Guy Haley from the UK-based glossy science fiction title Death Ray has just sent in a shameless plug for his magazine.
Guy says, "Hi there! What with Death Ray 20 just hitting the shops (20 issues! And we're working on our 21st! How did that happen so quickly?). I thought I'd drop you a line to remind everyone out there that Death Ray is the only SF 'media' magazine (by which I mean it's about films and stuff, among other things) that actually carries short SF fiction. Some of these are reprints of top tales, but a great many of our stories are entirely original pieces. In Death Ray 20, for example, we have two wholly new shorts."
"'Monkey Suit' is a brand new piece of fiction from Alaistair Reynolds. Set aboard a Lighthugger spacecraft in his Revelation Space universe, it is a strange and ghostly tale. Our second is from Eric Brown, who has provided us with 'Bengal Blues'. This takes place aboard Bengal Station, Brown's massive tropical spaceport, and is the latest in the adventures of telepathic PI, Jeff Vaughan. This story, unpublished before, forms the kernel of Brown's upcoming novel, Cosmopath."
"We have at least one story in every issue of Death Ray, so if you like reading SF as well as reading about it, Death Ray really is the magazine for you.
Death Ray 20 is available from all good newsagents and other news vendors in the UK, and can be purchased from selected outlets worldwide."
