‘Uncanny’ is a magazine of fantasy and Science Fiction that also features author interviews and non-fiction essays. Fiction first then. ‘Don’t You Worry, You Aliens’ by Paul Cornell has no aliens, no plot, no conflict and no point. It’s a description of a man in a town by himself because everyone else has left. We […]

‘Uncanny Magazine’ is full of fiction, poetry, articles and interviews with a couple of featured authors.

Well, I’ve not read ‘Uncanny Magazine’ before so this should be a journey into the unknown with hidden dangers and surprises or so I thought. Once past the striking cover and the contents section, there’s a piece about the cover artist. Hmmm, this feels a bit familiar. Next up is an editorial comment from Lynne […]

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.
