"A Mother’s Arms" by Sarina Dorie deserves a nomination.

Loved the novellette A Mother's Arms by Sarina Dorie and Golden Gate Blues by Janes L. Cambias. Also, take a look at the novella by John P. Murphy - The Liar.

As always I turned to Charles de Lint's Books to Look for (Thank Gaia for this column) and Kathi Maio's movie review that this time covers: The Potato Farmer who worked the Problem. Guess who?

This magazine never fails me. It's the one that when it arrives in the mailbox, I actually feel glee.

A lot of the stories were average to good, A Mother's Arms by Sarina Dorie was fantastic. I think it's worth going out of your way to read.

"The Liar" by John B Murphy is an almost Stephen King-like ghost story thriller, narrated in a folksy manner by a rural country New Englander. There seems to be some sort of malevolent curse afflicting the town, though only a few people have noticed. I found it really engaging, despite it not being the kind of borderline horror story I usually go for. ****

Cat Rambo's "Red in Tooth and Cog" has the interesting idea that in the future, feral smart appliances, discarded, self-repairing and AI-drive

Mes nouvelles préférées de ce numéro:
"Red in Tooth and Cog" de Cat Rambo: une nouvelle qui débute de façon très banale, mais dont l'aspect science-fictionnel est ancré dans le quotidien, ce qui donne une force au propos.

"A Mother's Arms", de Sarina Dorie: une belle adoption d'un point de vue extra-terrestre, avec des éléments caractéristiques à la fois cohérents et ancrés dans les émotions. Une belle réussite, une auteure que je compte suivre.

Pour les autres nouvelles:

"The Liar" by John P. Murphy - I enjoyed the small town New England setting and the set-in-his-ways bachelor main character. However, some of the character interactions felt off. I liked the lying knack, but thought its opposite wasn't really well integrated into the story. Finally, the mystery and its resolution didn't feel very satisfying to me.

"The Ghost Penny Post" by Marc Laidlaw - Set in Victorian England, a strange shadow realm discovered by a postal inspector is the means for the story

The Ghost Penny Post was an awesome take on a relatively new hobby.
Red In Tooth and Cog was my favorite of the issue, probably. A very interesting and well-developed premise. Also, whether real or imagined for a pen name, Cat Rambo is a cool nom de plume. I'd actually thought it was the name of a story originally, lol.
The Language of the Silent is one I would like to refer to my friend Oliver (if he reads this review) b/c it has to do with linguists.
A Mother's Arms was a fantastic! In fact, in r

As always, some great stuff in here, and some that's merely average. Loved Sarina Dorie's "A Mother's Arm." A fantastic tale from a different POV--awesome stuff. And the author is a pretty cool lady!

Solid issue. Lead story "The Liar" by John P. Murphy was particularly strong. I also enjoyed "A Mother's Arms" by Sarina Dorie and "Golden Gate Blues" by James L. Cambias.
