December 2011 (Issue 16)

Well here we are in December.
How the hell did that happen?

I’m really excited about this month’s issue as we have some really awesome fiction for y’all as well as a great interview with one of my favourite people, the scary-ass mofo Danny Trejo, (known to most of you as Machete).

We have two fantastic original pieces this month and two reprints, a great all-rounder for you with spaceships, zombies, the destruction of mankind and a ritual to commune with God.

Our first story for the month, (available on the 6th of Dec) is “God of Light”, by Domyelle Rhyse, in which a young girl attempts a last minute escape from a ritual ceremony. “Breathing Space” by Sheila Crosby (out 13th Dec), is our novelette for the month, a hard SF piece set on a mining vessel.

Next up (on the 20th of Dec) is our end-of-the-world piece for the month, “Pulse”, by Tom Jolly and we close of the issue, and the year, (on the 27th of Dec) with our cover story, a poignant look at how the other half live, in “Six Feet Above”, by Cate Gardner.

As promised, our feature interview this month is with the baddest-ass Mexi-Can ever, Mr. Danny Trejo.
Our book review this month is a year-end review of some of our story-editor, Vianne Venter’s, favourite reads for the year with particular focus on Justin Cronin’s The Passage and Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion.

And that’s it for this issue, and for 2011. We’ll be back in the first week of January with Issue 17 which features fiction from Genevieve Rose Taylor, Mel Odom, K.A. Dean and Cat Hellisen.
Till then, have a great holiday season, and an awesome new year and we’ll see you all in 2012.

Thanks, as usually, to our dedicated staff (of two) Mark Sykes and Vianne for keeping this magazine turning over from month to month, to the amazing writers who have submitted stories to us, and of course to you, our loyal readers.

Ciao for niao and merry whatsaeverything.
