It’s been a long wait, but the preview for Black Gate issue 10 is up. The magazine itself is due out in March.
As always, I’m impressed by Chuck Lukacs’ take on Morlock. Also, I wonder what the horse is thinking about the titular book, which was not something I gave any thought to before I saw Chuck’s art.
I’m looking forward to this issue for a lot of reasons, though: the Harry James Connolly story looks like a riot; there’s a new Judith Berman story set in the fascinating world of her earlier “The Poison Well”; and Howard Jones is pitching in with one of his Dabir and Asim stories: I’ve read three of these so far, and they’ve all been great historical fantasy.
Rich Horton’s column this issue is about sf/f magazines in the 1970s which was not, as we know, the Golden Age of Science Fiction, but it was the decade when I was a teenager, just discovering the genre magazines, so the column should be a fun read.
