A repeat of material on the Interzone home page.

Geoff Ryman will be talking about Interzone 216, the mundane sf issue, on Radio 4 tonight (Friday 2 May) at 7:30, Front Row, I assume, and you should be able to listen againusing the BBC website if you miss it.

Damien G Walter has a brilliant article in the Guardian Unlimited/Guardian On line.

Here is a quote
Quote:
The Mundane manifesto was perfectly pitched to infuriate the SF community. On the one hand it aimed a casual insult at SF readers who enjoyed the powerful myths it criticised. On the other it alienated the science-obsessed "Hard SF" faction who felt directly attacked by the Mundanistas. The attitudes of both sides hardened around a series of wonderfully arrogant statements issuing from the Mundanista camp, claiming ….

This link takes you direct to the audio for Front Row. You need to skip in to 13 minutes (feature starts around 13:48 ).

Cheers, Mike

All contributor and subscriber copies have now left TTA Towers. UK copies should arrive towards the end of next week, and overseas copies in a couple of weeks, maybe a bit longer if you're unlucky (see separate thread for reports of arrival/non-arrival). It's a fine looking issue I think, especially considering the speed at which it was done, and Chris Nurse's stunning artwork has come out extremely well. Looking forward to your comments and discussions. There has been some already, on the Asimov's forum, Guardian blog, BSFA forum, places like that. It'd be nice to have some of that here!

Don't forget the special offer on Greg Egan's new novel Incandescence. I've given that a separate thread if you can't wait for your copy to arrive.

Makes for a better informed discussion if we've actually read it first :)

No no, Vaque, much better to comment before you've read it.

Reviewers do get advance PDF's of the magazine but its hard work reading that on screen. Its also a big print out.

As a humble subscriber I have to wait until the issue finds its way into the Cumbrian hinterlands - books, covers, not much scope for comment. But it looks to me as if those lacings would chafe. :shock:

BTW, is it a closely guarded secret how many review copies you issue?

Don't suppose you know if WH Smith in Heathrow Terminal 3 sell this, Roy? Could use reading material to see me through twelve hours of boredom.

For those interested, I picked up a copy today at my local Londis. Here I am, wilds of nowhere, shop full of people who'll scowl as soon as serve you, and I find Interzone.

I've been looking forwards to reading this one ... :)

Sorry Troo. I've been away and hence the late reply.
We have to pay £1000's to get it in such locations so it's very unlikely you'll find it there.
