Fog had hidden Haida Gwaii from outsiders since the Beginning, from the time of Raven, until Captain Cook arrived in the eighteenth century. It was good of the captain, thought Wilson Gwaeskun, to discover his Haida ancestors who never knew they were lost.

Murder it is, Cristina de Ane thought as she gripped the condemned woman’s face. The woman, Jennery Flats, stood five hands higher than Crista, an impossibly tall human whose every movement flowed to grace like doves climbing the highest reaches of sky. Not that Crista could mistake Jennery for a dove. Yes, her face was covered in downy grey-brown feathers. But her gaze burned to the brightness of eagles – orange eyes which glared at Crista with both defiance and sadness.

The Metaphor by Fiona Moore

It’s back. It’s back. I know it’s back, from the compulsive itch in my head, so I throw off the fur blankets, gasping at the feel of cold stone floor on feet (while wondering where the hell the rug has got to), then hurry into my woollen underclothes, my equally woollen trousers, hat and sweater, then, finally, an outer layer of fur parka, trousers, hood, goggles, neck-warmer and gloves. I grab my rifle, though God alone knows why, it’s useless against it and, when I’m doing the rounds, I’ve got no time to go hunting, but I sling it over my shoulder anyway. I guess it makes me feel better. I tell myself it’s in case I get a chance to bag a rabbit on the way. 

The Fall of the City of Silver by Jon Ingold

If you look long enough, you will hear me speak, and this is what I will say: here I lie, stranger, surrounded by four things that were mine, four things that tell the story of how I came to be here and of how my city fell.

Tethered by Mercurio D. Rivera

On the shore of Ontario Lacus on Southern Titan, Cara molded castles from the windblown sediment that served as sand. Her parents stood at the threshold of their shelter in the distance, chatting with their sponsor, the Wergen responsible for transporting her family from Earth. Cara lay on her stomach while the methane waves lapped against the shore, tickling her bare feet.

Lifetime Subscriptions:

Lifetime subscription available again now for Interzone, on exactly the same terms as before: the amount you pay is equivalent to ten years’ subscription at the current rate, and a lifetime is defined as “one which lasts either the lifetime of the subscriber or the lifetime of the magazine”. This also applies to sister magazine Black Static, and there is also an option to take out a slightly cheaper joint lifetime subscription to both.

These lifetime subscriptions have now been added to the order form in the centre of both magazines, and to this website's shop. It goes without saying that such long term subscriptions are of great benefit and support to the magazines, so many thanks to those of you who take up the offer.


How To Buy:

Interzone is available in good shops in the UK, USA (including Barnes & Noble) and many other countries. If your local shop doesn't stock it they should be able to order it in for you so please don't hesitate to ask them. You can also buy the magazine from a variety of online retailers. The best thing though – for you and for us – is to follow the links on this page to our own shop and take out a subscription.

If you enjoy Interzone please help spread the word by blogging about the magazine and encouraging other people to subscribe. Thank you for your support!


E-Edition (An Apology):

Normally a version of each new issue of Interzone (and sister magazine Black Static) could be downloaded from Fictionwise. Unfortunately we have failed to keep this process up to date and are now several months behind. If this has affected you please accept our apologies and reassurances that we are trying to fix the problem. Keep checking this website and forum, or our Facebook page, for updates. Thanks for your patience!
