August, see Rilo Kiley song below. Isn’t it time for a cold drink? Shouldn’t we sit under a tree, read a book? Hmm.

Since we just got bombarded with a ton of new magazines I though a quick survey of what’s new would be worth while. Looks like it’s Kat Howard‘s month!

Locus has an interview with one of the hottest new writers this year, Ann Leckie, whose debut novel Ancillary Justice has been sweeping awards as well as an interview with Ian McDonald and a column by Kameron Hurley with a great title: “People Don’t Buy Books They Don’t Know About (Even Great Ones).”

Clarkesworld MagazineNew stories from James Patrick Kelly, Caroline M. Yoachim, Kat Howard, and Joseph Tomaras, and reprints from Naomi Novik and Ian R. MacLeod.

Lightspeed: New stories by An Owomoyela, E. Catherine Tobler, Tahmeed Shafiq, and Kat Howard, along with reprints by Gardner Dozois, David I. Masson, Ken Liu, Gwyneth Jones, and a novella by Sherwood Smith.

Bastion Science Fiction Magazine brings stories from Clint Spivey, Emma Osborne, Mary Alexandra Agner, William Delman, J. Daniel Batt, Frank Smith, Jared W. Cooper, and Garrick Fincham.

Nightmare Magazine has dark fiction from Desirina Boskovich and Ben Peek, and reprints from Tia V. Travis and Simon Strantzas, and an excerpt from the novel Proud Parents, by Kristopher Rufty.

Interzone brings us James Van Pelt, Andrew Hook, Neil Williamson, D.J. Cockburn, E. Catherine Tobler, and Caren Gussuff, and much in the way of nonfiction.

Meanwhile, dropping quarterly, The Dark has stories from Stephen Graham Jones, Octavia Cade, Emily B. Cataneo, and Darja Malcolm-Clarke.

If that isn’t enough from you this week, I want to hear about it!
