Happy New Year, New Review at Tangent, Year's Best at Strange Horizons

Happy New Year, everybody. Here we all are now in the year 2010-a year that doesn't quite have the futuristic cachet that 2000 or 2001 did, but still has a good bit going for it in that regard.

During the Christmas-New Year's stretch, my review of the August 2009 Interzone went up at Tangent Online, a special issue devoted to Hugo-nominated short story writer Dominic Green-so that it actually carries three of his short stories among its five pieces, while also presenting Green as the subject of the issue's interview, well worth a read in itself. (One of these, "Butterfly Bomb," seems likely to rate a good bit of attention from awards-presenters and anthologizers.)

Additionally, Strange Horizons has kicked off its first edition of the year with the latest installment in its annual round-up of the "Year in Review," to which I of course contributed. It is well worth a look from anyone looking for a good overview of 2009 in science fiction, across the media spectrum, because of the breadth and variety the different reviewers bring to it.
