Yet another fantastic issue.

My favourite story was 'Incompatible' by Will McIntosh, but I also really enjoyed 'The Ceiling is Sky' by Suzanne Palmer, and 'In the Season of the Mango Rains' by Lavie Tidhar.

'Sleepers' by Jon Ingold and 'Her Scientifiction, Far Future, Medieval Fantasy' by Jason Sanford were both ok, but didn't do a lot for me.

And, as always, excellent art work throughout.

...ah, there's the form rejection.

Not through the whole thing yet; quite liked "Sleepers", "...Mango Rains" was not exactly a dud, but I got the feeling that there was something I missed in it. Re-reading doesn't seem to help.

Hmm...

No sign of IZ234 yet here.

Re-subscription paranoia starting to set in.

Got mine, but after reading three stories, I felt disappointed. I could not get past column one of any story before I fell asleep and I had high hopes for the story "her scientifiction far future medieval fantasy” but that just threw me right of the rails and gave up after half way past page two. The artwork was excellent and bravo to the artist but the story was too daunting to read. I have yet to read the rest, but my mind just cant take it at the moment.

Hi galaxie, I'm in Croatia at the moment - Mljet, to be exact. Beautiful place. Lucky you - you live here?

Yes I do, I live in Split. It's up the coast. It's beautiful town from Roman times (Diocletian, Roman emperor from 3rd century built his palace here when he retired, and thus founded the city).
Mljet is beautiful. And peninsula Pelješac also (you can taste some really good, strong red wines there in Potomje and Trstenik - from variety plavac mali, called Dingač and Postup - those are the names of localities on Pelješac where the vines grow).

I think that Chris Beckett visited Croatia too, because some parts of his novel The Holy Machine are settled in southern Croatia.

I remember that, really enjoyed The Holy Machine. I ended up in Mljet as part of research for a story myself, at least that's how I justified the break! Hopefully it'll appear in Black Static in the future, but either way I had a great week there. Lovely people and great food and gorgeous scenery.

Anyway, as this is the interzone thread and not Ray's Holiday thread, just thought I'd say that I once again loved Suzanne Palmer's story and hope to see more of her stuff soon. Really enjoyed 'The Ceiling is Sky'.

A strong issue; I enjoyed all the stories. My favorite was Suzanne Palmer's "The Ceiling is Sky," which I thought had superb world-building and a tight plot. I also enjoyed the believable relationship depicted is Will McIntosh's "Incompatible," which leaned toward horror. And Jason Sanford's piece was an energetic cross-genre romp.

So far, I really enjoyed Lavie Tidhar's story, as well as Jon Ingold's and Suzanne Palmer's.

Two more to read.
