Read 2020 - Interzone #277

This is how far behind I (we) have gotten with our reading. Thanks to number generator, I finally got to read issue 277 of Interzone, which was published at the end of 2018. To my shame, there are even older copies on my to-read-shelf. Forgive me, Andy.

My favourite reads this issue were:

Territory: Blank by Aliya Whiteley (a burgeoning superstar). Territory: Blank is told in a series of fragmented diary entries in a future world where there are hungry things.  "I press through it, wait for the mouths to come for me too."

Singles' Day by Samantha Murray. This is the story of four girls in different parts of an overcrowded Earth, who are offered a chance to go to a new world, but will have to leave much behind. The horror part of my brain kept expecting something awful to happen. "We take our stories with us. We take all of our past."
