A few SF/F publication notes

Interzone has announced the contents of issue 220. It looks like a great line-up of authors, and I'm pleased to see a story by Eugie Foster in the issue. I should also note the amazing cover by Adam Tredowski. Wow! There's already talk on the Interzone forum about publishing the cover as a poster.

In other news, Rich Horton has announced the contents of Unplugged, an anthology of the best web-published fiction of the year. According to this post on his website, the selected stories are:

  • Beth Bernobich, "Air and Angels" (Subterranean, Spring)
