    1. I received this print issue at convention in recent years. It was interesting to read an older issue, having read all of the recent ones edited by C.C. Finlay; I found Finlay's tastes align more closely with mine. The short stories here didn't resonate much with me, but several of the novelettes did: "The Caravan to Nowhere" by Phyllis Eisenstein, "Avianca's Bezel" by Matthew Hughes, and the quirky "The Thing in the Back Yard" by David Gerrold.


    2. 5 • The Rider • 27 pages by Jerome Cigut Excellent/VG. Luke has David, one of the few Tahara AI's. The AI is in a small box carried by Luke. Glasses allow the AI to see/hear what David does. Action scene, then a back story of how Luke acquired David (or vice versa), another action scene. A change in the dynamics requiring Luke & David to come up with a plan. 48 • The Caravan To Nowhere • 37 pages by Phyllis EisensteinExcellent. Alaric is a minstrel and is ready to move on. He sees th [...]


    3. Lots of good stories here for everyone to enjoy. More humor than I'm accustomed to seeing in one issue, but no complaints."The Rider" is an interesting twist on the normal human/computer relationship. Rather than humans using computers as tools, or humans finding themselves subjugated by computers, here we see humans working almost like employees for artificially intelligent computers. Meanwhile, these computers have developed their own culture and hierarchy, practically invisible to humans. A f [...]



    4. 12 storiesThe Rider by Jerome Cigut - An AI, "living" in a small black box, finds a Rider it likes, goes on sprees with the Rider Lake, and plans for a better life for them both. - 3 starsThe Caravan To Nowhere by Phyllis Eisenstein - A story of the mysteries of the desert, those drawn to the mysteries of a minstrel. Well written. - 4 starsMarketing Strategies of the Apocalypse by Oliver Buckram - Short, cutesy, won't last the test of time. - 2 starsSir Pagan's Gift by Tom Underberg - Well and c [...]


    5. "The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction" is an anthology publication with pedigree and a great deal of respect among fantasy/sf fans. This is the first time I've ever read an issue of it and frankly, I found it to be mediocre, uneven. Part of the problem may be that I'm not really much of a fantasy fan, which is what most of the stories in this issue are. The highlights, for me, were "The Caravan to Nowhere" by Phyllis Eisenstein, "Avianca's Bezel" by Matthew Hughes, "The Rider" by Jerome C [...]


    6. "The Rider" is a buddy story of a man and his AI companion. Moderately entertaining, if a bit familiar. ***"The Wild Ones" is sort of a sci-fi generation ship story in praise of troublemakers or something. **"Avianca's Bezel" was a light sword and sorcery story of the thief engaged by a wizard to steal the titular magic item Or maybe not. A bit overlong. ***"The Thing in the Backyard" - I never liked horror."Marketing Strategies of the Apocalypse" was a one and a half joke story of only a couple [...]


    7. "Embrace of the Planets" - Brenda CarreEmbrace of the Planets is a nifty result of a story challenge undertaken by author Brenda Carre. Protagonist Eleanora is thrilled to finally be in the right place at the right time: the junk store, Trove, has fascinated her for ages, and yet its bizarre, unpredictable hours of operation mean she has never been inside. But today is different. Her interest in the shop's intriguing contents results in tea and scones (complete with clotted cream) with the warm [...]


    8. Highlights: Buckram's "Marketing Strategies of the Apocalypse," Hughes's "Avianca's Bezel," Gerrold's humorous "The Thing in the Back Yard" (probably my second-favorite piece), Bailey's "The Culvert." Best of all: Tom Underberg's "Sir Pagan's Gift," which in a mere 15 pages creates a new world, with a new belief system (though not, sadly, a new economic system).


    9. A solid issue. Plenty of good to very good stories, although no real standouts. My favorites from the lot were "The Rider", by Jérôme Cigut, and "Sir Pagan's Gift", by Tom Underberg.
