Again, they’re mostly for Interzone but a few are intended for reviews in other venues. We won’t have the space to feature all of them but that doesn’t mean that they’re not worthwhile books. Sometimes I wonder if it would be physically possible for one person to keep up with reading all of them, even assuming that they did little else; it would be fun to try, though.

This month’s Bookzone features the following titles: 

In the Mouth of the Whale by Paul McAuley (reviewed by Elaine Gallagher)

Intrusion by Ken MacLeod (reviewed by Paul F. Cockburn)

The Wild Girls by Ursula Le Guin (reviewed by Juliet E. McKenna)

Theme Planet by Andy Remic (reviewed by Stephen Theaker)

Babylon Steel by Gaie Sebold (reviewed by Lawrence Osborn)

I’ve reviewed Chris Beckett’s Dark Eden and have interviewed him for this issue. I could have filled the entire Bookzone with Chris; he’s a fascinating and gracious interviewee. He’s also turning into one of the most important SF novelists of the century.

This issue also has fiction from Steve Rasnic Tem, Jon Wallace, Suzanne Palmer, Jacob A. Boyd, Matthew Cook and Nigel Brown, artwork by Dave Senecal, Richard Wagner, Warwick Fraser-Coombe, Mark Pexton and Ben Baldwin, and non-fiction from David Langford, Nick Lowe and Tony Lee.

You can sample the fiction and artwork here. I normally try to post about the latest issue a week or two in advance but this issue may already be out. It’ll certainly appear in the next day or so.

Me? I’m going to try and find ways of stretching time. Or maybe I’ll just clone myself.
