International Speculative Fiction #5 available

International Speculative Fiction is a bit shaky in its appearances, but when each issue is the result of voluntary work the praiseworthy efforts of the magazine’s team might be trampled by day to day events. However, the most important thing is that this magazine continues to exist, with its latest issue, the 5th, released the past week-end. In this issue we can read two short stories, “Two Worlds” by the Italian writer Francesco Verso and “Atomic Heart” by the Portuguese writer Manuel Alves, the Hugo Award nominated novelette “The Boy Who Cast No Shadow” by the Dutch writer Thomas Olde Heuvelt, plus a series of non-fiction including an article by Hunter Liguore, “Social Science Fiction”, a round-up of news from around the speculative world gathered by Nas Hedron, a review by Sean Wright of the anthology edited by Dean Francis Alfar and Nikki Alfar, “The Best of Philippine Speculative Fiction 2005-2010”, and an interview made by Saul Bottcher with the Spanish artist Sergi Brosa, responsible for this issue’s cover art. The 5th issue of International Speculative Fiction magazine is available for free in PDF format, with the epub and mobi files due to be ready for download very soon.
