Book Description

Lightspeed Magazine features all types of sf, from near-future, sociological soft sf, to far-future, star-spanning hard sf, and anything and everything in between . . . and in its July 2010 issue, Lightspeed contains two all-new, never-before-published stories: In Carol Emshwiller’s “No Time Like the Present,” the residents of a small, economically-disadvantaged town are surprised by the sudden influx of oddly tall, oddly rich, oddly speaking people who appear out of nowhere and buy up all the prime real estate. And if you don’t think that sounds shoe-dad, well, evolve, why don’t you? Corporate slavery, retrograde amnesia, posthumanism, and kicking ass take center stage in “Manumission” by Tobias S. Buckell, the tale of a mercenary named Pepper who must rebel against those who would seek to control him. Steampunk is the order of the day in “The Zeppelin Conductors’ Society Annual Gentlemen’s Ball” by Genevieve Valentine—an SFnal take on a subgenre more known for its flights of fantasy—featuring heliosis, 19th century ephemera, and, of course, airships. And from bestselling author George R. R. Martin, we bring you “...For a Single Yesterday”—one of his lesser-known tales, but also one of his most powerful—which explores the value of memory, music, and drugs in the aftermath of an apocalypse.

5.0 out of 5 stars An SF bargain 17 Feb. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I recently unsubscribed from 'Fantasy and Science Fiction' and was searching for a replacement. 'Lightspeed' was a good alternative, with (so far) fewer duff stories, and each story enhanced by an interview with the author and by a somewhat light-hearted science article discussing some of the background thought to the stories (more digestible, even, than 'Analog)'. I nearly subscribed, but in the end the pressure of reading each monthly issue before the next replaces it on the Kindle was too great. However, Lightspeed release their back issues at reduced price. All 2010 issues are on sale at 77p, a real bargain for stories and supplementary matter of this quality.
