What people are saying about Neo-opsis Science Fiction Magazine:
Neo-opsis is the thinking man and woman's magazine.
Sandra Scholes (Reviewer) https://www.sfsite.com/00a/no406.htm
Congratulations on a great concept with Neo-opsis. With such a variety of contributing writers and ideas, it’s first-class.
Johanson's sense of humour, evident in both of his
columns, is also conspicuously present in his pick for the issue's first story,
"On The Road With Fiamong's Rule" by Sherry
D. Ramsey. If I had to put a label to that sense of humour, I'd call it
mainstream geek: two parts Jerry Lewis, one part Richard Feynman, a pinch of Firesign
Theater and a twist of aggressive oddity."

Neo-opsis is a great little magazine that should appeal to a broad range of tastes. The stock of serious fiction balanced with humorous nonfiction shows that the staff do not take themselves too seriously, but take the genre very seriously indeed.

Congratulations on a really fine job. It reads good, looks good, feels good, smells good, and for all I know tastes good as well.
