After more than a year’s hiatus, SPAG is back with a new issue, in a new hosting space. For those who aren’t familiar with it, SPAG is a long-standing (but occasionally on-vacation) IF community zine with editorials, interviews, and, in the old days, lots of reviews. As IFDB and personal blogs collated at Planet-IF have become review hubs, SPAG’s review content has dropped off a bit: the new editorial direction is moving largely away from reviews. But SPAG is still a useful place for longer articles, interviews, and discussions, so it’s great to see it make a reappearance.
The current issue features interviews with the three top-placing authors from IF Comp, an editorial from the new editor Dannii Willis, and long-form articles about shared-world creation and about detective IF as a genre.
