The Bookzone in Interzone 241 will feature the following:
Darkening Skies by Juliet E. McKenna (reviewed by Elaine Gallagher who will also interview Juliet)
Fever by Lauren DeStephano (reviewed by Jack Deighton)
A Dance with Dragons, volumes 1 & 2 by George R.R. Martin (reviewed by Peter Loftus)
The City’s Son by Tom Pollock (reviewed by Paul F. Cockburn)
Three Science Fiction Novellas by J-H Rosny aîné (reviewed by Paul Kincaid)
The Outcast Blade by Jon Courtenay Grimwood (reviewed by Iain Emsley)
Irenecon by Aidan Harte (reviewed by Lawrence Osborn)
The Sword and Sorcery Anthology edited by David G. Hartwell & Jacob Weisman (reviewed by Maureen Kincaid Speller)
Rocket Science edited by Ian Sales (reviewed by Ian Hunter)
Adrift on the Sea of Rains by Ian Sales (reviewed by Ian Hunter)
The sharp-eyed amongst you will have noticed that there are two books by Ian Sales in this month’s Bookzone. This is not because Ian is a good friend (that, in fact, is a very good reason for not reviewing both of them) but because another reviewer couldn’t manage to get a review of a different book to me on time. These things happen. Ian Hunter was originally supposed to roll both of his books into one review but kindly split it into two in order to fill the gap. Thus are magazines made. This particular magazine should be out in a week or so.
And here’s the result of the TTA Press Euro 2012 sweepstake while we’re at it. Again, these things happen.
