Alter-Ego # 137 (January 2016) (magazine review).

I knew last year that Jim Shooter was going to be interviewed in Alter-Ego # 137 and was part of the reason why I was pushing publisher John Morrow that we really should be reviewing their magazine output. After all, there are a lot of significant names in comicbooks but Shooter still holds the distinction […]

Apex Magazine # 80, January 2016 (magazine review).

The first ‘Apex’ magazine of 2016 is a bumper edition with a rather surreal cover by Matt Davis. It’s a cover that certainly gets your attention so I suppose it does its job. Jason Sizemore is holding the Editor-In-Chief baton so we’re in safe hands. Squeezed into this edition are six original works, two reprints, […]

Uncanny Magazine Issue number 8 January/February 2016   (magazine review)

When ‘Uncanny Magazine’ came out, the covers were a bit wishy-washy but now they have improved remarkably. The latest issue has a cover by Priscilla H Kim who comes from Austin, Texas. Some of her work concentrates on the theme of warrior women and one such example appears on the front page. Yes, a definite […]

Illustrators # 9    (magazine review)

As soon as I saw the cover of Illustrators # 9, I recognised the work of Bruce Pennington because it’s the cover of ‘Time, Space And Nathaniel’ by Brian Aldiss. It’s also one of the few times where I bought the book for the cover art but didn’t care for the stories (four of them) […]

Draw! # 31   (magazine review)

The great thing about ‘Draw!’ magazine is that you get to see a lot of work from specific comicbook artists, with a couple extensive interviews. This includes a lot of their preliminary leading to their final work and comments on same. If you’re an artist or wannabe, this kind of insight is gold dust in […]

The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Sept/Oct 2015, Volume 128 # 721   (magazine review)

This issue contains one novella, four novelettes, five short stories and a poem, along with the usual assortment of non-fiction articles. So, how do they stack up? First, a shout out for […]

Fantasy Scroll Magazine issue # 9 (e-magazine review).

Cards on the table, ‘Fantasy Scroll Magazine’ rejected a story I sent them. I submitted, believing it to be a lower level sort of market that might take the second best stuff (mine) because they only pay one cent a word, semi-professional rates in the twilight world of small magazines. Imagine my surprise on actually […]

Uncanny Magazine Issue 7, December 2015 (e-magazine review).

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 […]
