Vector 275

 

Vector 275 has been been published. It has my review of Hannu Rajaniemi’s The Fractal Prince and Dan Hartland’s review of The Eye With Which The Universe Beholds Itself. You can find a full list of the books reviewed here.

This issue has the Vector reviewers’ summation of 2013. I decided to skip this year as I would have had to discuss my involvement with the British Fantasy Awards, which didn’t seem fair on the other jurors or the shortlisted authors. And not mentioning them in my summation of 2013 would have been equally problematic.

There are also articles from David Hering, Molly Cobb, Laura Sneddon, Tony Jones, Stephen Baxter, Andy Sawyer and Paul Kincaid.

BSFA members will have found that their issue mailed out with BSFA Awards 2013. This volume contains the shortlisted short fiction from Nina Allan, Sofia Samatar, E.J. Swift and Tori Truslow; shortlisted non-fiction from Liz Bourke, John J. Johnston and Jeff VanderMeer; and artwork from Joey Hi-Fi, Kevin Tong and Richard Wagner.


BSFA Awards Shortlist 2013

The shortlist can be found here.


Focus 61

December 27, 2013

Focus 61 has been guest-edited by Ian Sales and is themed on the subject of self-publishing and small presses. It features an article on Whippleshield Books which is just about legible despite an over-ambitious layout. Other contributors (in a much more easy-to-read format) include Geoff Nelder, William King, Gary Gibson, Tony Ballantyne, Colin Tate, Keith Brooks, Vaughan Stanger, Darren Nash, Joyce Chng, R.B. Harkess, Berit Ellingsen, Terry Jackman, Jonathan McCalmont, Martin McGrath, Del Larkin-Smith and Donna Scott.

If you’re a member of the BSFA then this issue of Focus will have mailed out with Vector 274.

The latest mailing from the British Science Fiction Association contains Vector 271 and Focus 59.

The contents of Vector can be found here, except for the book review section which can be found here. I’ve reviewed Robert Jackson Bennet’s The Troupe for this issue.

The contents of Focus aren’t listed online so you might be interested to know that this issue is guest-edited by Keith Brooke and has articles by Kristine Kathyrn Rusch, Garry Kilworth, Michael Swanwick, Kim Lakin-Smith, Steven Savile, Linda Nagata, Lisa Tuttle, Jeff Noon and James Patrick Kelly. Pretty damned impressive, eh? Now go and see what’s in Vector. And then join the BSFA.
