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 […]

Spaceship Away Part 29 Spring 2012 (magazine review).

In many respects, the latest issue of ‘Spaceship Away’ is more text dominated than usual. This is, in part, because writer Charles Chilton, who allows them to reprint his ‘Journey Into Space’ comicstrip died in January at the great age of 95. There is also a continuing part of ‘Shadow Over Britain’ where Chilton’s lead […]

Comic Book Creator # 1 Spring 2013 (magazine review).

‘Comic Book Creator’ is the replacement title for ‘Comic Book Artist’, that lasted two years. Although not stated, the implication within this edition that the comicbook artist, especially those who use the Marvel method, contribute greatly to the storytelling so calling it ‘creator’ covers those who can do both and covers some aspect of writing […]

Jupiter 40: XL Mneme (magazine review).

I can’t believe ‘Jupiter Magazine’ has now reached 40. Time passes so quickly and it doesn’t seem long since it was a teenager. However, with maturity, it gets better and better and in this issue there are plenty of good stories for you to read. Author David Conyers is also an artist and he provides […]

Spaceship Away Part 28 Autumn 2012 (magazine review).

I have to confess that I thought the latest ‘Spaceship Away’ was just running late, especially as I knew publisher Rod Barzilay was involved in writing a Dan Dare book for Haynes Publishing, which is coming out later in 2013 and yes, I am scheduled to be reviewing it. Seems like this issue got lost […]

Apex Magazine # 47 (e-mag review).

This is something different! A rather unique identity with challenging, rewarding and expertly crafted fiction! This is the first time I’ve had a look at ‘Apex Magazine’ and I’m rather pleased I did. All you have to do is look up the website and the fiction comes free of charge. However, should you wish to […]
