The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction Nov/Dec 2013 Volume 125 # 710 (magazine review).

Ask a politician a question nowadays and he’ll tell you what he’s focusing on and what he’s focusing on won’t be the subject of the question. It goes without saying that ‘The Magazine Of Fantasy And Science Fiction’ contains interesting non-fiction articles and book reviews but what I’m focusing on is the stories. The big […]

On Spec: The Canadian Magazine Of The Fantastic vol 25 no. 1  #92 (magzine review).

‘On Spec’ has editorials, interviews and best of all, fiction. The two opening stories, ‘Bells Of Aberdovey’ by Kate Reidel and ‘Fur Is Dead’ by Lynn Stansbury are both the type that read like an ordinary tale of everyday life until you get to the end when there’s a fantastic conclusion which was hinted at […]

Jupiter # 41: XLI Aoede (magazine review).

10 years have now passed since the first issue of ‘Jupiter’ came into being and it is still going strong. Quite a landmark, an example of consistency and determination, and with quality fiction oozing out of the pages, the tradition has been maintained with issue 41. We’ve got five excellent stories to read and also […]

Spaceship Away Part 30 Summer 2013 (magazine review).

Blimey, ‘Spaceship Away’ has been going ten years now. I think I started reviewing them about six years back, where they were nice enough to supply the earlier issues to read and review. In this issue, publisher Rod Barzilay gives the statistics of how many stories and such they’ve had in thirty issues and at […]

The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction Sept/Oct 2013 Volume 125 # 709 (magazine review).

Readers of ‘Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance’ will be familiar with the idea that an analytical knife can cut in different ways. Almost any issue of ‘The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science-Fiction’ could be divided into those eponymous categories. It could also be divided, as on the contents page, into novelettes and short […]

Apex Magazine # 50 (e-magazine review).

‘Apex Magazine’ describes itself to be in the realms of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror. ‘Strange, beautiful, shocking, surreal’ are also words which appear on the website. After having read ‘Apex’ for a few issues you can certainly understand that the claims may be true. In order to survive the length of time that Apex […]

Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine # 57 (magazine review).

Another great issue from the Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine collective, this time edited by Lucy Zinklewicz with an editorial stating that all of the 19 short stories were selected from the slush pile which is good news for aspiring writers out there sickened by rejection slips from unread manuscripts sent to many other magazines. A […]

Black Static # 20 – Dec 2010-Jan 2011 (magazine review).

A feature that favours the best magazines is consistency. This is not just in the quality of the contents, though this is very important, but in the layout. A regular reader likes to know what to expect when they pick up a copy. A young magazine will experiment with layout and design but even the […]

The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction July/Aug 2013 Volume 124 # 707 (magazine review).

‘The Magazine Of Fantasy And Science-Fiction’ explores the opposite extremes of the fantasy genre in this issue with a nice mix of Science Fiction and fairy tales. Most of the stories fall into one category or the other, so we’ll start with the fantasy. ‘Heartsmith’s Daughters’ by Harry R. Campion is a fairy tale about […]
