Like a bowl of cold gruel or a miserable lump of coal in your Christmas stocking, the December Ansible marks the beginning of the official “Bah! Humbug!” season. Meanwhile Ansible Editions has launched the first ebook (expanded from the print editions) of Yvonne Rousseau’s The Murders at Hanging Rock.
As Oscar Wilde so memorably said, the only thing worse than being in Ansible is not being in Ansible. Especially the November 2016 issue.
That is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons ARGH I CAN WRITE NO MORE FOR IT IS ANSIBLE 351!
It’s too hot here to say anything witty about this month’s issue, the suspiciously round-numbered Ansible 350.
The latest addition to the ever-expanding Langford ebook catalogue is a slightly expanded version of Starcombing from 2009. This includes (amid much other nonfiction) my almost famous SFX magazine columns from 2005 to 2009. The 2005 collection The SEX Column and Other Misprints contains the first 128 of these columns (1995-2005) plus other SFX features, and it too has been expanded with extra material as a 2016 ebook.
The title says it all: that massive 2003 critical collection Up Through an Empty House of Stars: Reviews and Essays 1980-2002 has an ebook edition at last, nominally published in April but available now.
