This is not quite a repeat of the Interzone Home Page announcement
Yes I will be selling the magazines and books (including Tony's) there but as I cannot drive and park near that venue I'll be lugging them around in a suitcase. So stocks will be limited and you can help me reduce the burden by letting me know in advance if you know you want specific, recent, issues of BS or IZ. (or Crimewave etc)

I'm told these lunchtime events are normally poetry readings so hopefully we'll find a new audience for IZ and Tony.
A chance for Manchester’s SF magazine starved millions to get their hands on the hard stuff.
We have organised a lunchtime reading by Interzone alumni Tony Ballantyne at the Central Library (St Peter’s Square) in the 2nd floor Reception Roomon Wednesday 11 June 1-2pm.
Roy will be selling Interzone and Black Static and a few books in the room before and after the event and will try to be set up there by 12:30. Entry is free but the books and magazines aren’t, though prices tend to be less than cover.
Recent converts to IZ will not have seen any stories from Tony unless they started before September 2003, when ‘The Ugly Truth’ appeared in Interzone 191, or are picking up back issues from the David Pringle era.
Tony’s first SF appeared in Interzone 138, December 1998, and by 2003 his appearances had risen to 12 and he was firmly part of Interzone’s second generation of British SF authors. His first novel Recursion was published July 2004 and two more had appeared by May 2007; Capacity and Divergence. Parts of all these were based on ideas first explored in Interzone.
