Interzone is the sister magazine of Black Static, both are published by TTA Press in the UK. The distinguished Andy Cox is the editor of both.
As usual, Interzone puts other magazines to to shame when it comes to design and layout. Here’s a look at the table of contents.
Here’s the opening spread for “Breadcrumbs” by Malcolm Devlin (illustrated by Richard Wagner).
And “Mars, Aphids, and Your Cheating Heart” by James Van Pelt.
And “Lifeboat” by Rich Larson (illustrated by Martin Hanford).
Here’s a peek at the Book Zone review column.
And finally, Tony Lee’s Laser Fodder film review column.
As we’ve mentioned before, magazines like Interzone are completely dependent on fans and readers to keep them alive. I hope this one survives for a good long time — but it won’t without reader support. If it sounds intriguing, I hope you’ll consider buying an issue next time you find yourself browsing the magazine rack.
