David PringleDavid Pringle (born 1 March 1950) is a Scottish science fiction editor.
Pringle served as the editor of ''Foundation'', an academic journal, from 1980 through 1986, during which time he became one of the prime movers of the collective which founded ''Interzone'' in 1982. By 1988, he was the sole publisher and editor of ''Interzone'', a position he retained until he sold the magazine to Andy Cox in 2004. For two-and-a-half years, in 1991–1993, he also edited and published a magazine entitled ''Million: The Magazine About Popular Fiction''.
''Interzone'' was nominated several times for the Hugo award for best semiprozine, winning the award in 1995. In 2005, the Worldcon committee gave Pringle a Special Award for his work on ''Interzone''.
Pringle is a noted scholar of J. G. Ballard. He wrote the first short monograph on Ballard, ''Earth is the Alien Planet: J. G. Ballard's Four-Dimensional Nightmare'' (Borgo Press, 1979) and compiled ''J. G. Ballard: A Primary and Secondary Bibliography'' (G. K. Hall, 1984). He also published a newsletter, first titled ''News From The Sun'' then ''JGB News'', from 1981 until 1996.
He has also worked as a series editor for Games Workshop, in 1988-1991, commissioning shared world novels and short stories based on their ''Warhammer'' and ''Dark Future'' games.
Pringle has written several guides to science fiction, including ''Science Fiction: The 100 Best Novels'', ''The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction'', and ''Modern Fantasy: The 100 Best Novels''. His books are less American-oriented and more British-oriented than many similar works. He has also edited two large reference books, ''St James Guide to Fantasy Writers'' and ''St James Guide to Horror, Ghost and Gothic Writers''; plus a number of anthologies and illustrated coffee-table books about genre writing.
