BCS #101 and #102 were reviewed last week by Lois Tilton of Locus Online. She called the issues overall “Two strong pairs of stories.”
“The Heart of the Rail” by Mark Teppo she found “quite well-realized, both the physical environment and the characters,” and gave it here rare Recommended rating. “The Tale of the Aggrieved Astrologer” by Jack Nicholls she found “Originally-conceived and entertaining. The details of the astrology and astronomancy are particularly rich.”
“Strong stuff here in this dark dark fantasy” she said about “The Angel Azrael Delivers Small Mercies” by Peter Darbyshire, and that Azrael as a character “raises the bar for the iconic image of the lone gunslinger with a past.”
Thanks very much!
