ISF 2 December 2012 Execution Version

Oh, how I would love to deliver a copy of ISF #2 to each of you in person. I would ride in my magic sleigh with a bunch of magazines in my bag and, while traveling around the globe, I would stop briefly and knock on your door. (Did you think I was going to just break in without warning and leave the magazine in your living room after eating all your cookies?—ha, ha.) Smiling, I would say: “dear reader, here’s our latest number, full of breathtaking stories magically crafted by Nas Hedron, Lavie Tidhar, and Ken Liu, and with a really cool interview with Rachel Haywood Ferreira. Please accept it and read it with care—this is our baby and we’re trusting you with him! Then, as I get ready to fly to the next house, to another location with another reader like you, I’d say “you’ll find a common theme in these stories.” You’d look curious and I’d add “a theme that’s common to all of us, you know?”

Wouldn’t that be great? Read the rest of this entry »

ISF # 2 REVIEWED BY CARLA M. SOARES

ISF # 2 – December 2012 reviewed by Carla M. Soares (Portuguese author):

Overall appreciation:

Reading each of the three excellent short tales by Nassau Hedron, Lavie Tidhar and Ken Liu presented in ISF #2 was a pleasure. The underlying thread serving as a central motif, the idea of love, connects the stories, but results in very different voices and rhythms and very different, but equally interesting narratives. The stories are original, very well written and result in a compelling and challenging reading.

This issue also offers a rather interesting interview with scholar and SF researcher Rachel Haywood Ferreira, but what you won’t want to miss are the short stories. Really!

1 – Siren Songs in Deep Time by Nassau Hedron:

Nassau Hedron’s beautiful story, Siren Songs in Deep Time, is a very well thought of and very well written story that spans across time, in a few very short and well knit together chapters, from Greece in World War II – though we are made to know that the story began long long before, maybe in the beginning of times – to somewhere in space sometime in an undefined future. It is very interesting to see very intense moments in recent History serve as a setting for a wonderful tale of inevitability that resembles the eternal repetition of History and human life – which inevitably ends in death and separation. It is also a love story, or many, since in each chapter a different story begins and ends. It is never bitter, though it is sometimes a little sad, like a sweet siren’s love song. The end surprised me, though maybe it shouldn’t have, because in a story about love(s) this siren’s last love is indeed the ultimate and most irrational and animal form of love. And the one that can change everything. Read the rest of this entry »
