Fishermen and Far and Deep were enjoyable reads for me, but I'm afraid I didn't find any gems this time. Not going to stop me diving for pearls.

There's a review of the fiction in me blog, if you want the whole story: http://dylan-fox.blogspot.com/2009/04/interzone-221-fiction-reviewed.html
I've had the damn thing for months, so I thought I might as well try and find a use for it.

Rich Horton reviews Interzone 221 in Locus 581 (the June issue) and pulls out two of the stories for mention. He says that Bruce Sterling’s Black Swan is “gritty and savvy”, and “Paul Berger’s Home Again is also nice work [...] Berger very sharply sets up a stinger at the close.”

Gardner Dozois reviews Interzone 221 in Locus 582 (the July issue)and says, “The best story in Interzone 221, by a considerable margin, is “Black Swan“, by veteran cyberpunk author Bruce Sterling, which expertly spins us through a gyre of alternate worlds, all featuring well-thought-out and plausible alternate Europes; this is politically savvy, bitingly cynical, and infused with Sterling’s trademark deapan wit – a lot of fun.” He also has much to say about Will McIntosh’s A Clown Escapes From Circustown, citing it as an example of the ‘comic inferno’ type of story. “This is not my favorite type of SF, but at least the examples of it that Interzone have been running are pretty well-crafted. [...] if you can suspend your disbelief to get past all of that, McIntosh tells a satisfying and even rather traditional story…”
