Weekly World News Shutting Down

weeklyworldnews

SFScope’s Ian Randal Strock reports that Bob Greenberger of the Weekly World News announced the magazine and website’s closure. Reports SFSCope: “No reason was given at press time, although reliable sources do tell us that management turned down at least one offer to buy the publication. The weekly supermarket tabloid—known as the home of “Bat Boy” and other less-than-probable stories—has long had staffing connections with the science fiction, fantasy, and horror fields.”
