A triumphant start to 2013 for the massive TTA Press publicity machine as Guy Haley is interviewed for This is Bath, the Bath Chronicle and This is Somerset. Guy's story iROBOT appears in Interzone 244. Check out the photo on one of these links.

Here's my review of Interzone 244:


Re: 'Sky Leap - Earth Flame'. It's rather ironic that a review which begins with a "rant" about sloppiness should get the name of one of the central characters wrong. For "Miriam" read Mariam.

This said, I do agree with Steve's point about measurement units - consistency is preferred here too. In fact, as one who is lucky and trusted enough to proof read Jim's material, I have to take partial blame for that lapse. I wonder if I've lost my job.

In the meantime, I am a little curious to know why the use of imperial units in futuristic fiction should be so objectionable per se.

I don't normally like to comment on reviews, but I don't want anybody to be put off reading the story. For the record: there are four instances of Imperial measure in the 9,500 words of the story and 14 metric references. The Imperial measures in the central body are flight-level references, which are almost always in feet - flight level 390 is 39,000 feet, not metres.

However, I should have changed the very early two instances. Sorry for any offence.

Steve - thanks for the "excellent."

It's not just me. I can't give details of the list, but Interzone has over 64% of first publishing credits from a quick Google.

As usual, a tribute to the two Andys for their great support of writers.

I was about to say that by my reckoning that makes about eight Interzone stories in the anthology. But I can't find the contents even from a slow Google, Jim...
