    Here's a blog from overseas about this issue: http://zhaobotong.blogspot.com/2008/06/mag-of-fsf-july-2008.html

    One thing about what eric said :-

    Calling FSF old fashioned and then holding up Kelly Link as a paragon makes no sense.

    Nancy Drew pastiche and Faery Handbags? About as old-fashioned as you could get.

    The Nightshade board does not seem to like my registration (which I tried to do because I saw a notice from Gordon Van Gelder that he would like to know when the international copies arrive) so guess this is the place to post this: the July copy arrived in Lovech, Bulgaria in Sat, 28 June.

    Here's an unfavorable but completely fair blog review of this issue: http://keilexandra.livejournal.com/163718.html. It's a good example of an unfavorable review that I find helpful. I can see what hit and what missed and I have pretty good guides for gauging why.

    Gordon,

    The link you just posted doesn't work.

    Very strange -- the same link on the Nightshade forum does work:

    Thanks. I'll bet the period at the end of the sentence got caught in the URL here.

    Thought I'd bump a four year old magazine topic up just to be doing so. Is anyone interested in reminiscing about this long-ago issue?

    I'll take the opportunity to note that "Fullbrim's Finding," the last Henghis Hapthorn story to appear in F&SF, is one of the nine stories collected in the collection "9 Tales of Henghis Hapthorn," on my web site at $2.99.

    "Cheap," as they used to say on the cover of Mad Magazine.

    What, me pushy?

    Your pushiness shan't go unrewarded! I remember Hapthorn fondly, but I only read a couple of the stories. This anthology sounds great, and I've just nabbed it from Amazon. (P.S.: A link to your shop would've been helpful! I googled, and found a pre-shop blog post of yours referring to Amazon rather than your own store. Then I found the link you posted in another thread here on the forum. :P )

    This issue had an alt history story, "Poison Victory" by Albert E. Cowdrey. In this story, Nazi Germany won the Battle of Stalingrad and defeated the Soviet Union.

    In the story, a Russian resistance movement is briefly mentioned.
    I think that idea could form the basis of an interesting alternate history novel.

    Standback: "P.S.: A link to your shop would've been helpful!"

    I didn't want to be that pushy, but since you raise the issue:
