I am not particularly fond of magazines, especially genre magazines and have in the past only ever subscribed to a handful of mags:
National GeographicEmpire Magazine
And more recently to The Writers Forum. But I've got a new addiction.
SFX magazine - they are over at http://www.sfx.co.uk/ and besides the fact that they are genre encompassing, they are blindingly enthusiastic about sci-fi, fantasy, horror and the other spec fic genres, which is pretty darn cool. They also review movies, dvd's AND books. Yep. How much cooler is that than any other mag out there at the moment? And unlike others, it's not just ONE page of books that they throw at you, oh no, there is at least five or more pages. Pretty excellent, ay?
In an effort to yet again stave off the horror of picking up legal papers to study this morning, I pootled around the SFX website and discovered this!
I would heartily recommend this to anyone who is a fan of sci fi, fantasy or who plainly likes to read well written articles about the people who write the books we enjoy reading!
And just for Gareth, there is an opus to the grand master, David Gemmell...G, if you are prepared to send me that review soon, I could conceive buying you your own copy and posting it onto you in the wilds of Manchester...
