An average issue with interesting stories by Gregor Hartmann, Matthew Hughes, R.S. Benedict and with an especially interesting story about a musical faun by Jerome Stueart.

- "The Unbearable Lightness of Bullets" by Gregor Hartmann: a detective enlists the help of a patrol officer to solve the mystery of the murder of a currency trader that appears to have been too successful.

- "The Plot Against Fantucco’s Armor" by Matthew Hughes: what starts out for the servant as an innocent task to get the de

A nice issue with some solid stories.

All of Me by R.S. Benedict
Really imaginative and intricate novella, a mermaid story of a different sort, because this one clones herself by regeneration. The managers of her "original" want to keep the singing star a solo act. The story flips around among the PoV of different clones with branching ancestry and memory. ****1/2*

"The Free Orcs of Cascadia" by Margaret Killjoy
Interesting thought experiment. A small subculture of Orc Metal & Orc Folk music tak

As I finished this issue I felt very good about a couple of the stories in it, especially "Postlude to ...".

Gregor Hartmann - The Unbearable Lightness of Bullets - 4 stars

Matthew Hughes - The Plot Against Fantucco's Armor - 4 stars
- Magic, wizards, royalty, sneaky plots. Nice story.

S. Qiouyi Lu - At Your Dream's Edge - 4 stars
- An app for your phone can trigger a specific requested type of nightmare. A scary story.

R. S. Benedict -

- R. S. Benedict - All of Me. The Little Mermaid as A Star is Born. With asexual reproduction.

- Tina Connolly - Miscellaneous Notes From the Time an Alien Came to Band Camp Disguised As My Alto Sax. This one time, at band camp...

Very Good+. A currency trader is murdered in his office. Phillipa is the detective on the case. She starts by trying to find those that might have a motive. Perhaps he was running a Ponzi scheme and an irate client is responsible. Great interaction between her and Jun, the officer she pulled in to help her with the investigation.
