Issues 50 - 90 of Clarkesworld are now available in print editions from amiZon for a little more than six bucks each or less than five bucks from other sellers. Not only great stories but almost worth the price for the covers alone.

Or, you can go to and have a nice lady read the stories to you from some of the older issues. It's a multi-media event !

Besides the two outstanding stories in this issue there is also a kind of book review called "Sherlock Holmes
Dione Basseri
Humanity doesn't so much have gods as it has ideas, and Death is the oldest among them. And he believes he must be the last to pass from the world. He just didn't expect it so soon. Humanity is almost extinct, and Death begins to lament his coming passing from the Earth. But....

I was neither particularly impressed nor put off by the story. The ending is somewhat clever (it reminds me a bit of the series of speculative future documentaries the Discovery channel ran), but without particular impact

That was so different and really great. Human kind has ended and Death is walking around in New York among the other concepts and gods of the world, thinking about evolution. Octopi. Also the gods have opened a Starbucks! Funny, well written and it made me smile.
