Hi,

I noticed a mention of a possible electronic version of Interzone on the Asimov's forum dated May.

Is this likely to ever happen?

Cool. Be nice if the Moorcock issue was possible, too, but good news anyway.

Progress

Crimewave 9 is now on sale at Fictionwise.

Go to http://www.fictionwise.com, where, at the moment, it says “New MultiFormat Publishers! Fictionwise welcomes TTA Press” near the top. Follow the link and you’ll see Crimewave. You can see the ebook description page at http://www.fictionwise.com/eBooks/eBook51106.htm

Crimewave is a ‘MultiFormat’ ebook which means it is unencrypted and available in a variety of formats for handheld devices and computers. See http://www.fictionwise.com/help/eBook-formats-FAQ.htm the Fictionwise FAQ. Fictionwise have formats for various ebook readers, PDAs, mobile phones and laptops and I think purchasing any one format gives you access to all. If I’m wrong about that I sure our electronic editions editor, Pete Bullock, will correct me.

At present the e edition is not available direct from the TTA or T3A site.

If you order one let us know what you think.

Cool. More to come?

Is that a mystery type mag? Never bought one of those, I will go have a look.

Checkout the Crimewave 'category' at http://ttapress.com/category/crimewave/new-issues/ Scroll down for CW9

and yes we hope to publish more ebooks.

Please let us know what you think - how easy it is to use the Fictionwise service and read the ebook. It is difficult for us to test all the possibilities as we don't have examples of each e reader.

Ok.

Fictionwise is a good service in my experience, the bookshelf is useful, you can download everything, and doing the multiformat is a wise choice for sure.

I have a Palm, so can let you know how that one looks.

I am looking at the Palm version now, which is what I usually use. Looks to be exactly the same quality as Asimov's/FSF/Analog etc., so no problem at all there.

Good work.

If Interzone can be done the same way, should all be good.

Enjoy the reading

Our Electronic Editions Editor, Pete Bullock, has organised another way to enjoy Interzone. Readers can have instant access worldwide to e-Editions Interzone at Fictionwise.

Beginning with Fictionwise’s regular release of new titles on Monday, December 17, 2007, readers can purchase single issues or a one-year subscription. The eMagazines will debut with the three latest issues of Interzone: 211, 212, & 213. Future issues will appear alongside the arrival of the print edition. At this time, there we cannot offer any issues before 211.

Fictionwise offers a wide array of eBook formats, which now include formats for the Sony Reader and Amazon Kindle (with wireless download option).

Inside each e-Edition of Interzone you will find the complete text and artwork found in the print edition and the e-Edition will be formatted so that it can be easily read on virtually any electronic device.

New issues automatically appear in your personal Fictionwise bookshelf when they become available, and an email notification follows. You can start with the issue of your choice. Subscriptions are convenient and reduce costs for overseas subscribers!

Don't forget a one-year Interzone subscription, eMagazine or print, makes a great gift and there is still time before Christmas as the next issue is due 8th Jan.

If you order a copy or a subscription from Fictionwise let us know what you think.

Prices are $4.99 an issue or $23.95 for a one-year subscription.
We will put up a direct link when it comes on line.

Sure, will do. Was considering getting the Moorcock issue, but the whole order from overseas thing, and the UK, no less - but definitely will get that one, at least.

Subscription is 6 issues then, going by that price?

If the format will be like 'Crimewave' should be fine, I'd imagine, but I will check it out.

The only one I have ever seen is a 1997 issue, in the past.

Fictionwise, in California, work on Pacific Standard Time, about eight hours after UK time now, so Interzone is likely to be available on Fictionwise from after 4pm but maybe not until Tuesday.

Yeah, they are always behind.

Just started to look at it, in Palm and Mobipocket formats, seems fine.

However, when you import in to Mobipocket Reader desktop the title comes out as 'Interzone Science Fiction and F', so you can't tell what issue it is at first glance.

Minor technical problem, presumably easy to fix.
