DH56Dark Horizons #56, edited by Stephen Theaker, was sent out last month to members of the British Fantasy Society.

This 128pp bumper issue featured stories by Val Gryphin, Ian Hunter, Jim Steel, Niall Boyce, Philip Meckley, Rafe McGregor, Ralph Robert Moore, Patrick Whitaker and Andrew Knighton, interviews with Brian Stableford and Simon Bestwick, and poetry by Charles Christian, Jan Edwards and Peter Coleborn, Diana Lewis, Allen Ashley and Ian Hunter, and illustrations by Inna Hansen, Mark Pexton and Howard Watts, who was responsible for the lovely cover.

The guest editorial, on gender bias in fantasy and the BFS in particular, came from Jenny Barber, while Mike Barrett provided sundry observations on Arkham House.
