New Magazine

The review below will appear in my column in a future issue of ASIMOV'S. But I figured it would be good to get the word out even sooner.

Being present at the birth of a new magazine is always an exciting moment. So bop on over to the MURKY DEPTHS website ( and sign on for an exciting journey. Issue #1 (perfect-bound, £6.99, 82 pages, ISSN 1752-5586) tidily illustrates the philosophy of editor-publisher Terry Martin, which is to blend shortish pieces of “dark speculative” prose with arresting B&W graphics, and to also feature full-blown comics as well. One of the latter such opens the issue, with both script and art by our own Richard Calder. Contributors such as Jon Courtenay Grimwood and Lavie Tidhar keep the standards high, as do the lesser-known names. Slickly and sensitively designed, this is a magazine with a clear vision of how to jazz up our often visually staid field.
