Many thanks to Andy Hedgecock - for his review comments on Premonitions!
:D

btw - does that amazing Tredowski cover artwork have a title?
To me, it says: 'Saved By Technology'.

Just starting to read mine :)

The cover-art is stunning, but the link to the artist's website is not working?

It does, how odd.

I got what looked like a domain placeholder when I tried earlier. Must have been a typo.

The paintings (many listed on his blog) are truly amazing.

Another great issue. I especially enjoyed Unexpected Outcomes by Tim Pratt - a great idea written brilliantly.

"Microcosmos" by Nina Allan was the stand out for me, not really SF or fantasy I guess (though as a bit of science had a key role, it could be said to be literally science fiction), but there was a nice sense of a dark, untold story moving beneath it. "Unexpected Outcomes" by Tim Pratt was also good; "Lady of the White-Spired City" by Sarah L. Edwards wasn't bad either.

"Johnny and Emmie-Lou Get Married" by Kim Lakin-Smith didn't work for me: it's a storyline that has been used so frequently that its impossible to write as anything but pastiche these days. However, if the conceit was to use a different Shakespeare play (i.e. other than Romeo & Juliet) in a futurised West Side Story type of venue, then fair enough (but if that's the case, I can't work out which play).
