Nina Allan’s The Silver Wind (Interzone 233) and Al Robertson’s Of Dawn (Interzone 235) can be downloaded for free. This is because they’ve both been shortlisted for the BSFA Awards, but read them even if you’re not entitled to vote. Both are excellent stories. It’s also great to see SF Mistressworks on the shortlists.
If you’re not voting for the BSFA Awards, you might consider voting for the best stories and artwork in the annual Interzone Readers’ Poll.
Of course, some people are voting on both sets of awards. It’s not an either/or situation.

The October Locus has Gardner Dozois reviewing Interzone 233 (he says that Nina Allan’s The Silver Wind is ‘brilliantly crafted and sensitively characterised’) and Interzone 234: ‘The best story here is Lavie Tidhar’s In the Season of the Mango Rains, which acts as a sort of a sampler of recent themes and locales from Tidhar’s work while also managing to deliver a strong autumnal kick without being, well, bleak.’ He also says that Jason Sanford’s Her Scientifiction, Far Future, Medieval Fantasy ‘works some nice changes on the theme here, and the story is fun to read’.
Rich Horton reviews Interzone 235 and lists Mercurio D. Rivera’s For Love’s Delirium Haunts the Fractured Mind in his recommended stories. He also reviews Jason Sanford’s collection, Never Never Stories, and picks When Thorns are the Tips of Trees (first published in Interzone 219) and The Ships, Like Clouds, Risen by Their Rain (first published in Interzone 217) as highlights.
