This has probably been the best of recent issues. Not a weak story among them, and the artwork was fantastic too. My favourite story was probably Jim Hawkins' "Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark Matter", but it's a tough choice.

Excellent work guys. I'm holding IZ#229 (and TTA) personally responsible for me retaining what's left of my sanity through my Sainsburys induction. Now to get stuck into the reviews... :D

Blimey Matthew, I feel quite buoyed by IZ's contribution to keeping you sane at Sainsbury's. I'm having terrible Sainso's related flashbacks myself now...

I've watched so many poorly produced DVDs on how to respond to customers, I needed a little sci-fi.

Haven't received mine, but maybe it will arrive in the mail today.

BTW, here's a great new review of issue 229: http://scififantasyfiction.suite101.com ... s-reviewed

On the strength of the review in IZ#229, I've just ordered Chris Beckett's "Holy Machine". The fact that it has a quote from Interzone on the front pretty much sold it to me. Any book that quotes Interzone on the cover has it's head screwed on right :D

I think the John Fair review needs a spoiler warning.

Definitely. It leaves no mystery about the stories. I always considered the best reviews to be the ones that give an impression of the flavour and the quality of the subject matter, without spoiling the content. John Fair's manages to recount the stories in a few lines. Not cool.

I think I'd have to agree on that - a really enjoyable tale.

These are not really reviews; more summaries.

Got it today in Split, Croatia.
It has been mailed in Holland on 15th of July.

By the way, I like the idea of publishing non-English speaking authors in Interzone. More of that, please, if it's not too expensive (translations).

I have Marcher and Beckett's award winning collection.
Now I'm deffinitely going to order The Holy Machine (from Book Depository).
