It's a great issue, I think. It's got some of my favorite folks in it: Mike Perschon, John Scalzi, James Bacon, Claire Brialey, Niall Harrison, Steve Green, Barbara Johnson-Haddad, Jay Crasdan, and Warren Buff, along with some folks I don't know, Jon Courtenay Grimwood, Edward James (whose Turing Points in History: A Medievalist's Thoughts is a personal fave), Paul McCauley, and more!
Plus, there's art from Taral Wayne and various others!
Go and take a look. It's fun stuff.
