At Strange Horizons

My review of Julie E. Czerneda and Rob St. Martin's original fantasy anthology Ages of Wonder went online today at Strange Horizons. (It was a favorable one, incidentally.)

Also of particular interest in SH's reviews this month (besides the aforementioned translation of the Urdu epic Hoshruba): Paul Raven on Walter Jon Williams's This is Not a Game, Niall Harrison on Nancy Kress's Steal Across the Sky, David Schwartz's review of the new Pixar movie Up, Jonathan McCalmont's review of Bernard Beckett's Genesis, and Alvaro Zinos-Amaro's review of Alexander Irvine's futuristic tale of business-run-amok Buyout.

There's also a pair of reviews of new steampunk tales with Michael Levy offering his take on Chris Wooding's Retribution Falls and Duncan Lawie discussing Robert Masello's Blood and Ice.
Those whose tastes run to that sort of tale might also want to check out Richard Larson on the new Ann and Jeff Vandermeer-edited anthology Fast Ships, Black Sails-whose previous work, of course, included last year's Steampunk, considered in a double-review in SH last year (along with Nick Gevers's Extraordinary Engines) by Duncan Lawie, and Robert Bee in the August 2008 edition of Internet Review Of Science Fiction. (Fans of the subgenre, incidentally, should be sure to check out next month's edition of IROSF for my piece on the subject.)

And for the zombie apocalypse fans, there is Hallie O'Donovan's review of Carrie Ryan's The Forest of Hands and Teeth.
