I’m a big fan of Murky Depths magazine. It’s a classy publication and won the British Fantasy Awards – Best Magazine/Periodical 2010, so other people think it’s cool too. I was really pleased when they bought my story, Mirrorwalk, for publication. It comes out in Issue 16, which is due in April and is available for pre-order now. Man, I love to see my name on the cover of a magazine or book I really dig. I can’t see that ever getting old.
There’s a lot that makes Murky Depths a great mag. There’s the obvious high quality fiction that it’s based around, but there’s also original art commissioned to accompany each story. Apparently my story is being illustrated by Rick Fairlamb, so I can’t wait to see what he’s come up with. Check out his site and you’ll see why I’m so excited about that – his artwork is superb. On top of that there are interviews, articles and book and movie reviews.
In issue 16 you’ll find:
