I also received issue 209 in great condition. As a footnote, I've also posted a review of issues 208 and 209 on storySouth at http://www.storysouth.com/comment/2007/ ... ality.html

Hey Andy,

I don't know much about the whole publishing side of things, but here in the States, national newspapers like USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal, contract out with regional printers to print copies of their wares for local distribution. Which makes a certain amount of sense, seeing as how no one is going to pay to have their NYT flown by jet to an Undisclosed Midwestern City like Kansas City when they can get it for the same price in KC that they can in NYC.

Is it possible to set up something similar for Interzone? Seems to me the greatest barrier to competitiveness in the US market is shipping across the big lake called the Atlantic. But with the Internet, there isn't any reason I can see why you can't contract out with a local distributor in the United States, then get your product out that way.

Having said that, I have absolutely no idea how that would work or if it is even economically feasible.

Just a thought.

Respects,
S. F. Murphy

I don't know if I'm the only one in Kansas City trying to get copies (extra copies in my case since I have friends screaming at me for extras) but a place called Magazines and Coffee on 1722 Main Street (in the trendy Crossroads District) tells me today that they will be carrying Interzone Magazine starting next month.

Which is just in a nick of time, if you ask me.

I'll be sure to post here whether or not they actually follow through.

Respects,

Got mine last week, looks wonderful. I've gotten to read the Duncan story so far, and it is just fucking AMAZING. I can see why Jetse liked it so much. Hammer strokes of virtuoso poetry up the side of the head like a wet towel dipped in LSD. Fine, fine work. Can't wait to read the other stories when I get a free hand.

Thanks for all that folks, specially SF Murphy for telling us where IZ is on sale. We have a new US distributor so maybe we will do better. Local publishing is fine when you sell thousands per issue in the area but we haven't quite reached that target yet.

Well, it was a suggestion, Roy.

BTW, apparently the husband of the owner of Magazines and Coffee was a fellow creative writing student a couple of years back and had been following my blog. Soon as he saw my blog announcement, he made arrangements to carry Interzone in their store (nice place, btw, I did a reece of it last Saturday).

He also got in touch with me to do a reading. I'm thrilled and terrified in equal measures.

I'll see if I can't push some copies and some of IZ's stable of established writers when I do the reading.

Respects,

Arrived here in eastern France two days ago, in perfect condition. Thanks a lot to whoever's responsible, since I subscribed only a few days ago. :D

Thanks again SF Murphy. Let us know if Magazines and Coffee manage to get more copies. Distribution cover is not great in the US. Enjoy the reading as well.

One day I'd like to have pages listing where readers can buy IZ but its difficult at present.

IZ is sold in the Borders here in Asheville, but so far they still have #208 on the shelf.
