First of all, this isn't an anthology, but a magazine. That's in the name, heh. The difference being mainly that there are several things that are acceptable in a magazine that you wouldn't find in a collection of stories. That is, there are a few genre-appropriate advertisements (for online SF book conventions, etc.), interviews, and previews of forthcoming novels. But the main focus is clearly short fiction.
The short stories are pretty good. They're not what I expected, not being a devoted follower of Science Fantasy. I guess I was expecting Star Wars, or things like that - you know, futuristic settings but with the plot not hinging on the tech. Instead, there is a variety, some one might be excused for putting in urban fantasy (superheroes, for instance) or Steampunk, and some far future scifi.
I also appreciate the SciFan (tm) Exclusive Previews - these give me a chance to find new authors by sampling their style. Definitely some gems and new (to me) authors to stalk, er, follow.
I give it 5 stars because it did what I wanted from any prose - it introduces me to something new, and leaves me wanting more.
I enjoyed this second installment of SciFan Magazine. The stories were entertaining and help to further their cause of instituting "SciFan" as a recognized genre.
My favorite story was "Inhospitable" by Dusty Wallace. The setting and characters were intriguing and captivating.
If there's one knock on SciFan Magazine, it's the inclusion of too many novel excerpts. I appreciate the attempt to familiarize the reader with longer works by SciFan authors, but I felt there were too many. Maybe one or two per issue would be enough, leaving room for more stand alone short stories.
Other than that, I felt it was an entertaining read and another fine installment. If you're a sci-fi fan or fantasy fan, consider checking out SciFan Magazine.
