Interzone 218

– artwork by Warwick Fraser-Coombe

The October Interzone was published last Thursday and should be speeding its way to your doormat or local retailer as you read this. Indeed, it may even have already arrived. This time around we have the following reviews:

The Last Reef and Other Stories by Gareth Powell (reviewed and interviewed by Paul Cockburn)
An Evil Guest by Gene Wolfe (reviewed by Mike Cobley)
The Kingdom Beyond The Waves by Stephen Hunt (reviewed by Lawrence Osborn)
Template by Matthew Hughes (reviewed by Ian Sales)
Year’s Best Fantasy 8 edited by David G. Hartwell & Kathryn Cramer (reviewed by Paul Kincaid)
The Painted Man by Peter Brett (reviewed by Iain Emsley)
Stalking the Unicorn & Stalking the Vampire by Mike Resnick (reviewed by Juliet McKenna)
Saturn’s Children by Charles Stross (reviewed and interviewed by Rick Kleffel)

A big thanks goes out to Paul Raven for his help and Andy Cox for making the review section look so damned good. The rest of the magazine’s not half bad either. It’s a bit of a Chris Beckett special and contains no less than three of his stories and an interview with him, plus more fiction from Daniel Akelrod & Lenny Royter, Hannu Rajaniemi, and Tim Lees. There are also film reviews from Nick Lowe, DVD reviews from Tony Lee, and news and stuff from David Langford.

Doesn’t that cover look wonderful?

    Actually this cover reminds me of one from the Pringle era. A specific one, mind. Damned if I can remember it tho.

    Isn’t the interwebs quite a thing? Might be issue 19 I was thinking of.

  4. neilwilliamson says:

    Which is to not say that I don’t like it. I do, I love it. Just that it snagged a twig in the overgrown thicket that is my memory.

    The same here, Neil, although it wasn’t issue 19 in particular; it was just the feel of the thing. It’s also got a sixties New Worlds thing going on as well. Very Ballardian. And it still manages to be bang up-to-date.
