Next month’s Interzone is a Dominic Green special with three stories from him. He’s also interviewed by Andy Hedgecock, and there is more fiction from Susanne Palmer and Eric Gregory. David Langford, Tony Lee and Nick Lowe will be supplying their usual high-quality non-fiction.

The Bookzone features an interview with Joe Abercrombie and a review of his latest novel, Best Served Cold, by Maureen Kincaid Speller who, because of a massive onslaught of gremlins at the other end,  went above and beyond the call of duty on her way to delivering an excellent piece.  There’s also a chance to win a complete set of Joe’s novels as well.

Other books reviewed are:

Retribution Falls by Chris Wooding (reviewed by Sandy Auden)

Canary Fever by John Clute (reviewed by Paul Kincaid)

Ice Song by Kirsten Imani Kasai (reviewed by Peter Loftus)

Offworld by Robin Parrish (reviewed by Ian Sales)

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?
