BOOK REVIEW: Galaxy's Edge Magazine Issue 1: March 2013

Galaxy's Edge Magazine Issue 1: March 2013Galaxy's Edge Magazine Issue 1: March 2013 by Mike Resnick
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A good first issue of what will hopefully be a long lasting magazine to go along with the other excellent publications in this field.
There's a good mixture of stories in here, my particular favorite being THE SHOULDERS OF GIANTS by Robert J Sawyer. Other stories of note are REQUIEM FOR A DRUID by Alex Shvartsman, a supernatural type story that I quite liked (unusual for me as I'm not usually into this sort of thing), and JUST A SECOND by Lou J. Berger is a great little tale about a fellow who eventually get what's coming to him.
Also the first five chapters of DARK UNIVERSE by Daniel Galouye got my attention and this looks like it should be an interesting and exciting story. It is very successful in full length novel form.
Mike Resnick's editorial about the early pioneering days of the science fiction magazines is interesting an informative.
All in all there was enough for me to go on and order Issue 2 which I am eagerly awaiting.
