5 • Save, Salve, Shelter • 23 pages by Essa Hansen
Good/OK. The Earth has been made uninhabitable. Pasha is a collector of DNA specimens so they can reconstruct the animals. Pasha isn't satisfied with just DNA, she is also collecting living animals. The shuttles won't take the animals they'll just euthanize them.

I really enjoyed a couple of the fantasy stories, luckily the longest of the issue:

"Chisel and Chime" by Alex Irvine

Over the course of her work, she listens to the backstory of the guard set to make sure she doesn't flee the "honor". The two tales mesh well. Deliberately paced, thoughtful tale.

"Three Gowns for Clara" by Auston Habershaw

Unsettling in a bad way this month. Uninteresting stories in general and a few that made me cringe with male gaze problems.
