The Summer 2011 edition of the British Fantasy Society Journal is here, which seems to have caused the weather to finally remember what season it is. Inside it you will find my reviews of Jesse Bullington’s The Enterprise of Death, John Twelve Hawks’ The Golden City, Priscilla Masters’ Grave Stones,  Aliette de Bodard’s Harbinger of the Storm and Alan Campbell’s Sea of Ghosts.
It also has fiction and poetry from Allen Ashley, Jan Edwards, Douglas J. Ogurek, Eric Boman, Adrian Stumpp, Gavin B. Nash, Adam Walter, Rick Kleffel, J. R. Salling, Clint Smith, Michael Kelly, Annie Neugebaur and James Brogden.
There is plenty of non-fiction from, amongst others, Ramsey Campbell, John Llewllyn Probert, Mark Morris, Mary Danby and Mike Barrett. Scores of reviews: books; films; graphic novels; audiobooks.
Available in paperback and Kindle edition.

I’ll have a few reviews in this unless I’m very much mistaken. Available mid-to-late June — join the BFS and get your copy. Or not. It’s a free world, at least when it comes to things like this.

It already has a thread on the BFS forum.

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

The Physiognomy/Memoranda/The Beyond by Jeffrey Ford (reviews and interview by Rick Kleffel)

The Gabble And Other Stories by Neal Asher (review by Tony Lee)

Agent To The Stars by John Scalzi (review by Juliet McKenna)

The Engine’s Child by Holly Phillips (review by Mike Cobley)

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. PowellEugie 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.
