An average issue, largely enjoyable with a mixture of story types from fantasy to science fiction to some that I wouldn't classify as either - which I like about this magazine. It is more literary than others, but also contains pure entertainment popcorn reads. Unlike something like, say, Analog, it isn't bogged down with technical matters or science.

"Rampion" by Alexandra Duncan - The longest of the stories, this one is well written and entertaining tale of two loves separated by family and cir

5 Star:
Music Makers Loved the characters. Had a hard time choosing between Music Makers and the Final Verse for my favorite of the edition. This one was more predicable, but liked the characters more.

Честно сказать, повесть далась мне с трудом. Автор очень старался стилистически окрасить повествование, в результате половина слов, за которыми я ползал в словарик, оказались с пометкой archaic. То есть, чисто технически я страдал, но тут, конечно, не вина автора.

Что касается непосредственно сюжетно-идейных позиций – довольно обыденное фэнтези про специалистов узкого теневого профиля и кошек. Я вообще-то кошек не люблю, но пишет Чеппелл про них очень красиво и с лю

This is a short story comp and as with most, some stories will appeal to certain readers and some won't. There is variety hill such as stories of the supernatural, climate, predicting the future and of a talking dog in space. Nothing really jumped out to me but at the same time, the collection didn't bore me.
