Today's post brought two handsome copies of Interzone 257, which contains my new story for the magazine. See earlier post for a short excerpt from the story.
It's always a pleasure to be back in Interzone. Not only was the magazine instrumental in getting my career off the ground, by publishing my first stories and helping foster the professional contacts that eventually led to a novel deal, it had an immeasurable impact on the state of British science fiction. Interzone launched many new writers, but more than that it brought a vital centre back to the field, reigniting a conversation (sometimes fractious, but always interesting) that had all but faded since the demise of New Worlds. I still think Interzone is one of the best places to get a sense of where science fiction is at, and where it's headed.
You can subscribe to Interzone here:
Or you can find it in newsagents and specialist SF bookshops. Go on, give it a try.
I can imagine it felt a bit nostalgic, given your long personal history with Interzone. :-)ReplyDelete
Sadly, I can't buy an issue over here (unless I could maybe order it online from my country), but it's good to hear an SF mag with decades of tradition is still going strong.
