    Clutching at his throat like he'd had something with hot sauce on it.

    Actually, the cover figure looks like he's having an asthma attack. I see it fits with a story about a contagion. I'm not sure about reading that story, but it's the one that has my attention and I might bring myself to read it fairly soon now.

    Just finished reading this issue

    Two stories stood out from the rest for me.

    Matthew Hughes' latest tale of Baldemar was wonderful. I really enjoyed the twist and turns. Keep them coming Matt!

    'All of Me' by R.S. Benedict was also enthralling. Our many heroines were all quite endearing.

    There were no painful stories anywhere....

    Overall a good issue.
