Sonic booms split the emerald sky. From the baked clay courtyard, the fighters are nothing more than pale, silvery wedges, streaking between the clouds trailing lines of white vapor. The women clustered around the well turn their veiled faces up, eyes searching the heavens.

In the highlands overlooking Valles Marineris, human performers had erected a massive red-and-white-striped tent supported by poles planted in the orange dirt. As I steered our buzzer closer, Master Alex pointed excitedly, his light brown hair flapping in the wind, a huge smile stretched across his angelic face. He leapt out of the side of the buzzer as soon as it slowed down – even though it still hovered three feet off the ground – and bolted into a bustling crowd of humans. I took a deep breath to maintain my composure at the sight of so much concentrated beauty.

68° North, Dolphin and Union Strait, Day 5Jorgen took four months to grow in the lab back in Ilulissat. I lost three of his twin brothers in the acceleration process, two more dying of what must have been some kind of residual shock during the journey out. His birth, even in this day and age, was a miracle with the facilities I had. 

Eleven Minutes by Gareth L. Powell

Gary and Carl sat at their desks, hunched in front of bright flatscreen displays, someroom at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Dusk had fallen over the hills beyond the windows, and the only sound in the room was the occasional snick of a key being tapped.

The coffin was closed when Sarah went to say goodbye to her brother. Before she could even think about asking, the funeral director had touched her hand, and said, “Of course, it would be better to remember him…as he was”. Insurgents had taken advantage of a traffic jam to attack Peter’s convoy. Fire had taken his jeep before he could escape, flaying the life from him.

Lifetime Subscriptions:

We’ve often been asked if we’ll reintroduce the option of a lifetime subscription to Interzone, and some current Interzone lifers have asked about the possibility for sister magazine Black Static. So we make the lifetime subscription available again now, on exactly the same terms as before: the amount you pay is equivalent to ten years’ subscription at the current rate, and a lifetime is defined as “one which lasts either the lifetime of the subscriber or the lifetime of the magazine”. This applies to both Interzone and Black Static, and there is also an option to take out a slightly cheaper joint lifetime subscription to both.

These lifetime subscriptions have now been added to the order form in the centre of the magazine, and to the Shop. It goes without saying that such long term subscriptions are of great benefit and support to the magazine, so many thanks in advance to those of you who take up the offer.

 

How To Buy:

Interzone is available in good shops in the UK, USA (including Barnes & Noble) and many other countries. If your local shop doesn't stock it they should be able to order it in for you so please don't hesitate to ask them. You can also buy the magazine from a variety of online retailers. The best thing though – for you and for us – is to follow the links on this page to our own shop and take out a subscription.

If you like Interzone please help spread the word by blogging about the magazine and encouraging other people to subscribe. Thank you for your support!

 

E-Edition (An Apology):

Normally a version of each new issue of Interzone (and sister magazine Black Static) could be downloaded from Fictionwise. Unfortunately we have failed to keep this process up to date and are now several months behind. If this has affected you please accept our apologies and reassurances that we are trying to fix the problem. Keep checking the Fictionwise pages for new issues. Thanks for your patience!
