March definitely came in like a lion last night. We had a bit of a problem with our database -- thus delaying our going live at midnight. Such are the trials of an electronic age; but we're up and running and have a great issue for you this month.
Our interview this month is with Barth Anderson, author of The Magician and the Fool. This novel is so convoluted and mind-blowing as to make you feel like you've had a gallon of high-test coffee. This is definitely a writer to watch. I'll now have to get his The Patron Saint of Plagues since I missed it when it came out last year.
Our reviewers have been busily reading and reviewing so we've got quite a list of reviews. Due to a chance meeting at World Fantasy, Douglas A. Anderson submitted a review of What Can Be Saved from the Wreckage? James Branch Cabell in the Twenty-first Century by Michael Swanwick.
Of course, we also have John Berlyne's column on UK Books and selected reviews. Sam Tomaino gives his opinion of short fiction. Rogan Marshall will be back next month with a look at media in theaters and on DVDs. However, we also have some media reviews from other SFRevu staffers to keep you informed while Rogan takes a well-earned break.
We also have a new addition to our staff: Terry Somerville volunteered to help out with the copy editing and proofreading. I'm sure you'll see our grammar and punctuation getting a bit more polished over the next issues. We're lucky to have Terry -- especially since he loves SF.
Now for our usual announcements.
