Fiction this issue from Pat MacEwen, Charlotte Ashley, Brian Trent, Albert E. Cowdrey, William Leadbetter, Ted Kosmatka, Rich Larson, Allora & Calzadilla and Ted Chiang, Joseph Tomares, Susan Palwick, Yukimi Ogawa. Reviews underway.
The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction provides consistently high quality fiction – with slightly more F than SF in each issue.
Stories by John P. Murphy, Marc Laidlaw, Cat Rambo, Juliette Wade and Sheila Finch, Sarina Dorie, Nancy Kress, Justin Barbeau, Chris De Vito, N.J. Schrock, James L. Cambias. Nothing in the issue really grabbed me.
Three SF stories set on Mars start the issue, other good SF, and Raffalon and Jimmie and Morrie return to grace the F&SF pages.
Scholz, Kritzer, and Birnbach the pick of the issue for me.
Some excellent stories within – a strong issue.
Muir, Van Aaron Hughes, and Chwedyk the pick of the ish for me.
Some strong stories in the issue, with David Gerrold the pick of the bunch.
An especially strong issues with Bao Shu a particular standout.
