Interzone issue 246 reviews

The May-June 2013 issue of Interzone (which features my story ‘You First Meet the Devil at a Church Fete’) has been out long enough for there to be a few reviews of it on the internets. Here are some snippets concerning my story.

From Anthony G. Williams at SFF blog:

Winner of the James White Award for new writers, this is a bizarre story (factually based, according to Wikipedia) concerning the short career of Stuart Sutcliffe, an early member of The Beatles pop group, told from Sutcliffe’s viewpoint but in the second person.

From DF Lewis’s Gestalt Real-Time Reviews:

…A fine example of the ‘synchronised shards of random truth and fiction’. The Minotaur legend earlier transfigured, now the Faust Legend. The ultimate Icarus legend as a ‘dying fall’ in music, I feel. It leaves a good thought-provoking aftertaste, as we wonder which Beatle is still to reap the ‘tontine’.

From Lois Tilton’s review at Locus:

It’s hard to think that a story about Sutcliffe’s tragically short life could be very happy, but this comes pretty close. Still, there’s no real fantastic content here, or much real creation.

From Steve Rogerson’s review

This sent a shiver down my spine.
