really liked it

The big draw here is Jason Sanford's "The Emotionless, In Love", a stand-alone story set in the same world as his Nebula nominated story "Blood Grains Speak Through Memories". It's an epic action-adventure novella, maybe slightly overlong but otherwise hitting all the right notes. Sanford has created a distinct and compelling science fantasy world, where nanobots called "grains" were created to protect the environment but have ended up terrorizing, and re-shaping, human civilization.
Sarah Pinsker's "Do as I Do, Sing as I Sing" is a nice story as well. Guerre is chosen to be her town's next "cropsinger", one whose singing assists in the growing of crops. Her brother Acco believes he should have been the one chosen, and his jealously leads him down a more destructive path.
"Gennesaret", the fiction debut of Phoenix Alexander, is a well composed story about a mother fleeing an oppressive life with her infant son. Decent enough, though it eventually devolves into a heavy-handed political allegory that didn't gel with me.
