Overview

Lightspeed Magazine is a monthly science fiction magazine that features all types of sf, from near-future, sociological soft sf, to far-future, star-spanning hard sf, and anything and everything in between:

Our lead story this month, "In-fall," by Ted Kosmatka, puts us aboard a ship hurtling through space. Aboard this ship, two men--mortal enemies--await their inevitable deaths, although that means something very different for each of them.

"The Observer," by Kristine Kathryn Rusch tells the story of a woman separated into various parts of herself. However, there's always a dominant side. And that side will do whatever it can in order to survive.

After reading our third piece of fiction for the month, "Jenny's Sick" by David Tallerman, you might do a double take when you see your colleague coughing by the water fountain. A seasonal cold, he says, but are you certain that's the case? Maybe it's something more serious.

For our final story this month, we present "The Silence of the Asonu" by Ursula K. Le Guin, which allows us a glimpse into a race of people that do not speak as we do, but have plenty of other ways to communicate, some which may be more powerful than our own.

and some cool non fiction articles mixed in, which I like. Especially of note is that the articles reflect themes explored in some of the fiction. I'll be reading the boy some sci-fi and the article on Black holes as a cool.science/english lesson. Highly recomended and will.download new issues as I can.

I am not enjoying the stories in this issue, nor the related interviews -- not every story merits an interview, and I just don't think some of the interviews have been very good. I have enjoyed the nonfiction articles in this issue, however. But I'd rank Lightspeed behind Clarkesworld and Apex in terms of story quality.
