This is what Dark Horizons 54 looks like. It’s still the current issue, but Dark Horizons 55 is out later this month and then it won’t be. Of course, you have to join the British Fantasy Society to get your hands on one but I don’t make the rules. Yes, I am already aware that we live in a harsh, malevolent universe.

Official advance warning about the next Dark Horizons, for those who don’t believe me. And why should you?
The BFS generally only prints enough copies for its members and contributors so you’ll have to join here, unless swine flu decimates the numbers after it’s been printed. That will mean you’ll be able pick up a copy on eBay.
