Rejoice! A new Death Ray awaits you and your visual organs in your nearest news outlet, and it is a mighty one indeed.
Magic and the final frontier, two flavours of awesomeness for you, but there is a third, slightly more rancid, strand – horror! Death Ray suffers a major zombie outbreak this issue, with minor infestations in the features and book sections. Who other could we turn to to aid us in our hour of need than George A. Romero, wellspring of the entire zombie apocalypse genre? With zombies and a look behind the scenes at scary effects from Reaper and Supernatural, we've got all three points of the fantastical genre triangle covered this month.
Get an insight into comics with DC's creative head honcho, Dan Didio, and a look at the work of up-and-coming comics artist Mike Perkins. Sneak into the minds of Dan Akroyd, Anton Yelchin and Andy Serkis in New Gods, read in reverent silence as SF luminaries (and the Death Ray team) climb upon the giant soapbox of Deep Thought, uncover the secrets of our lunar neighbour in The Ten Minute Guide… It's all too much! Remember too that we are the only multi-media SF magazine to publish short stories, and this issue we have two original tales from Alastair Reynolds and Eric Brown!
This impressive list is but the barest spectrographic survey of the galaxy of entertainment that awaits you. To truly sample its multifarious delights, you will have to make a lengthy trip within yourself. £4.99 is but a low fare for such a voyage!
Death Ray #20 is out in all good newsagents now.

MAY 26TH 1916 - JULY 13TH 2009
My dear Nan lived life to the full until she reached the spectacular age of 93.
She inspired all of us. Through her resilience and independence of spirit. Through her strength and kindness and tenderness - having equal time for everyone, at anytime. She inspired us through her love - distributed evenly throughout her three children, six grandchildren, thirteen great grandchildren and one great, great grandchild as well as all their attendant families and friends.
She will always be remembered.
