Ian Randal Strock

Role in the Artemis Project

Ian Randal Strock is the Director of Publications of Artemis Society International, a member of ASI's Board of Directors, and a member of ASI since 1994. He is also very involved in the commercial side of the project (see, editing Artemis Magazine and presiding over LRC Publications.

Ian is also the local contact for the as-yet unformed Artemis Society of Greater New York, and the head of the Tourism and Recreation Technical Committee. In addition, he proofreads and edits most of the pages that wind up in the Artemis Data Book.


Ian is the editor of Artemis Magazine and the president and publisher of its parent company, LRC Publications. Previously, Ian was the Associate Editor of Analog Science Fiction and Fact and Asimov's Science Fiction magazines for six years. In fact, that is how he first learned of the Artemis Project: Greg Bennett's article on The Artemis Project arrived in the Analog editorial offices in the summer of 1994. After proofreading the article, Ian was fascinated, and after meeting Greg at the 1994 World Science Fiction Convention in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Ian joined the Artemis Society International. He's been increasingly active ever since.

Ian served as the treasurer of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America for two terms. He won two readers' awards from Analog (for Best Short Story and Best Fact Article). His writing has appeared in many publications, including Analog, The New York Times, Absolute Magnitude, Science News, and The Sterling Web. Ian is a member of American Mensa. He has served two terms as President of Greater New York Mensa, as well as terms as Membership Officer, Editor, Regional Gathering (convention) Chairman, and Peggy Deane Scholarship Fund Vice Chairman.

Ian has spoken at scores of science fiction, Mensa, and astronomy conferences, and a Biolog of Ian appeared in the February 1996 issue of Analog. He received a BA in Political Science from Boston University, and currently lives in New York City. His personal web page is available at
