review 2: Not a whole lot that I liked in this issue, though there were a couple of bright spots.The featured cover story, "Rooksnight", was just okay. It's a sword and sorcery fantasy concerning a human and gargoyle pair; problem is, the duo really don't have much in the way of personality. So we're left with just the story, which involved a lot of traps and some hidden treasure.I was happy
... moreto read a new installment of Kritzer's Seastead YA series, the adventures of a teenage girl with a scheming, immoral father on a furture artificial independent archipelago. This 4th story was good, though I was grateful I still have the previous issues with stories to refresh my memory, since this one wasn't big on exposition for the uninitiated. And I hope I won't have to wait another 15 months for the next story!"Presidential Cryptotrivia" was short and quite silly, but it did succeed in making me laugh several times."White Curtain" was a good fantasy (?) story of alternate timelines.In "The Memory Cage", ghost-dad's recollections of World War II didn't really ring true to me.None of the other stories really struck me as interesting or memorable. less
