Issue #9

This is issue #9 of Salon Futura. As noted last month, this will be our last issue for a while as we need to secure new funding if we are to stay in business. The website will remain up in the meantime. See the Editorial for more details.

In the meantime we have plenty of good material for you. Alex Preston looks at Joe Abercrombie’s The Heroes in the light of the recent “nihilism” controversy. Sam Jordison examines one of this year’s Orange Prize nominees, from Serbian writer Téa Obreht. Our podcast looks at the often controversial subject of book covers.
