The May issue features interviews with Jack Dann & Janeen Webb and Lisa Goldstein. News focuses on awards nominations (Hugo, Stoker, Sturgeon) and winners (BSFA, Philip K. Dick). There's also coverage of the 1999 World Horror Convention and the 1999 International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts, both with lots of photos, including the traditional gather-round-the-pool shot at the Florida site of the ICFA.

Also, an obituary of Arkham House/Golden Gryphon editor and publisher Jim Turner, with appreciations by Michael Swanwick, James Patrick Kelly, John Kessel, and Bob Eggleton.

Plus the usual news, reviews, and listings -- including a new column of art book reviews by Karen Haber.
