Black Gate 14 goes to press this month. It’s a big issue — including a Morlock novella from James Enge, the sequel to “The Face in the Sea” (BG 13) from John C. Hocking, and great new adventure fantasy from Martin Owton, Matthew Surridge, Pete Butler, Michael Jasper & Jay Lake, and many others.
Of course, that’s not all. Contributing Editor Rich Horton delivers another great retrospective piece, this one a detailed look at your best bets for quality reprints of Classic Fantasy, with spotlights on Baen Books, Paizo’s excellent Planet Stories, the SF & Fantasy Masterworks line from Orion/Gollancz, the Science Fiction Book Club, the esteemed Haffner Press, NESFA, and many more.
We’ll also have our usual generous review features, as well as a very special Knights of the Dinner Table strip, as Eddie, Sara and Patty visit their first science fiction convention, and Eddie confronts Neil Gaiman for stealing all his ideas.
I hope to post a complete sneak peek, with artwork and story excerpts, in a few weeks. Stay tuned for further updates. Here’s a look at the wrap-around cover to tide you over, from the marvelous Bruce Pennington:
