What’s in Issue 195

Novel The Soltrian agents Dorn and Martin have fit in well among the scientists of MWB-11. But two disasters loom: project New Frontier may succeed, and it may also soon be overrun by invading armies. Danielle L. Parker, Mad World Band, chapter 5; chapter 6, part 1; chapter 6, part 2; chapter 7.

The moral seems to be never to leave without saying goodbye in person: Norman A. Rubin, The Honored and the Forgotten.
