    Sam Tomaino's review of the issue in SFREVU has lots of nice things to say:

    Just finished reading this issue

    Newcomer Pip Coen takes top honours for me. "Inquisitive" was a joy to read. Saffi is not your normal little troublemaker.

    Matthew Hughes "Argent and Sable" was also a cut above the rest. Therion is a very unlikable character. :)

    I didn't care for Ku'gbo by Falowo but I am sure others liked the story a lot.

    Overall a good issue.

    Thanks, alnico357 -- glad you liked the science column! And thanks digdug, I look forward to hearing how you like each issue, especially compared to everything you read and report on in the assorted magazines thread. (It gives me a baseline for evaluating reader reactions to the magazine.)

    My issue arrived today, June 23, in Oklahoma City. I am already two issues behind reading, so not able to comment. Looking forward to the time when I am able to read it.

    oops, my mistake, It is the July August issue that came today, June 23. I am still two issues behind. Plus a lot of other paperwork. Still looking forward to catching up.

    Yow...I think I'm gonna re-read this May - June issue rather than finish the July - August one. That "Freezing Rain and a Chance of Falling" was just a bit too far for me. Yes, I realize I'm probably going to be in a very small minority who dislike it, but whenever I read a story that requires a glossary -- and lacks one -- my eyes glaze over.
