★★★★☆
“Suddenly Mika understood everything, more than everything. Creation spread out in front of him like a map.”

This story started rough; it was difficult to establish character names to roles and motivations. But it became my favorite fast.

Two MCs use their differences, disabilities, at great personal cost to bring two species into harmony.

It is also one of those stories where you never really find out what happened but I'm ok with that here... Alien aliens.

My two favorite stories from this issue are "The Stars Above" by Katharine Duckett and "By Degrees and Dilatory Time" by SL Huang (one of the reprints, and a reread for me - it still really holds up!).

I've given this 10/10 on a total gut reaction. I struggled with a few of the stories, but as I've said many times before, my brain doesn't always manage short stories well and I'm totally going to take the blame for that, not lay it on the stories.

But the interviews, essays and personal stories were wonderful.

I'm in here. My son is in here. And there are people like us talking about themselves and how science fiction has been part of their lives and their disability. We're not often on the page

A great collection, a great read! I especially loved P.H. Lee's A House By the Sea, The Things I Miss the Most by Nisi Shawl, and By Degrees and Dilatory Time by S.L. Huang.

Uncanny is a very well-known science fiction and fantasy magazine. Even in science fiction, supposedly the genre of limitless possibility, where everyone is invited to the adventure, minorities are often underrepresented. Four year ago Lightspeed magazine started the "destroy science fiction" series, a yearly program focusing on underrepresented minorities to give them a voice, and to see what they have to offer and to contribute to the genre. In 2014 they focused on women. In 2015 on queer auth ...more

This was my first issue of Uncanny Magazine and I decided to become a subscriber instantly. The story selection in this issue is great, all of them are very good. They are not all for me, I liked them to varying degrees, but the selection of stories is excellent. It also discusses a theme like disability mostly untouched in the speculative fiction genre, hats off to that.
