    Victor Milan’s “The Floating World” is an orbiting-wheel space station run by Japanese expatriates and after WW4 (which followe closely after WW3) they have tried to distance themselves from Earth. However, they are not self-sufficient yet and two self-aware AI constructs are fighting over dominion of the station when an armed group invades and takes hostages. Lawrence Watt-Evans regales us with the tale of “Windwagon Smith And The Martians” which is sort of self-explanatory in a race to a canal Victor Milan’s “The Floating World” is an orbiting-wheel space station run by Japanese expatriates and after WW4 (which followe closely after WW3) they have tried to distance themselves from Earth. However, they are not self-sufficient yet and two self-aware AI constructs are fighting over dominion of the station when an armed group invades and takes hostages. Lawrence Watt-Evans regales us with the tale of “Windwagon Smith And The Martians” which is sort of self-explanatory in a race to a canal on Mars, while an old man finds a portal to September 1937 at the back of his closet and decides to find a nice young man for his granddaughter in “The Price Of Oranges” by Nancy Kress. A Wonderful tale. Coyote the trickster comes to a woman trying to give up cigarettes and makes her smile in the impressive debut tale by Sage Walker, “Indian Giving”, and Richard Paul Russo closes the issue with the claustrophobic tale of Mallon, sent by the inscutable chuurka via shiftportal to a dark cavern far distant in space. His mission to document his surroundings and location becomes secondary as he finds many previous people who have been stranded there. “More Than Night” is a strong finish to a good issue.
