This issue had three really strong stories:

1. "Safeguard" by Nancy Kress -- four small children from foreign countries who are carrying death in their breath are kept in a biodome and ministered to by an elderly lady in a biosuit. An earthquake breaks the dome and the children wreak death on all they meet. Their biosuit lady finds them and must decide whether to continue to protect them or kill them.

2. "Cafe Culture" by Jack Dann -- a story of hate, how it fragments, and grows. This story is worth the price of the magazine.

3. "Trunk and Disorderly" by Charles Stross -- an amazingly silly story with word play underlying a far future conspiracy. I think someone bet Charlie to write this, but it's really good anyway.
