Happy Result at Chinese Science Fiction Magazine Science Fiction World?

There's an update on the turmoil at Chinese SF magazine Science Fiction World. As reported in an earlier blog post, the whole staff of that magazine -- the world's largest science-fiction magazine -- had demanded that the magazine's leader leave. They were protesting his moves such as requiring the staff (and not professional freelancers) write the stories in the magazine and create the art, and replacing the magazine's stunning cover art with advertisements.

Science Fiction Blog reports that the leader in question was fired at the beginning of this month. The writer notes that such a unified act by the staff of resisting an authority is rare in China.
