Aurealis #44 Aurealis #44
reviewed by Rich Horton
The latest issue of Aurealis is the 20th Anniversary issue. One highlight is a memoir by cofounder Dirk Strasser of the circumstances around the founding and early history of the magazine -- very entertaining. Patricia L. O'Neill's science article, "Underbelly -- A Feast for the Census II," looks at some of the critters we harbor internally. The book review column is former editor Keith Stevenson's farewell, and there is an editorial from current editor Stuart Mayne.

Aurealis, #43 Aurealis, #43
reviewed by Rich Horton
In the latest issue of the now venerable Australian magazine Aurealis, there are the usual features: Patricia L. O'Neill's  science column (this one, "Xtreme Science: A Feast for the Census", is about the huge colonies of little beasties we can host), an interview with Trudi Canavan (conducted by Kate Forsyth), and book reviews by Keith Stevenson. But Rich's focus is on the fiction.

Aurealis, #42 Aurealis, #42
reviewed by Rich Horton
Patricia O'Neill's science article, "Private I," is an interesting look at how our sensory perceptions of the world are unique to ourselves (and how they differ, in a more extreme way, from those of other species). The book review column is by Keith Stevenson and there is an interview with Greg Egan, conducted by Russell Blackford. Rich thought this was a particularly good issue for the fiction.

Aurealis, #41 Aurealis, #41
reviewed by Rich Horton
The latest issue of Aurealis is again edited by Stuart Mayne. Patricia O'Neill's science article this time is about diseases, scary new diseases that might seem science-fictional but are only too real, including Ebola, AIDS, and bird flu. O'Neill's angle is informed by SF, giving it a nice perspective. There are also book reviews by Keith Stevenson (SF) and Kate Forsyth (Fantasy).

Aurealis #40 Aurealis #40
reviewed by Rich Horton
Aurealis usually mixes SF and Fantasy fairly evenly, but this time around all the stories are Fantasy. The non-fiction includes and interesting science article from Patricia L. O'Neill -- here lamenting the failure of the future we have to live up to the future that SF promised us. (That is, this is another "what happened to my flying car?" article -- and nicely done, though O'Neill explicitly denies caring that her car doesn't fly.) Book reviews are by Keith Stevenson (SF) and Kate Forsyth (Fantasy).

Aurealis #38/39 Aurealis #38/39
reviewed by Rich Horton
This long-running Australian magazine soldiers on with a thick double issue, this time edited by Stephen Higgins and Stuart Mayne. It features an editorial by Mayne, a science article by Patricia O'Neill speculating on why SETI hasn't discovered any alien races, interviews with Elizabeth Moon, Alan Lee, and the entire Aurealis Team, a number of book reviews (including Bill Congreve's final column), and a generous fifteen stories.

Aurealis #37 Aurealis #37
reviewed by Rich Horton
The latest issue of this long-running Australian magazine is edited by Stephen Higgins and Michael Pryor. It features an editorial by Higgins, a science article by Patricia O'Neill about our food habits, and potential alien food habits, and two review columns (SF reviewed by Bill Congreve, Fantasy by Kate Forsyth). And seven stories.

Aurealis #32 Aurealis #32
reviewed by Matthew Cheney
An Australian fantasy and science fiction magazine, it includes fiction, interviews, essays, reviews, and market reports. Issue 32 contains six stories and a variety of non-fiction. The non-fiction is, overall, stronger than the fiction, with good interviews with HarperCollins editor Stephanie Smith, literary agent Selwa Anthony, and writer Lynn Flewelling. There are articles on computer games and war games, the scientific possibilities of enhancing human evolution, and even a thoughtful essay on gun control. The magazine often reads as if it is aimed at aspiring writers who are just discovering the world of publishing.
