The Huffington Post has learned from a source inside Gawker Media that Gawker plans to launch a new science-fiction-themed title. The source said plans include poaching a writer from "Wired" at a salary of $7,000 a month (near the top of Gawker's salary range) to edit the new blog. According to the source, Gawker is even prepared to offer her contract guarantees, a rare Gawker perk. The Sci-Fi site will be Gawker's 15th title. Our source seems pretty leaky, so look for more Gawker gossip tomorrow on the HuffPost Media page.
