October 2009 IROSF

The October 2009 edition of the Internet Review of Science Fiction is out. Highlights include the two pieces giving the issue a more than usually cosmopolitan touch, specifically Angela Slatter's chat with four Australian writers (Deborah Biancotti, Kaaron Warren, Peter Ball and Jason Fischer) about the apocalypse, and especially the eco-apocalypse, as seen from their side of the world, and an interview with Paris-based Aliette De Bodard (whose stories I have in the past been pleased to review for Tangent Online and The Fix).

Also particularly deserving of mention are M.T. Verma's convention report from ReaderCon 20, the inauguration of Bram Stoker nominee Nicholas Kaufmann's horror column for the publication ("Dead Air") with this month's piece "At the Mountains of Perception", Gary Westfahl on why we don't see more people having fun in science fiction, Alex Deuben's review of the latest League of Extraordinary Gentlemen graphic novel (Alan Moore's already up to number four) and of course, Lois Tilton's always worthwhile short fiction round-up.
