Reviewed by Chuck Rothman in TangentOnline, where he notes the issue “has seven stories sticking with what the magazine does best: solid sf adventures”. Review here.
Reviewed by Lois Tilman in LocusOnline where she noted three ‘pretty sound examples’ of hard SF, but in the rest of the stories ‘there’s a lot of humor, particularly stuff featuring silly aliens, which I count as fantasy’. Review here. FWIW stories about silly aliens generally irritate the hell out of me.
