Yes, it’s here! In fact, it’s been out for so long that Lois Tilton has already reviewed it over at Locus Online, and it’s a belter of a review. Good grief – it seems that I am permanently trying to play catch-up these days. What? You’re not interested in my excuses? They’re great ones, believe me.
Anyway, let’s see what’s in this issue’s Book Zone.
In the main feature, John Howard interviews Christopher Priest about The Adjacent and other things. And he also reviews it.
And there are also reviews of:
The Alteration by Kingsley Amis (reviewed by Duncan Lunan)
Love Minus Eighty by Will McIntosh (reviewed by Paul Kincaid)
Fearsome Journeys edited by Jonathan Strahan (reviewed by Jo L. Walton)
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon (reviewed by Ian Hunter)
God’s War by Kameron Hurley (reviewed by Maureen Kincaid Speller)
William Gibson by Gary Westfahl (reviewed by Paul Graham Raven)
Theatre of the Gods by M. Suddain (reviewed by Simon Marshall-Jones)
Be My Enemy by Ian McDonald (reviewed by Paul F. Cockburn)
Invocation by Jo L. Walton (reviewed by Peter Loftus)
World War Z: The Complete Edition by Max Brooks (audiobook reviewed by Stephen Theaker)
Ectopia by Martin Goodman (reviewed by Barbara Melville)
And we also have the third of Jonathan McCalmont’s Future Interrupted columns. I think it’s fair to say that I’m very, very satisfied with this Book Zone.
And did you know that you can get Interzone 248 as a PDF through Weightless Books? And older issues are available as well, of course.
Locus 631 is not yet live on the Locus website but should be within a couple of hours, and maybe even already is by the time you are reading this. Gardner Dozois reviews Interzone 246 in this issue. It also has the result of their latest reader survey which reveals that slightly more of them are reading Interzone than last year, which is nice.
According to the results of the annual poll, Interzone is also the fifth most popular magazine with Locus readers. Fifth equal, at any rate.
