of a version of Time Machine directed by Simon Wells great grandson of H G Wells author of the book The Time Machine and starring Guy PearceThe Curiosities column in this issue is by Bill Sheehan Sheehan discusses a 1934 horror novel The Cadaver of Gideon Wyck by Alexander Laing Sheehan says that parts of the book seem dated but on the whole he praises itThere are cartoons by J P Rini Mark Heath and Danny Shanahan I like all of themThere aren t any stories in this issue that I don t like I do think that Thurston s story is somewhat derivative and that Leda is not at the superb level of some of Rickert s other fiction I think that the stories by Libling and Chwedyk are both excellent61419I see that once again boobs from Goodreads have changed my review from a single story to one of the entire magazine in which it appeared One might hope that before doing this ind of thing they would notify the person who posted the review but evidently civility is not reuired by Goodreads librarians.
