Reviewed on LocusOnline by Gardner Dozois here, who finds the issue ‘contains a lot of entertaining stories worth the reading, but nothing particularly outstanding’. He puts McMullen forward as the pick of the bunch, finds Owomoyela’s story a ‘chewy read’ at times, but ‘compelling by the end’. Other stories are ‘elegant’ and ‘nicely done’.
