Thanks for that folks I will post the images in the next few days.
The nationality question was merely to see if/how that affected any answers but it does depend on getting lots of replies.
If we change our policy then maybe it is self censorship but we have not done that. It maybe that very few care either way and such covers don't register as contentious.
On a purely commercial basis perhaps we should take more notice of the objectors as they will stop reading and Interzone would lose sales. Those who like this type of image might never become aware of such a policy but if they did maybe they would continue reading/buying anyway.
Zeorymer0015 have a look the guidelines for artwork submissions (TTA Press
) and if you have not seen the TTA IZ check out the IZ 207 and 208 threads on the TTAPress messageboard to see some interior artwork, or even better buy a copy. Note Interzone is now printed in full colour.
Dr Atomic on the absence of evidence/evidence of absence principle
we can only say that absence of objections may be good news or evidence of apathy, but I take your point.
Nesacat I have not heard of anyone removing or obliterating cover or interior images or censoring the magazine's text but it would be interesting to know if it does happen.
