Cover Art:

This is the third panel of six connected images by Warwick Fraser-Coombe which at the end of the year will form a new, much larger image called Playground (Hide and Seek).

Stories:

The Untied States of America by Mario Milosevic
illustrated by Dave Senecal


Quote:
Five days ago: I sighted land off the eastern cliff. I was doing a standard search of the water, part of my job. I stood on the edge of the precipice of my home state of Washington, the water lapping at the rocks a couple of thousand feet below me, a thin line of white marking the shore line. There was a beach, of sorts, down there. I sometimes wanted to descend to it, but never had the nerve. It would be an epic rock climb, something I was too old for anyway. An old woman. Good only for looking out to sea.


Iron Monk by Melissa Yuan-Innes
illustrated by Jim Burns


Quote:
“Are we going to die?” asked Little Tiger. He bounced on his toes and hesitated, knees bent, as the hook and eye soles of his boots nearly ripped free of the practice mat.


A Passion For Art by David D. Levine
illustrated by Mark Pexton


Quote:
Tuesday is Free Day at the Art Institute of Chicago, and the revolving door never stops turning. The old black rubber seals on the door thump with a steady rhythm, like a giant heart, and each beat pumps more people into the dark and cool of the marble-floored lobby. Mothers pushing strollers; tourists in baseball caps; noisy gaggles of school kids. They stop for a moment, their eyes adjusting to the dark, then move to the information desk in the middle of the lobby to pick up a map or ask questions. They’re here out of some sense of duty; they feel they ought to see this stuff, or show it to their kids.


Plague Birds by Jason Sanford
illustrated by Darren Winter


Quote:
All morning Cristina de Ane battled her mule as they plowed furrow after furrow of stinking black dirt. This was Crista’s first time working the wheat field since the attack and Eggbeater took full advantage of her injured body, continually stopping and starting, turning left or right, and destroying every attempt to plow a straight line.


Over Water by Jon Ingold
illustrated by Richard Wagner


Quote:
This is how I tell my story first. Do you understand me? This is Hawnish. Long sounds and sharp Ss like the keel of a skiff pulled up over small stones. I tell in Hawnish first, always, to be certain that I have remembered it all and all in its proper places. A story is like a path of stepping stones, placed one after the next but never too far apart, to cross the gap from my life and yours.

The Gene Wolfe interview will probably be the first thing I read in the issue. Now begins the daily walk to the mailbox with increased anticipation, to end in further anticipation or disappointment.

Arrived in the Norfolk badlands today. And looks gorgeous, especially as you can now see how the cover 'jigsaw' is shaping up.

Some interesting similarities between 'Untied States of America' and 'Over Water', the pair of which were probably the highlights for me this issue.

Mine has arrived.

I think the colour does a lot for the reviews. In the sense that it makes them stand out.

Oh... I haven't read it yet but i'm going to!

Gawd, yes, saw the Crimewave ad last night and it looks fabulous.

Just started reading IZ - great Ansible Link! But someone, please tell me Sigourney Weaver was joking when she said that about Avatar. Or being ironic. Or something....
