How come no mention of Rucker on the cover?

I think Rucker might be a mistake and the actual 6th story is the one on the cover (Concession Girl). It could be the other way round though.

It's the other way round. The person who uploaded the wrong cover has been sacked.

As you can tell, at one point Suzanne's story was definitely going into IZ215. But things rarely go according to plan, unfortunately. The real cover is correct, I just uploaded an older draft by mistake. So, apologies to Suzanne for the confusion. I'm a great fan of her work and hope to finally get 'Concession Girl' (and many more stories to follow, I hope) into print asap. IZ216 is the Mundane-SF issue, but Suzanne will be in IZ217, along with Karen Fishler's 'Africa' which for various reasons has also had to wait longer than author and publisher would've liked.

Another cracking issue!

I especially enjoyed 'Crystal nights' by Greg Egan.

Arrived in Bristol.

And it's nice to see The Man back.

Egan, Friday Night and a curry. What more could a man want?

Not much, Colin; not much. :)

Mine arrived today also. However, I'll be out celebrating our new anthology rather than reading it, I'm afraid ...

Arrived today in Workington, Cumbria.

I haven't had chance to read it, yet, and thankfully the dog is too busy playing up to his delusions of Andrex-puppyhood to have noticed the shiney new magazine...

Arrived today in Germany.

I have already read the Rudy Rucker and the Joy Marchand stories (I had the day off) and they were just great. And I haven't even touched the Egan or the McIntosh yet...

A mostly enjoyable issue - I loved the stories by Egan (and as an old-school Interzoner I'm doubly chuffed to see this author back), Rudy Rucker and Joy Marchand (a bizarrely offbeat idea), and Will McIntosh's superhero tale worked for me as well.

Patrick Samphire's 'Dragonfly Summer' was a good concept, but it felt a little too slight to really get my teeth into.

The only real downer for me was Jamie Barras' 'The Endling' (please look away now if you're reading this Jamie!), which I thought was frankly awful, and bordering on the unreadable (the first Interzone story in a long while I've had to struggle to finish). Maybe to some this was an intruigingly exotic SF tale, but I'm afraid to me it was a mostly impenatrable mess, filled with clumsy exposition, and by the end of the story I really couldn't tell you the difference between the various alien factions - Hila, Far-Beyonders, Melzemi - just names to me. Oh well, looking back I see I thought Jamie's 'Black Static' offering was a bit of a mess too - obviously this author just isn't for me.

Nevertheless, that little nastiness aside I thought this was a strong issue - next we go mundane - should be interesting!
