Locus 598

Gardner Dozois reviews Interzone 229 in the November Locus and says that Jim Hawkins’s Orchestral Manoeuvers in the Dark Matter is the strongest story. “This is a complex and chewy story, and it wouldn’t surprise me if some readers had trouble parsing it, particularily in the early going […] Stick with it, though, and you’ll ultimately be rewarded.” He also says that the rest of the stories “include some worthwhile reading”. Gardner also reviews Interzone 230 (which he feels is stronger than the previous issue) and says the strongest story “is Lavie Tidhar’s The Insurance Agent, a writer who’s having a good year so far, with several excellent stories published.” He also says that Nina Allan’s The Upstairs Window and Tim Lees’s Love and War are both “good”, and Patrick Samphire’s Camelot is “elegantly crafted”.

Rich Horton also reviews Interzone 230 in the same issue and makes The Upstairs Window one of his Recommended Stories.
