Part II of Steve’s review of an excellent SF and fantasy collection of stories by San Francisco’s Lisa Mason.
Steve continues his F&SF reviews with the current (Mar-Apr) issue. He finds it a nice blend of SF (even some “hard SF”) and fantasy (even “hard” fantasy!).
For his last column of the year and the decade, Steve reviews two excellent items: a new book by Lisa Mason, and the last 2019 F&SF. Both are well worth the read!
For his final column of 2018, Steve dives into the Nov./Dec. issue of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, which everyone just calls “F&SF.” It tastes great and is more filling with fewer calories than competing magazines!
This week Steve says a painful farewell to a special fan, and reviews the current (Sept./Oct.) issue of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. Please take a look!

Security Check by Arthur C. Clarke is a compelling short story classic from one of the masters and a charming example of what archetypal science fiction looks like.
Though pivotal to the plot, the science in Arthur C. Clarke’s Robin Hood, F.R.S. is noticeably dated (nearly sixty years), leaving the reader with questions and doubt rather than the anticipated wonder.
Steve gets all excited over a shared-universe anthology series. And tells you where to get FREE SF!
