The book reviews are excellent and I’m keen to get hold of the latest release from Michael R. Fletcher. There is a terrific interview with fantasy author Michael J. Sullivan, one that I found to be really insightful, particularly as Sullivan straddles the line between being traditionally published and self-publishing. He comes across as passionate about the genre, knowledgable about the business and his writing insights provide great reading. Similarly with the piece by Aliette De Bodard which has some interesting and useful writing tips and there is another good interview with Richard A. Knaak. The questions are clearly well thought out and are not generic, so great work.
All said, this is a great magazine for fans of the genre and if you fancy unsheathing your sword and getting knee deep in grit then Grimdark Magazine isn’t a bad place to start finding out what the genre has to offer.
4/5 bloodied knives from the Grim(dark) Reader.
The highlights of the issue would be "Red Glass" by Anna Smith Spark, which is a story set in her newly released and highly regarded COURT OF BROKEN KNIVES. There is also "A Ring to Rule them all" by Luke Skull that carries his usual level of skill as one of the best grimdark authors currently out there.
Article-wise, "Brainstorming and Plotting" by Aliette de Bodard is a nice little bit of advice for writers and has a lot of tricks to help those who want to make their own dark fantast storyline. For me, though, the best part of the magazine is actually the interviews with Richard K. Knaak and Michael J. Sullivan.
Neither author of who I normally associate with grimdark but who have an infectious enthusiasm about their fantasy work which is hard to ignore. Both talk about projects I am anxious to buy copies of and also their experiences in the fantasy publishing market. Michael J. Sullivan, in particular, is the self-published fantasy author's measuring stick and one we all could do well to immitate. I will say I found it disappointing he's never read the Lankhmar series, though.
There's also a review of both SWARM AND STEEL by Michael R. Fletcher and FAITHLESS by Graham Austin-King. Both of which I've read and agree with the excellent reviews thereof.
