Albedo One # 44 (magazine review).

I haven’t read ‘Albedo One’ for some time and having looked at the Kindle version of number 44, I was once again able to enjoy the good fiction this publication has to offer. Coming from Ireland, the stories do possess a certain poetic charm that you can only find from this location. You have to […]

The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction Jan- Feb Volume 126 # 711 (magazine review).

A new year and a new issue of ‘The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction’ with which to celebrate it. Hurrah! The first thing I scanned was ‘The Via Panisperna Boys In “Operation Harmony”’, co-authored by Claudio Chillemi and Paul Di Filippo, two fellows clearly not frightened by quotation marks. Unless Germany invaded Czechoslovakia in […]

Apex Magazine Issue 54, November 2013 (magazine review).

I’m always prepared to accept that magazines will be a mixed bag of content as they have to cater for as large an audience as possible. Some items will hit the mark for me and some will miss completely. As it happens, the first story item ‘Recordings Of A More Personal Nature’ by Bogi Takács […]

The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction Nov/Dec 2013 Volume 125 # 710 (magazine review).

Ask a politician a question nowadays and he’ll tell you what he’s focusing on and what he’s focusing on won’t be the subject of the question. It goes without saying that ‘The Magazine Of Fantasy And Science Fiction’ contains interesting non-fiction articles and book reviews but what I’m focusing on is the stories. The big […]

On Spec: The Canadian Magazine Of The Fantastic vol 25 no. 1  #92 (magzine review).

‘On Spec’ has editorials, interviews and best of all, fiction. The two opening stories, ‘Bells Of Aberdovey’ by Kate Reidel and ‘Fur Is Dead’ by Lynn Stansbury are both the type that read like an ordinary tale of everyday life until you get to the end when there’s a fantastic conclusion which was hinted at […]

Jupiter # 41: XLI Aoede (magazine review).

10 years have now passed since the first issue of ‘Jupiter’ came into being and it is still going strong. Quite a landmark, an example of consistency and determination, and with quality fiction oozing out of the pages, the tradition has been maintained with issue 41. We’ve got five excellent stories to read and also […]

Spaceship Away Part 30 Summer 2013 (magazine review).

Blimey, ‘Spaceship Away’ has been going ten years now. I think I started reviewing them about six years back, where they were nice enough to supply the earlier issues to read and review. In this issue, publisher Rod Barzilay gives the statistics of how many stories and such they’ve had in thirty issues and at […]

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 […]
