This month we have a review of Baltimore: Or The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire by Mike Mignola & Christopher Golden. Drew Bittner managed to get a short interview with Chris Golden about the book.
Our artist interview this month is with Holly Bird. Holly was gracious enough to even answer my rather loaded question about the dearth of women in SF and fantasy art. I hope you'll find her answers to our questions as interesting and thought provoking as I did. Also, please do yourself a favor and visit her website to look at her artwork.
We also have the usual columns. John Berlyne fills us in on the best in SF and fantasy in the UK this month. Sam Tomaino covers the short fiction front. Rogan Marshall is back with us this month, giving us his take on the movies you should make an effort to see.
We really enjoy hearing from our readers and we now have response forms after each review. Or if your comments are more general over the entire issue feel free to send a letter to the editor (editor at sfrevu.com).
Read on for our usual messages and announcements:
While we're happy to have a core of great reviewers for SFRevu, we get more books each month than we've got readers for and we'd like to have more. If you have a great desire to review SF/Fantasy for no pay but the glory of a by-line, write to us at editor (at) sfrevu.com telling us a bit about yourself and send a 500 word (or so) review of a book that you have recently read. We should be able to get back to you within the month.
We started a News column last month. If you have a news item or announcement that you think would be of interest to readers of SF send to: editor (at) sfrevu.com.
We'd like to add a convention calendar to our magazine. We've made a start. However, we don't have time to scour the internet looking for what's happening in the SF/Fantasy arena. Please send us your convention listings. Send to: editor (at) sfrevu.com.
Letters to the Editor(s):
We'd like to hear from you ... yes you. What do you think of our magazine? How could we make it better? Do you like our reviews? What are your thoughts on the mystery genre and its subgenres? Write to us at editor (at) sfrevu.com.
