More fact and fiction from the Reed Business Publishing empire. I got 1.1 and read a couple of the stories. A bit of style over substance I thought, and haven’t bought this issue. For the record here are the stories in this issue, with the summaries from the website/tumblr :
Attenuation by Nick Harkaway : Sonny Hall lived fast, died young and left a beautiful corpse. And that’s when his troubles really began
The Man by Paul McAuley : Why did he come to this hardscrabble human settlement, unannounced, unequipped, without purpose, without desire? Come to think of it – why did they?
Big Dave’s in Love by T.D. Edge : Poor Dave: somewhere under all those vodka mallows beats a lover’s heart. And Jack had better find it, fast, before the sludge arrives.
Komodo by Jeff VanderMeer
