OK/Good. Now that there is peace the robots of war have been repurposed for service jobs. When Harold gets on the train the robot just packs in the riders. The robots don't have a meaning to their lives ever since the government took away the dogs.

Cassandra Khaw - Mighty Are the Meek and the Myriad - 3 stars

The mix of haunted houses (The Legacy) and ghost stories, plus an SF-robo-horror, makes me think the Halloween issue came out early this year.

I liked Dominica Phetteplace's "Nice for What" as a young "professional influencer" shills for her cancer treatment. Apparently in this future, HEalth Care is still not universal. ****

Molly Gloss's "The Everlasting Humming of the Earth" is a "soft" story of a woman who sort-of senses upcoming earthquakes, and it's driving her nuts. It's a quiet story that
