SFScope remains his main focus, but in his extra time, he'll be reading novels and collections for the new imprint.

Strock has already acquired his first book: a reprint collection by Lou Antonelli entitled Fantastic Texas. Contents of the book will include:

Prior to founding SFScope, Strock was the news editor of Science Fiction Chronicle. Before that he was the editor and publisher of Artemis Magazine, and the associate editor of Analog Science Fiction and Fact and Asimov's Science Fiction magazines. He is also a freelance editor, and on the editorial staff of Padwolf Publishing.
