I want to get the issues to bookgroup on Saturday, so I'm going to try to get all three in by tomorrow night.

This is a double issue with an unusual cover (by J.K. Potter) to go with The Last Judgment by James Patrick Kelly, I had to keep looking back and forth. It was a really good novella in a future Earth where aliens have killed all the men (too dangerous) and arrange babies the way they want. Some of the aliens disagree.

Williams' article is about SF on tech. Not her idea, but a lot of people emailed and said they liked it.

The other really good story was by Carol Emshwiller -- Riding Red Ted and Breathing Fire -- where somewhere else, spiffy soldiers are flying really dangerous fairy/horse-like beings. Our protagonist is going to pick something up, but things don't quite turn out the anticipated way.
