Jason Sanford, Interzone, and a Contest

Recently Jason Sanford has opened up a contest to celebrate the publication of one his stories in Interzone. Basically: help spread the word about his story and Interzone and you could win a free one year subscription to the magazine. Sweet deal, right?

Well, that's what I'm doing. If you want to participate, go here and read the "rules".

One of the things that is cool about this contest is that you get a free copy of Sanford's new story--"The Ships Like Clouds, Risen By Their Rain". While I haven't gotten a chance to read it just yet, I'm looking forward to it. I spent a week in England in March of this year and one of the things I had hoped to find while there was an issue of Interzone and some other British magazines. I came back home empty handed, unfortunately, but I still want to read Interzone. The problem has always been that in comparison to magazines printed in the states, Interzone is extremely expensive--for obvious reasons. I still want to get a subscription to it, but it's a little pricey for me, unfortunately--I've asked for it as a Christmas gift though.

If you want to know more about Interzone's history, check their about page. They've published a lot of amazing authors like Elizabeth Bear, Brian Aldiss, and Iain M. Banks. The about page has a whole list of great authors they've published. Interzone is to England what Analog, F&SF, and Asimov's are to the United States.

So you can see why I jumped on this opportunity. I'll read Mr. Sanford's story pretty soon and post again when I'm finished with a review. But this is it for now. Good luck to anyone else who decides to enter!

(Don't click the read more, there isn't any more after this!)
