If you're already a subscriber please check the insert in the middle of IZ226 to see if there's a subscription reminder and renew if necessary. If you'd like to take out a new subscription please just click on any of the buy now/shop links and follow the simple instructions. Or just click here.

We recently sacked our main distributor for breach of contract (failure to pay us any money for 11 months), but we've signed up with a new one, who also specialises in overseas distribution, and we're excited to tell you that IZ227 will not only be available in the UK, but in the following countries too:

USA (including Barnes & Noble)
Germany
Greece
Cyprus
Austria
Norway
Croatia
New Zealand
Australia
Hong Kong
Singapore

Will open up a proper thread for the issue a bit nearer publication time.

When you say connected, can you literally put them together to make a bigger picture, that would be great?

Looking forward to reading Chris Beckett

That's right, pd. It didn't occur to me until Warwick showed me but I'll put a plan in the next issue which shows how the large image is building up. I'll also give the title, something else which I've neglected to do: Playground (Hide and Seek).

Warwick's already supplied the IZ228 cover, and it's awesome, and you start to get a real idea of how this is building up.

Oh, btw, you may notice that the image inside IZ227 is slightly different to the one on the cover. We had to make some 'dead space' to better accommodate things like masthead, not something that would matter in an ideal world but our new distributor strongly advised... I hope that Warwick's final version will be the original, how he intended it.

I understand the new distributor launches them at the continent from a catapult based just outside of Edinburgh.

For the rest of the world we have a giant elastic band aboard a Russian space station in orbit above the equator :lol:

Yeah, a few wrinkles that need ironing out. But what did your neighbour think of #226?

He was too busy swearing at me in German to take notice of it. If it turns up in the shops over here I'll buy him a copy. And teach him how to read English :D

To Nick Lowe:

In polite response to the bewildering first sentence in your review of The Road, the reason John Hillcoat "got the Hollywood go-ahead" was that he made a rather superb film called The Proposition. But the full story of the director's immense and heartfelt commitment to getting this extraordinary, uncommercial, and harrowing film realised (no easy task) is online for all to see. Personally, I rate the film as the best I saw last year, or possibly for many years. One might prefer the starkness of the prose in the book rather than starkness of imagery, but, frankly, as I've said elsewhere, it's damned hard to put the absence of quotation marks on screen! Lastly, I didn't find the boy too old or too wise, or the actors too fat (come on!), or that the cannibal horrors needed to be realised in the flesh - such a scene might well have been risible.

At least two copies of IZ 227 arrived here in Uppsala today. One for me, one for new subscriber and fellow Upsalafan, K. Lennart Jansson. He and I shall go for dinner tomorrow evening, and will no doubt exchange notes. I know that Lennart is glad to subscribe.

Not seen The Road, but I remember disliking The Proposition... too drearily 'arty' for my taste. I thought it was a sort of 'how to make a spaghetti-western that's boring' movie. Perhaps it lacked any humour..?
