According to Writers' News, with issue 223, Interzone has now published more issues than any other British sci-fi magazine.

Of course you probably knew this already :D

Congrats, and long may it last...

That's only counting fiction magazines, though...

I thought IZ exceeded the New Worlds UK SF Mag record with 217 but it depends what you count/define as magazines.

Our US peers are way ahead on years and issue counts.

Yeah, but the Americans award themselves two issue numbers for their 'double' issues, which means they count twelve issues per year instead of ten.

If Interzone can count all of the magazines that amalgamated with it, such as REM and Million, then the numbers also go up. And there are the Interzone anthologies, some of which published original fiction. So it goes.

Mind you, New Worlds published quite a few anthologies that fall outside its own numbering system, and it also amalgamated with SF Impulse/Science Fantasy. It's worse than stamp collecting, this business.
