‘Plague Birds’ by Jason Sanford has been announced as co-winner of this year’s Interzone Readers’ Poll. The other winning story was ‘Flying in the Face of God’ by Nina Allen. This is Jason’s third win or tie in the poll and you can download a copy of ‘Plague Birds’ from his site. You can also find out more about the sequel which will be published soon.
The new Barnes & Noble ebook reader has been announced, and as expected it’s a touchscreen e-ink device. The new Nook is like a Kindle 3 with a touchscreen instead of that infuriating keyboard. Now if only I could get hold of one outside the US. A similar device, the Kobo eReader Touch has also been announced. It’ll be easier to get hold of this one in the UK as WHSmith are stocking it.
‘Never Never Stories’, the first science fiction & fantasy collection from Jason Sanford is now available as an ebook for the Kindle, Nook and iPhone / iPad. This is the second ebook I’ve created for Jason, following on from his novella ‘Sublimation Angels’. The collection contains stories previously published in ‘Interzone’, ‘Analog Science Fiction and Fact’, ‘Apex Magazine’, ‘Ikarie’, and ‘Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show’, amongst others. It also contains never-before published material.
