Interzone 251 has been around for a wee while now. And so has my stinking dose of the cold. You can order Interzone directly from TTA Press or you can buy it from the usual suspects. You can pick up this cold pretty easily as well.

In this issue’s Book Zone we have Paul Kincaid reviewing and interviewing Simon Ings about Wolves and other things, and we also have the latest Future Interrupted column from Jonathan McCalmont. Other books reviewed are:

The Gospel of Loki by Joanne M. Harris (reviewed by Maureen Kincaid Speller)

Empress of the Sun by Ian McDonald (reviewed by Duncan Lunan)

News from Unknown Countries by Tim Lees (reviewed by Matthew S. Dent)

The Black Dog Eats the City by Chris Kelso (reviewed by me)

The Arrows of Time by Greg Egan (reviewed by John Howard)

Shovel Ready by Adam Sternbergh (reviewed by Barbara Melville)

Fiddlehead by Cherie Priest (reviewed by Elaine Gallagher)

Hive Monkey by Gareth L. Powell (reviewed by Ian Hunter)

Beyond the Rift by Peter Watts (reviewed by Jo L. Walton)

The Copper Promise by Jen Williams (reviewed by Jack Deighton)

You can follow discussion about this issue on the TTA boards where it has its own dedicated thread.

I’m going to go and drink another Lemsip now.

Interzone 248

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)

Deathless by Catherynne M. Valente (reviewed by Jack Deighton)

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.
