Cover Art (Which I’ll put up soon!)
Fahrija Velic, BSFA Award nominated for his Interzone 201 cover (of which Richard Hawkins wrote “Blimey, this artwork is the best I’ve seen yet in any issue of Interzone; vibrant colour, well drawn, a bit vague, it almost looks like a photograph. The artist does himself proud.”) reappears with the powerful “Droid”.

The Beekeeper by Jamie Barras. It’s a traditional biopiracy expedition but on an alien planet. The natives are traditionally restless, very restless, and alien. Time for plan Bee.
