Not as good as the last issue, but some interesting stories.
This beginning intro by Robert Silverberg talks about a fascinating piece of music that takes 639 to play in its entirety. You can even watch a live stream of the organ, which hold the same note constantly for months at a time (the exciting part is when there is a note change, the next one scheduled on July 5, 2012).
BONDING WITH MORRY – Tom Purdom
The tale of a man and his robot, his helper, his confidante, and his only friend. He specifically designs him to look ugly, so that his true artificial nature is never forgotten. Though only about 10 pages long, this is a heart-warming story of companionship.
GREENER – Josh Roseman
Another ten-pager, and though a bit melodramatic, the story of Scott and the wife he loves who drives him crazy is good. I like how emotionally invested I managed to get, even in such a short medium.
APOCALYPTIC LOVE SONG – Megan Arkenberg
Not actually a story, but a poem. I had originally intended to reproduce it here, but then realized I’d probably be sued. So be content with trusting me that it’s good!
