Prologue to an Analogue

by Leigh Richmond

A horrible mess of plot-less, jumbled writing. Difficult to follow at first, then you kind of suspect where everything is going, and then it goes there with very little surprise. Basically, the "power of the people" - their thoughts/wishes - causes things to happen as if they were a group of successful witches. Utterly boring in execution.

Project Mastodon

by Clifford Donald Simak

Such a good premise, and some fairly good writing. But, the author blows it with a horribly unsatisfying ending.

Basically, yet-another-time-travel-story. However, it was done well enough to keep it interesting until the crash and burn ending.

Probability

by Louis Trimble

I went back and forth over whether to rate this story 3 or 4 stars. It's really in between, but I gave it the benefit of the doubt.

A rather simplistic story with no particular twists or turns. Some of it's even a bit hokey and tired. But, I thought the writing was otherwise pretty good, and it kept me entertained without moaning.

Simply put, a guy figures out time travel and has all the expected fun with it without any of the usual consequences.

PRoblem

by Alan Nourse

The start of the story is a little misleading in that it seems comical and superficial, but then it settles down into a bit better sci-fi. There are hints of the ending through the story, but when it comes, it's a real disappointment. Trite, in fact.

Ugly but benign creatures from another dimension are flooding Earth. How do you sell the populace on that?

Author of the Day

George A. Santino
From a very young age, George A. Santino realized that if you wanted something, you had to work for it - even if that meant digging for soda bottles in trash cans. This attitude got him far in life - he received four rejections from Microsoft before they employed him in an entry level position. Years later, he made partner and managed to retire at age 55. As our author of the day, Santino tells us more about his autobiography and what it takes to get back up in life.
