The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Jul/Aug 2015, Volume 128 # 720 (magazine review).

I’m a bit behind with my reviews of ‘The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction’, as the July/August issue got lost in the aether. The lovely people at F&SF were kind enough to send a replacement copy once I realised what had happened, so I’m now trying to catch up. This issue contains a novella, […]

Encounters Magazine April/May 2015 issue # 13  (e-mag review)

As the cover date shows, I got to this ‘magazine late. ‘Encounters’ is one of the many small on-line magazines that publish Science Fiction, fantasy or horror by not so famous authors. Paying one cent a word or less, they are not going to make anyone rich but they provide a useful training ground for […]

Comic Book Artist No. 3 Winter 1999    (magazine review)

One of the odd side effects of reading some of TwoMorrows books and website is seeing the adverts for earlier editions of their books and magazines and then finding, especially with the latter, that they are out of print and only available digitally. If I’m especially interested in a particular title, then I would do […]

Apex Magazine Issue 73, June 2015  (emag review).

It’s another month which means it’s another ‘Apex Magazine’. After the last couple of issues, where it seemed to be losing direction and struggling for content, I had reservations about reading this one but old habits die hard and I had a quick look. This turned into a longer look and before I knew it, […]

This Long Vigil by Rhett C. Bruno (short story review)

‘This Long Vigil’ is the perfect short story. While the voyage of the ark ship Hermes does raise questions I’d love to see answered in a longer tale, the glimpse we have is succinct. Orion is nearing the end of his twenty-five year vigil as the only human attendant aboard the ark ship Hermes. With […]

The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction, May/Jun 2015, Volume 128 # 719  (magazine review)

The May/June 2015 issue of ‘The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction’ is the second one to be edited by C.C. Finlay and he takes the opportunity to do something unusual again, after leading the last issue with a Chinese novella in translation. This time the innovation is that all nine stories found within are […]

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. […]
