through its website since no 25 (Summer 2002) and since Summer 2010 the website includes new fiction as Albedo 2.0 Fiction Showcase'' (Mike Ashley/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
