Sheila talked about her mentors last month and this month talked about the interns. Silverberg talked about showing & telling. James Patrick Kelly talked about how "free" things on the web may not be quite free.

Stories that I liked:

1. "Helping Them Take the Old Man Down" by William Preston. This is a story about an extraordinary man and it took me much longer than it will most of you to figure out who he was supposed to be.

2. "Ticket Inspector Gliden Becomes the First Martyr of the Glorious Human Uprising" by Derek Zumsteg. Aliens land and, yes, even though they think they're in charge, they have to buy the right train tickets, or do they?

3. "The Tower" by Kristine Kathryn Rusch. A time-travel company has hired someone to go with a team to check on the dead Princes, but he is not quite what he seems. Can the others get back okay?

I correctly guessed at the Old Man's identity somewhere in the first three pages.
