Loved 'Unexpected Outcomes' - easily the best story in this issue for me, and that gorgeous cover has to be one of the most eye-catching Interzone covers ever, even better than the last couple (which were fantastic!)

Klaus Eylmann found IZ darker than American sf magazines and recommends it? Can any German speakers confirm that’s the gist?

Seems about the scale of it (I cheated and used Google Language Tools - My grade C in O-level German was scraped a long time ago! :lol: )

Lawrence didn't mention that he reviews this issue in much greater depth here.

A good issue.
My favorites were 'Unexpected Outcomes" and 'Lady of the White-Spired City'.

Rich Horton reviews Interzone 222 in August's Locus. He mentions two stories and says Tim Pratt's Unexpected Outcomes is "Thoughtful work," and "I also enjoyed Sarah L. Edwards' Lady of the White Spired City".

Gardner Dozois reviews Interzone 222 in his column for September's Locus (#584). He says "The best story in Interzone 222 is Sarah L. Edward's Lady of the White-Spired City, a quiet, understated, but also subtly powerful story about an emissary of an interstellar civilisation returning to the land of her birth after a span of generations away, and having to struggle with all the myriad of ghosts of the past that are raised by her return. In Unexpected Outcomes, Tim Pratt spins an ingenious tale in which people react to the news that their world is actually a computer simulation - being run as part of an elaborate social experiment in some uber-universe - with defiance rather than despair, and decide to alter the outcome of the experiment by altering their behaviour within it. In Mother of Champions, Sean McMullen exposes a worldwide conspiracy by super-intelligent cheetahs who use their powerss to manipulate the human race to their own advantage - entertaining and audacious, but I find the cheetah cabal almost as unlikely as his two-mile-long art-eating dragon. Aliette de Bodard delivers Ys, an atmospheric fantasy about the magical raising from the sea of the long-drowned world of Ys, a story that reminds me strongly of Fritz Leiber's classic Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser story 'The Sunken Land'." He wasn't so taken with the other two stories but, overall, it's a pretty neat review.
