I've explored the website but still have a question - how or whether Album Zutique can be ordered from the UK?
|Posted on Thursday, February 13, 2003 - 02:26 pm: |
I believe UK readers will be able to order it through Andy Richards at Cold Tonnage Books, for example. More information closer to the publication date.

Jeff is correct. Cold Tonnage will be carrying Album Zutique.

Album Zutique #1 is now shipping (official release date still the end of May, though)--see the official NS order form. The anthology includes an exclusive novel excerpt from Elizabeth Hand's forthcoming novel, Mortal Love (which will be published in 2004), as well as what I believe is really first-rate fiction from, among others, Rhys Hughes, Jeffrey Ford, Stepan Chapman, K.J. Bishop, etc.

Ah, that Album Zutique, she's purty.

Very enjoyable book. It seemed more playful than Leviathan 3 (can't compare with Lev 2 until I finish that). One or two stories didn't pique my interest, but the rest were quite qood. I particularly enjoyed the stories by Rhys Hughes (not having read him before Album Zutique, this was my introduction to his work).
I am picking up several new books based on what I read in AZ. First up are the Etched City and some stuff by Rhys. So while I liked AZ, my wallet might not like it as much.

The cover of AZ is featured on the current Locus Online home page, at their "April Books" link. http://www.locusmag.com
Its silly to note such stuff... but every little bit of exposure helps. Keep up the great work, Forrest & Jeff! The Ministry shall conquer all!

There's a great review of Album Zutique No 1 here:

Do you mean a great review of AZ, or a great review of DF?
