- "Grizzled Veterans of Many and Much", by Robert Reed - One of two stories in this issue dealing with the theme of living beyond current human life spans. In this case the method appears more novel to my reading experience, and I also found the writing here to be more touching. Usually a good Reed story entertains with not much more for me, but this stood out with elements that went deeper, such as the sense of living in a changed world of new technologies that one isn't eager to embrace for ...more

This is a solid issue with no real duds.

"Grizzled Veterans of Many and Much" is an interesting take on transcendence in that having your brain hooked up to a computer cooks the brain in a matter of days but subjectively, it seems like decades. I liked it up to the ending which I thought made no sense as the main character sets up a simulation of his family and then goes and kills himself to keep it running even though no one real observes it.

As per usual, my favorite magazine comes through with interesting and fun new stories for the issue.

Grizzled Veterans of Many and Much by Robert Reed- I think Reed may be my favorite short fiction writer. This story is about a direction the human race goes, with technology, resulting in an apocalypse of a kind. The narrator provides the solution. - 5 stars

By the Light of the Electronic Moon by Angelica Gorodischer- Very entertaining story of a sexual misadventure. - 5 stars

Changes by Rand B. Lee

An interesting mix of stories this time around. Changes alone is enough to make this an excellent issue, and I hope there will be something continuing the storyline in a future issue. The setting of an Earth wracked by reality-altering storms was interesting, and the dog characters were quite well written. Wormwood was okay. I felt like the SF aspects weren't explored quite enough. Grizzled Veterans wasn't great and Woman in the Moon was a total waste of space. The Bluehole was fairly good, ...more

I tried this on a 30 day free subscription trial of this magazine and I wasn't disappointed. It contains quite a few short stories. Some of them were really good. If you are a fan of science fiction and fantasy genre's and like reading norvellas and short stories then this is the magazine for you.

If it wasnt for a couple of weak stories this would be a strong issue, but it has some stellar stories such as Wormwood, Mood Room, Bluehole, and Systems of Romance. But they werent enough to convince me to give up the fourth star this time out.

For me, this was a very 'dark' issue. From the cover, to a couple of the stories inside, I just couldn't get into it. I hope the next issue proves much better.

Sad to say, I didn't really enjoy any of the stories this issue. A couple were okay, best among them probably Reed's "Grizzled Veterans of Many and Much", but it was a really forgettable issue.
