The only story by Tim Lees that I see above is the one called "Preachers". Maybe I missed something.

Originally I had Tim Lees writing Toke as well, but Tim Akers wrote that. I edited my post when Colin pointed out my error (I should've said I'd done that, sorry Colin!).

No worries, Andy.

I'm looking forward to the Ellison article on Sturgeon.

Picked up the latest Interzone in Belfast (Easons newsagents). The Ellison piece was very good indeed. Will give the fiction a go over the weekend but it all looks like another solid issue with stunning illustrations and clear readable text!.

Thanks Mootpoint.
Easons, Belfast - one for the stockist list when I do it again.

I got mine yesterday, but have only just got round to reading it (day off). After my first read through, I think "Toke" is probably my favourite of the stories. I'll be reading it again once I get it back from my sister to see if I think the same in a month's time :) .

got IZ today. I like to object to having one artist doing all the artwork for all the stories,reason is when I was in my teens I saw a lot of artist who gave up drawing because they had no outlet for their art so they ended up doing other things some went into jobs others into drugs etc and anyway you don't have one writer writing all the stories for one issue

I have to disagree about one artist doing all the work, at least in this instance. One artist per issue isn't Interzone's standard policy--this is a fun, one-time experiment (if I understand things right). Andy's job isn't to give work to young, struggling artists and thereby keep them off drugs. It is to produce the most entertaining and appealing magazine possible, and that sometimes involves taking risks and trying oddball things (such as having one artist illustrate every story).

I doubt this would become standard practice for practical matters. It puts a massive load on the artist's schedule, and the 'zine can't go to press for that issue until all the work is completed, whereas spreading the same work out among a variety of artists allows for quicker turnaround. And, speaking from an editorial perspective, there are few joys greater than discovering and/or nurturing a new talent.
