Locus 592

May 21, 2010

Gardner Dozois reviews Interzone 226 in June’s Locus. He says that Jay Lake’s Human Error is probably the best story, although Mercurio D. Rivera’s In the Harsh Glow of Its Incandescent Beauty is “also good”, Rachel Swirsky’s Again and Again and Again is ” an incisive and and amusing study of Future Shock”, and Tyler Keevil’s Hibakusha is “intense and passionate”.


Interzone 226

Artwork by Warwick Fraser-Coombe.

Clear a wall! This year all six covers are by Fraser Warwick-Coombe and they will join together to form one giant piece of art. The interior is full colour throughout and is mind-blowingly stunning, with more artwork from Ben Baldwin, Mark Paxton, Jim Burns and Daniel Bristow-Bailey. Am I biased? Yeah – but it doesn’t mean that I’m wrong. There is fiction from Jason Sanford, Tyler Keevil, Mercurio D. Rivera, Jay Lake, Rachel Swirsky and Stephen Gaskell, and non-fiction from David Langford, Tony Lee and Nick Lowe. There’s also an index for all the stories published last year because it’s time for the readers’ poll. Go on – show your favourite authors some love.
