    Mine came a few days ago. I am only slightly embarrassed to admit that I have to finish Anne of Avonlea before I dive in.

    I did read the tangent review. I can't wait to dive into The Dunsmuir Horror. I have driven through Dunsmuir a number of times. Perhaps I have missed something.

    GusG: David Gerrold read from "The Dunsmuir Horror" during the F&SF panel at Worldcon and it was very popular with the audience. (But he's a great performer.)

    Dr. Caligari and eduskunta: we hope you enjoy the issue!

    Sam Tomaino reviews the issue for SF Revu and says that "it's got a Hugo-worthy tale from Peter S. Beagle."

    A VERY fine issue, with the rich assortment of genres and moods that F&SF is known for. Not a bad story in the bunch, but my personal favorite was "The Voice in the Cornfield, The Word Made Flesh," for its heartbreaking authorial voice.

    Thanks, Dr. We really like hearing feedback about the issues, especially the stories people liked best.

    Just finished this issue. I agree with Dr C. There wasn't a bad story in the bunch, although "The Voice in the Conrnfield" was one of the lesser stories for me. Still good, just not as enjoyable as some of the others. I guess my fave was David Gerrold's "Further adventures of Mr. Costello". Overall a solid issue.
