Additional contents include terrific short stories by Paul J. McAuley, Catherine Asaro, and James van Pelt, as well as book columns by Charles de Lint, Dave Truesdale and Paul T. Riddell.

TWZ The Twilight Zone Revisited by Rue Sorling

Circus The Pan-Galactic Circus: Selected Stories by Kilgore Trout
reviewed by Paul J. McAuley
He is considered the most important writer of our genre, and the most infuriatingly obscure. Even Kilgore Trout did not know how many of his stories were published. But the tenacious NESFA Press didn't let that get in their way.

Robo The Tale of RoboRock and Sweet Blossom
fiction by Catherine Asaro

Second Looks

Tolkien Unfinished Manuscript by J.R.R. Tolkien
reviewed by S. Kay Elmore
Oxford University Press has published a lost manuscript of J.R.R. Tolkien's, recently discovered in an Oxford library. This unusual fantasy details the story of four children who are magically transported to a mystical world populated by talking animals. Along with the manuscript was a letter from his good friend and colleague C.S. Lewis, politely telling Tolkien, in so many words, that the novel stinks and he should get on with writing something more substantial.
