Got this as part of a Humble Bundle in 2015, I think Finally got around to it There were some really great and moving stories in here As usual with anthologies, a collection of my status updates Things Undone Novella That was a crazy emotional ride We often read time travel stories concerned with what might change This one takes place in the alternate world in which a discovery changes the progress of technology completely A catastrophic time travel event takes place and we follow investigators [...]
The reprint of John Barnes novella Things Undone was pretty good but the rest of the stories were really not my cup of teaSo giving this 2 stars
This issue was mostly a waste for me The majority of the stories left me scratching my head, as if I d misunderstood or totally missed the point.I thought the e book exclusive novella reprint, Things Undone , was the best part of the issue It s a nice time travel story.Of the fantasy stories, Lily Red left me with that what it I miss feeling at the end The Bolts Tightener and Ash Minette were interesting, easy reading, though they both felt a bit obvious in their destination from the start The D [...]
Not much to say, as I m tired of jotting out these little reviews at the moment Awesome time travel novella by John Barnes, Things Undone.Loved the two fantasy short stories that largely focused on imagery setting, The Bolt Tightener and Three Days of Rain And the sci fi that really worked for me was The Dream Detective , Biographical Fragments of the Life of Julian Prince , and Let s Take This Viral So a really all around great issue.The two fairy tale twists and the novel excerpt didn t work f [...]
Review to come after I post my story by story reviews on my Livejournal No real disappointments in this issue I think I enjoyed even if I didn t completely understand the mechanics of the John Barnes novella the most, as well as the Fowler, Ulibarri and Savage pieces, but there wasn t a single story I felt let down by this time out.Individual story reviews can be found here 365shortstoriesvejournal
There are some interesting stories in here The interview with Phillip Pullman, however, kind of makes me not want to read his work since he criticizes J.R.R Tolkien negatively for not tackling issues of human sexuality.
Just so so for this issue Only stand out story had to be Biographical Fragments by Jake Kerr.
The Bolt Tightener was my favourite short story in this issue Superb
With next month s issue just round the corner, I think I m done with this month s now.
