California magazine, which chronicled everything from the rise and fall of a cosmic politician named Jerry Brown to the "Cosmic Code of Cuchi Cuchi" in its colorful but troublesome 15-year-history, announced Monday that it is ceasing publication. Publisher Perry Grayson said in a brief statement that California had fallen victim to weak advertising revenues and the recession. He declined further comment, but people close to the magazine said the announcement had been feared for several weeks.

December 9, 2007 | Ed Park, Ed Park's Astral Weeks column appears monthly at latimes.com/books.
IS it science fiction? Is it even speculative fiction? Andy Duncan's odd, mesmerizing short story "Unique Chicken Walks in Reverse" belongs on this list of my favorite 2007 books in this genre mainly because it kicks off "Eclipse One," a new anthology series edited by Jonathan Strahan (Night Shade). Five-year-old Mary O'Connor has a chicken that does just what Duncan's title says; it's a "frizzled" fowl (feathers growing on the inside) that she has named Jesus. Sacrilege or homage?
