On Spec: The Canadian Magazine Of The Fantastic vol 26 no. 4  # 99 (magazine review).

The fiction doesn’t start until page 32 of this issue of ‘On Spec’, when you have ‘My Pink Galoshes’ by Krista D. Ball. (Is that a pseudonym?) Galoshes, I believe, are what we in England call Wellington boots, waterproof footwear named after the Duke of Wellington who whupped Napoleon at Waterloo, albeit with rather more […]

Apex Magazine Issue 72, May 2015 (magazine review).

It’s been a couple of months since I last read ‘Apex Magazine’ and the first thing to hit you is the cover artwork by Beth Spencer which is striking to say the least. It’s not often you see a steampunk fairy. While talking about the cover, I should mention that there’s a good interview with […]

Alter Ego # 120 (magazine review).

I think the cover of Alter Ego # 120 should give away why I pulled this magazine that was released in 2013. This was the first cover for The X-Men # 10, as drawn by Jack Kirby and inked by Chic Stone and one of those rare instances, Stan Lee decided he wanted something different. […]

Back Issue # 68 (magazine review).

Although I’ve nearly completed my whistle-stop tour of ‘Legion Of Super-Heroes’ material outstanding since DC Comics have removed them from their titles. I thought it was about time I had a look at TwoMorrows’ magazine Back Issue # 68 that gave all its attention to the 30th century from the 1970s-80s, although there is some […]

Uncanny Magazine # 3 March/April 2015 (emag review).

Maybe a slight hint of panic in the editorial of ‘Uncanny Magazine’ regarding future funding but otherwise this new magazine seems to be going along quite well. With the third issue, ‘Uncanny’ has probably established its own identity and there are no problems in attracting submissions, so much so that they have been closed until […]

On Spec: The Canadian Magazine Of The Fantastic vol 26 no. 3  # 98 (magazine review).

After the contents page and the subscription information, On Spec # 98 opens with an editorial: ‘The Future Of On Spec And The Challenges We Face’ by Diane L. Walton, Managing Editor. Small arts magazines cannot get by on the revenues from advertisers and subscribers alone but need extra funding. Their government grant has been […]

Comic Book Creator # 6 Presents Swampmen (magazine review).

I often wondered about the American love of swamps. Certainly, they have more of them than we have, so it’s pretty much a climate thing. When you include how dark and murky they are, it’s a natural fodder to think big beasties, other than alligators could stalk out of it or bond with humans and […]

The first issue of ‘The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction’ for 2015 is packed full of content, including five novelettes, six short stories, two poems and the usual set of non-fiction columns. What greets you first as you pick the magazine up is a gorgeously colourful, if somewhat static, image of a ghostly figure […]

Uncanny Magazine # 2 January/February 2015 (emag review).

The second issue of the new speculative fiction magazine, ‘Uncanny Magazine’, is with us and, by all accounts, it’s a rather good read. It has got off the mark running and let’s hope it keeps up the good pace. You can read some of the content online but is also available if you purchase the […]
