The Fix

November 14, 2009

The Fix is back online with a new address and look. Update your links to if you already use it.

If you don’t use it, and you enjoy or write short fiction, you’re definitely missing a trick.


Escape Pod 214

September 6, 2009

Eugie Foster’s Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest; Red Mask, Black Mask, Gentleman, Beast is now available as a free podcast. It has also been reprinted online in Apex volume III #II for those of you who can’t believe your ears, which also gets reviewed in The Fix by Kimberly Lundstrom.

It first appeared in Interzone 220.

Analog volume 129 #5

August 29, 2009

My review of the May Analog is now online at The Fix.

I’ve also just had a request to rewrite a short story, but I’ve still got two reviews to finish by Monday. And the latest novel is refusing to grow bigger without my help. Ack!

The Fix

April 1, 2009

My reviews of April’s Analog and Robert J Sawyer’s Wake have just been published together in The Fix.

Editor In Fix

March 29, 2009

Eugie Foster is resigning as editor of The Fix in order to spend more time with her fiction, and her place is being taken by Marshall Payne. I know Marshall is more than capable of doing a good job, but I’m going to miss working with Eugie. Still, if this means that we’ll get to see more of her stories then it will be a good thing.

If you have any short story publications that you wish to send to The Fix for review, please address them to Marshall. Details can be found on The Fix site.

Polluto 4 in Estonia

January 12, 2009


Polluto 4 is also available in Estonia, although the description for it comes from large chunks of my review of Polluto 3 in The Fix and so doesn’t apply to #4. But –  hey – I’m in #4. What more in the way of recommendation do you need?

However, if you don’t live in Estonia you can buy it directly from the publisher by clicking on the cover. I’m going to keep looking to see if I can find a country where it’s not available. I’m guessing Bhutan, maybe.

Interzone 220

December 14, 2008

Interzone 220 should be out on January 5th.  In the Bookzone this time we will have:

The Physiognomy/Memoranda/The Beyond by Jeffrey Ford (reviews and interview by Rick Kleffel)

The Gabble And Other Stories by Neal Asher (review by Tony Lee)

Agent To The Stars by John Scalzi (review by Juliet McKenna)

The Engine’s Child by Holly Phillips (review by Mike Cobley)

The Magic: The Story of a Film/Real-Time World/Ersatz Wines by Christopher Priest (reviews and career overview by Andy Hedgecock)

Doctor Who: The Writer’s Tale by Russell T. Davies & Benjamin Cook/The Torchwood Archives by Gary Russell/Doctor Who: Shining Darkness by Mark Michalowski/Doctor Who: The Doctor Trap by Simon Messingham/Doctor Who: Ghosts of India by Mark Morris/Torchwood: Pack Animals by Peter Anghelides/Torchwood: Skypoint by Phil Ford/Torchwood: Almost Perfect by James Goss (reviews by Paul F. Cockburn)

There are more reviews and commentary from Tony Lee (again), Nick Lowe and David Langford.

There’s also fiction from Jason Stoddard, Leah Bobet,  Gareth L. PowellEugie Foster, Rudy Rucker, and Neil Williamson.  I’m particularly looking forward to the stories from the last three for personal reasons.  As well as being my editor at The Fix, Eugie is a damned fine fantasy writer.  Neil is another member of the Glasgow SF Writers Circle and is far too talented for his own good.  And Rudy Rucker is Rudy Rucker.  The man is psychologically incapable of writing dull fiction.

From the cover inwards, this already feels like one of my favourite issues.
