Some creepy, fun stuff in this issue, including the poems and the editorials. (definitely will check out those podcasts)

An excellent issue. I generally don't like horror, but I enjoyed Douglas Warrick's eerie horror villains a lot. I'll read almost anything in de Bodard's Vietnamese future, and this was a different vantages than the ones I'd encountered before. Pletsch's unusual future folklore and an excerpt that make me curious for me, all in all worthwhile.
Read Folk Hero (the title initially lead me to expect a ghost story, since I related the word Folk to all things pagans, but it was scifi. It was good though). I also read Cuckoo Girls (enjoyed it). Didn't read Memorials (my scifi quota was already covered) and The Kraken Sea.
