Stories by Henry Lien, William Preston, Ian R. MacLeod, Jay O’Connell, Timons Esias, Gregory Norman Bossert, R. Neube, Nancy Kress. Reviews to follow.
A bumper double-issue offering ‘a mix of terrifying chills and SF thrills’ : exactly what you want on a muggy mid-August evening. Gregory Frost and Igor Teper the pick of an otherwise average bunch for me..
Drop-dead gorgeous cover by Kinuko Craft, and the pick of the stories from Ian R. MacLeod and Benjamin Crowell.
Stories by Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Gwendolyn Clare, Jack Skillingstead, Gregory Norman Bossert, Leah Thomas, all good ones.
Vaughn, Rucker and Di Filippo, Schwartz, and Rick Wilber the pick of the issue.
Stories by Robert Reed, G. David Nordley, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Eric Del Carlo, Megan Arkenberg. A fairly weak issue, truth be told, with Reed taking up a lot of space, but to slightly less than usual effect.
A bit of a curate’s egg of an issue – good in parts, less so in others – stories by Neal Asher, Joel Richards, Colin P. Davies, Alan Wall, Tom Purdon, Linda Nagata, Karl Bunker, Naomi Kritzer, Leah Cypess, Ken Liu.
Stories by William Preston, Dale Bailey, Robert Reed, Chris Willrich, Matthew Johnson, Suzanne Palmer.
Wowza – a double issue that’s an issue and a half – enough excellent SF to keep everyone happy.
Stories by Indrapramit Das, Jason Sanford, Theodora Goss, Ian Creasey, Ted Reynolds, Aliette de Bodard, Bruce McAllister, Gord Sellar. Some strong, some good, some weak. Read the review to find out which is which!
