Magazine Description

In this issue

February being the traditional month of romance, we start the issue off with a novellette by Rudy Rucker and Eileen Gunn that treats us to the zany courtship of a lovely Southern California woman and her plugged-in and technologically turned-on “Hive Mind Man.” In “Murder Born,” Robert Reed’s latest novella, an utterly engrossing mystery tale is blended with a remarkable idea. It’s a future where murder victims may be returned to their families, but the price is high and mistakes happen. Elsewhere in the issue, Kristine Kathryn Rusch brings us an exciting thriller about the eerie “Voodoo Project”; the Golden Age of Science Fiction isn’t quite what it used to be in Bruce McAllister and Barry Malzberg’s “Going Home”; new author D. Thomas Minton takes us on a spiritual voyage across time and space and offers us some “Observations on a Clock”; and prolific new author Ken Liu lands a group of diverse humans on a distant planet where they encounter a curious alien lifeform and experience the challenge of pulling a new comunity together. By the end of the tale, you’ll know who “The People of Pele” really are. While taking the Ouroboros by the tail (in a manner of speaking), Robert Silverberg reveals the joy of “Rereading Eddison” in his Reflections column. We’ll also have Peter Heck’s “On Books,” plus an array of poetry and other features you’re sure to enjoy.
