Boyer’s Bartleby the Scavenger a strong story that kept me engrossed, but the rest of the issue much less so.
The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction provides consistently high quality fiction – with slightly more F than SF in each issue.
Clearly something is wrong with the time-space continuum as there’s way too much content to fit into even 250-odd pages, and it must be something to do with superdense dark matter that has meant I’ve been reading the issue since April. And there’s some excellent stories in the issue.
Cover by way of tribute to the late Ed Valigursky. Pick of the stories this month from Andy Stewart, C.C. Finlay, Seth Chambers, Alex Irvine.
Striking cover by ‘Modolithic Studios’ and strongest stories in a strong issue from Michael Blumlein and M.K. Hobson.
Not an issue with a standout story for this reader, but entertaining enough.
Altabef and Campion the pick of the issue for me.
Excellent value for money!
Wowza, an issue bulging with 10 stories, with pretty much something for everyone. Van Aaron Hughes and Albert E. Cowdrey being my picks.
