Unfortunately, the opposite has been the case, which is why I’m only now getting round to reviewing the issue of ,The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, from November/December 2019. The mag includes five novelettes, […]

To celebrate this impressive achievement, editor Charlie Finlay filled the magazine with some seriously heavyweight content, including Michael Moorcock’s debut piece […]

The editorial team at ‘The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction’ are rather good at commissioning interesting cover art. With the July/August 2019 issue, they’ve outdone themselves, at least for a pulp SF fan like me. The picture, ‘Robots Invade!’ was produced on spec by Mondolithic Studios, rather than to illustrate a story already accepted […]

Normal service will be resumed shortly, I promise. There are 3 novelettes, 8 short stories, a poem and 6 […]

The first thing to note about the July/August issue of ‘The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction’ is the wonderfully retro-cover painting. Bob Eggleton’s ‘Big Mars’ shows a 1950s-style angular rocketship sitting vertically on the craggy surface of Deimos, the smaller of Mars’ two moons, while the sky above is dominated by a huge Mars, […]
