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) […]

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 […]

I can’t deny that this is a pretty kick-ass looking painting of Yoda flying towards me on the cover of ‘Star Wars: Jedi Master’ magazine, a new monthly American publication from Titan Comics and Disney aimed at pre-teen kids. As a youngster, I would have been attracted to the cover alone. The on-going theme throughout […]

Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine # 61   (emagazine review)

Maybe a bit late in coming out, the new issue of ‘Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine’ (ASIM) is nevertheless welcome. Anyway, wouldn’t it be a bit boring otherwise, like having the same thing for dinner each day of the week, roast beef on Sunday, spaghetti on Tuesday and fish on Friday, so at least this way […]

The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Jul/Aug 2015, Volume 128 # 720 (magazine review).

I’m a bit behind with my reviews of ‘The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction’, as the July/August issue got lost in the aether. The lovely people at F&SF were kind enough to send a replacement copy once I realised what had happened, so I’m now trying to catch up. This issue contains a novella, […]
