    Another excellent issue. Horror, humor, fantasy, hard SF-- and not one story I didn't like. Kudos to Gordon & C.C.

    Just finished reading this issue

    Madeleine Robins takes top honours for me. Eliza shows us that sometimes a machine is more than its parts and Mr. Higgins shows us that sometimes a man is less than he should be. Very well done.

    I enjoyed all of the stories included.

    Overall a good issue
