it was ok

Neither story in this issue lit my fire; Cassandra Khaw's "She Who Hungers, She Who Waits" is the better of the two, thanks to the author's gift for macabre atmospherics and stark imagery. The other story is "Cry of Desire in a Shrouded Land" by Talisen Fray, an interminable and monotonous novelette that nurses a couple of good ideas but achieves little by it. Also, one of the story's character arcs hand waves past an horrible offense and I am surprised editor Scott H. Andrews let it through without comment. It left a bad taste in my mouth, even more so that the story was a slog to get through.
