Copy arrived yesterday. Looks like a good'un - so far I've only read the Ellison on Sturgeon piece. I'd forgotten how early Sturgeon was - suppose I've always thought of him (erroneously) as a sixties writer. Never really twigged before that 'More than Human' and 'The Dreaming Jewels' were fifties novels. Which probably says a lot about the great man. I gather Ray Bradbury cited him as an influence, which makes a lot of sense now I think about it.

That's a cracking article on Sturgeon. Poignant and funny.

I forgot not only how good Sturgeon was, but also how good Ellison could be.

Wow :!:, "Toke" by Tim Akers was an excellent story. I wonder how he came up with the idea. Wish I'd thought of it. :D

Love the artwork by David Sirois too.

Jason Ellis has so far reviewed two IZ210 stories -- 'Tearing Down Tuesday' by Steven Francis Murphy and 'Dr Abernathy's Dream Theater' by David Ira Cleary -- on Dynamic Subspace. Both reviews are very positive indeed.

It was!

Clare reviews the IZ210 stories very positively (so far) on Shelf Sufficient. Very interesting.

(With all these review links please be alert to the danger of spoilers.)

Thanks, Liloleme. The story grew out of my thinking about the guarana as a race. That whole setting is something I kick around in my head a lot...it's the same as for The Song from IZ 204 and another that Andy has bought. It started as this fragment of imagery that eventually accreted into a story. Glad you liked it.

Finally got time to read #210. The stand-out piece for me was Tearing Down Tuesday by Steven Francis Murphy - and all the more so since (if memory serves) it's his first published story. My only niggle was there was perhaps slightly too much exposition before it really got going - but what a powerful story! My second favourite was probably the atmospheric Dr Abernathy's Dream Theatre - though Heartstrung, with its intelligent and affecting central metaphor, would run it a close race.

This is all new to me? Do I get to respond or anything? There seems to be a dozen schools of thought on this.

Mike, thanks, man. You made my day.

Exposition. Yeah, that is tricky. There must be at least three drafts that have varying lengths of that. There has to be a happy medium and maybe someday, I'll find it.

Ah, my soon to be former day job calls me. Blah.

Thanks, Mike.

Respects,
S. F. Murphy
