Clocktower Books launched the web-only magazine Outside Speculative & Dark Fiction on April 15, 1998. Publishing continuously, we renamed it Deep Outside SFFH in 1999 and, in 2002, again renamed the magazine Far Sector SFFH. The magazine published nearly 70 stories by new writers, and by such greats as Pat York and Melanie Tem. We also published great articles and reviews still worth reading, and interviews with Ray Bradbury, Michael A. Stackpole, and other SFFH greats. The magazine closed its doors January 2007 after a historic and spectacular ten year run. You can still read the stories here and the articles and interviews at http://www.farsector.com.

The Paris Gun of 1918, and The Century Leading To It
Alone in the annals of history stands a super-weapon that terrorized Paris during Germany's last desperate campaign to win World War I. The Paris Gun was a marvel of technology. It required the work of astronomers, geographers, physicists, chemists, and other scientific experts to create a weapon that could fire on Paris from behind German lines--a range of 81 miles (130 kilometers).
