First review of ASIM #37

I’m so excited! The first review of my last ASIM issue is up at The Fix. It says wonderful things about my issue and my authors, and I’m absolutely delighted.

How nice is this introduction?!

According to editor Tehani Wessely, Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine issue #37 is a compilation of tales that “deal with loss and change, in a wide variety of incarnations.” Why? Because this is the editor’s swan song. Wessely is leaving ASIM for other pastures. So the question then becomes, does this 37th issue of the popular Australian SF magazine live up to its editor’s claim? I think it does.This issue collects 13 stories from writers around the world that are from many subgenres, varying plot lines, and vastly different worlds. Yet all, no matter how strange or unusual, should resonate deeply in the mind of the reader. These narratives will pluck that string in your heart that has felt that there is something missing, something that you once had that should not be gone.

      Thanks – I’m so proud of this issue, and it makes me a bit sad that it’s my last. Ah well, now to bring that good stuff to TPP!

    It was a good review indeed. And leaving out the fact that you took one of mine – I thought you picked some really good work, Tehani. Nice one.

      From you sir, it’s high praise, as you are the editing epitome to which I aspire. Canterbury ROCKS!

        Oh, you’ve read it?

        Jeez, Tehani… I’m still WAY too close to that thing. All I can see is the stuff that I let slip. I know the stories work – but by now that’s a purely intellectual kind of knowing.

        Worked too hard, too long: I can no longer see the forest for the trees.

    Heh. I kind of liked that story by that Fischer bloke too 🙂 I love that people like all the stories but also that different people are most impressed by different stories. It means I’ve done my job well. And I LOVE this issue! The artwork alone makes me happy 🙂

    It’s a great review, but it would have been nice to see a mention of the absolutely spectacular artwork as well.

      Agreed! Dan Skinner did a brilliant job, and the internal art was done with very little notice to him – he’s a true professional.
