Issue #2, cover dated January/February 2015, contains new fiction by Hao Jingfang, Sam J. Miller, Amal El-Mohtar, Richard Bowes, and Sunny Moraine, and a classic reprint by Ann Leckie. There’s also poetry from Isabel Yap, Mari Ness, and Rose Lemberg. Nonfiction this issue includes Jim C. Hines’s “The Politics of Comfort,” “The Future’s Been Here Since 1939: Female Fans, Cosplay, and Conventions” by Erica McGillivray, “Age of the Geek, Baby” by Michi Trota, and Keidra Chaney on “The Evolution of Nerd Rock.”
Black Gate‘s website editor emeritus C.S.E. Cooney joined Uncanny last month as their newest podcast reader, and this issue includes two full podcasts, with C.S.E. and Amal El-Mohtar reading two stories and two poems. I admit I puzzled over exactly how a magazine could include a podcast, before I remembered that Uncanny is digital-only. Shows you how old school I am.
We last covered Uncanny Magazine with Issue #1, which contained new fiction by Maria Dahvana Headley, Kat Howard, Max Gladstone, Amelia Beamer, Ken Liu, and Christopher Barzak, and a reprint from Jay Lake, plus poetry by Neil Gaiman, Amal El-Mohtar, and Sonya Taaffe.
