What’s in Issue 513

Novel Dexter takes inspiration from an old film and tries to teach Jane spoken language. But Jane doesn’t use speech, and it’s her turn to teach Dexter a thing or two:
Martin Kerharo, The Dohani War
Chapter 6: Connection, part 1; part 2
Novella Young Billy Joe is suddenly plopped into the lap of luxury at Miss Harrison’s home. But the boy knows where his real home is, and he’ll go back come hell or high water — literally: Ron Van Sweringen, The Boy Next Door, chapter 11; chapter 12.
Serial New contributor George S. Karagiannis introduces secret agent Aidan Reed, who is assigned to uncover and foil an assassination plot. He’ll need all his telepathic powers to do it: The Peacemaker Incident, part 1.
On the planet of the Jirt, an unwanted wife is foreseen as falling, presumably committing suicide, and an airplane seems to be a handy means. But an Earthling pilot trainer may have other ideas: David Barber, The Unwanted Wife of Lord Serramulla.

New contributor S. Decoteaux Bates suggests that writers beware of critics when composing novel or opera trilogies, especially if they’re anything like The Borromean Cycle.

If you’re going to weed your garden, first check the astrological configuration in the Old Druids’ Almanac: Mike Phillips, Bone, Moon, Blood and Vine.
