Good day to be a magazine junky

It’s a good day for this magazine junky. We received our shipments of Fantasy & Science Fiction, The Third Alternative, On Spec, and Weird Tales. Should be plenty to keep me busy in there.

So what are your favorite genre magazines?

New Tim Powers Book

Ok, so it’s not a novel, but I’m thrilled to say that Tachyon Publications is publishing a collection of Tim Power’s stories called Strange Itineraries. Added it to the site today, just click on the title to get more details.

Rumor has it he has a novel in the works with a hoped for 2005 release, but still no news on that one.

Yes, I’m a bit late posting this. Blame the holidays. By the way, packages shipped media mail are not likely to reach you by Christmas. If you need something quick, go with priority mail.

Those of you waiting for Caitlin R. Kiernan’s THE DRY SALVAGES in the unsigned trade hardcover, it’s finally here. The trade edition is officially sold out at the publisher, but we have plenty. Good story… I read mine last night. Preorders are shipping now.

Also in from Subterranean is ASTRAY by Amber Benson and Christopher Golden. This is a signed edition of 750. Preorders for those ship today.

The last new arrival that I want to point out is ANGEL ROAD by Steven Savile. Steve’s a great author that should be more widely read. The cover art for this is pretty cool too. Preorders for those shipped yesterday. Sorry for the delay, but it took a long time for these to cross the Atlantic.

Limited edition of Perdido Street Station by China Mieville

Well it appears that two China Mieville limited editions will be published next year. (KING RAT was announced earlier by Earthling Publications.)

PERDIDO STREET STATION by China Mieville
To be published by Night Shade Books in the Summer of 2005.

Features:

* Four interior color plates by the illustrator
* Additional interior illustrations by China Mieville
* Limited to 700 numbered copies signed by the author and the illustrator
* Original dustjacket artwork

(More details)

This is certainly a book that is well-deserving of a limited edition.
