Stories by Carole Johnstone, James Van Pelt, Sean McMullen, Greg Kurzawa, Ken Altabef. Reviews to follow.
Most of the stories provide something just a little different, to engage the reader, with Johnson and Suggars the pick of the bunch for me.
Stories by Steven J. Dines, Jess Hyslop, Nigel Brown, Aliette de Bodard, Priya Sharma, Lavie Tidhar, Georgina Bruce, Shannon Fay.
Stories by Melanie Tem, Damien Walters Grintalis, Chris Butler, Antony Mann, Carlos Hernandez. Cover by Jim Burns. A so-so issue, light on SF.
Fiction this month from Lavie Tidhar, Helen Jackson, George Zebrowski, Guy Haley, Jim Hawkins, Tracie Welser. Cover art by Jim Burns.
A good but not great issue, with stories by Jon Wallace, Qhen Qiufan, Priya Sharma, Jason Sanford, and Caroline M. Yoachim.
Smaller in two dimensions, larger in another two dimensions, with stories by Urbanski, Liu, Sharma, Johnson, Bunker and Tidhar, and a mighty fine read.
Stories this month from Sean McMullen, Aliette de Bodard, Gareth L. Powell, David Ira Cleary, and C.J. Paget, and each one hits the spot nicely.
Stories by Elizabeth Bourne, Lavie Tidhar, Vylar Kaftan, Ray Cluley and Tracie Welser. Tidhar and Kaftan the pick for me, creating strong characters in realistic settings, the other three not achieving that.
Tem provides some vivid mental imagery, Palmer provides some more straightforward sfnal fayre, the other stories not quite having the same impact.
