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