Interzone 249 is available right now. Depending on your subscription, it will have mailed out with Black Static 37 and Crimewave 12. They’re all spectacular magazines. Follow the links for more information on the contents.

This issue is a bit of a John Shirley special. As well as fiction from John, we have Andy Hedgecock interviewing him about  New Taboos amongst other things.

The Book Zone also has reviews of:

Exit Kingdom by Alden Bell (reviewed by Maureen Kincaid Speller)

Swords of Good Men by Snorri Kristjansson (reviewed by Ian Sales)

The first Interzone of 2013 will be here soon. Inside it you will find fiction from Jim Hawkins, Guy Haley, Helen Jackson, Lavie Tidhar, Tracie Welser and George Zebrowski, the regular nonfiction columns from David Langford, Tony Lee and Nick Lowe, and artwork from Warwick Fraser-Coombe, Richard Wagner, Martin Hanford and Jim Burns. Jim will also be providing all of this year’s covers. Follow the above link for more information and samples.

Any regular visitors to this blog will have noticed that there didn’t appear to be much going on in December. This was because I was literally flat on my back my back with a seasonal plague. Andy Cox had to step in and finish editing the Book Zone for me, for which I am profoundly grateful and not a little embarrassed.

This issue’s Book Zone features reviews of the following titles:

Throne of the Crescent Moon by Saladin Ahmed (reviewed and author interviewed by Ian Sales)

Nexus by Ramez Naam (reviewed by Matthew S. Dent)

Bedlam by Christopher Brookmyre (reviewed by Paul F. Cockburn)

Steampunk III: Steampunk Revolution edited by Ann VanderMeer (reviewed by Simon Marshall Jones)

Taken by Benedict Jacka (reviewed by Juliet E. McKenna)

Origin by J. T. Brannan (reviewed by Ian Hunter)

Helix Wars by Eric Brown (reviewed by Lawrence Osborn)

In Other Worlds by Margaret Atwood (reviewed by Barbara Melville)

The Corpse-Rat King by Lee Battersby (reviewed by Maureen Kincaid Speller)

The Creative Fire by Brenda Cooper (reviewed by me)

Jagannath by Karin Tidbeck (reviewed and author interviewed by Stephen Theaker)

It’s a particularly fine-looking issue even if I do say so myself. Hopefully I’ll have stopped coughing like a Romantic poet by the time it arrives.
