The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction, May/Jun 2017, Volume 132 # 731  (magazine review)

This third issue of ‘The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction’ for 2017 lacks any novellas but makes up for their absence with four novelettes, seven short stories, a poem and all the usual non-fiction. I’ll start with the novelettes. ‘Witch’s Hour’ is Shannon Connor Winward’s fiction debut in ‘MoF&SF’ and tells the tale of […]

Phantaxis: Science Fiction & Fantasy Magazine May 2017 # 5   (emag review)

‘Phantaxis’ is a magazine of Science Fiction and fantasy short stories and novelettes. I found it doing market research and bought it to read on a well-known book website. The electronic version is cheap for 224 pages of good stuff. Really good stuff, to be fair. The first novelette, ‘Thinking Outside The Flock’ by Sarina […]

Frostfire Worlds edited by Tyree Campbell   (book review)

I’m late with this review of ‘Frostfire World’s as the May 2017 issue is already out but never mind. The magazine is aimed at readers aged 8-17 which is quite a variation. Some of the stories are fairly adult and some are obviously for younger kids. There’s poetry, too, but I’ll focus on the fiction. […]

Shadows & Tall Trees 7 by Alison Moore and Brian Evenson    (book review)

This is a volume of modern weird stories, the kind that aspire to fine writing and a certain atmosphere of dread rather than hero overcoming a succession of crises to win out in the last act plot shenanigans. Heroes overcoming a succession of crises to win out in the last act plots are good for […]

Blackwing (The Raven’s Mark book 1) by Ed McDonald   (book review)

When Blackwing Galharrow receives his orders, it is through a searing pain as his raven tattoo breaks out of his arm. Ouch! This epic fantasy is set in a recognisable world where magic is used to raise armies of the dead. This is a world of soldiers, Deep Kings, the Nameless, hopeless humans and The […]
