The Summary for April's F&SF
"First Editions" John Stoddard (good)
"Five Thrillers" Robert Reed (excellent)
"The Nocturnal Adventure of Dr. O and Mr. D." Tim Sullivan (meh)
"The Fountain of Neptune" Kate Wilhelm (good)
"The 400-Million-Year Itch" Steve Utley (OK)
Robert Reed is in top form, Stoddard and Wilhelm are fun and interesting, and those more than makes up for the average quality stories from Sullivan and Utley.
You know, it turns out I don't skip as many stories when I read these issues as I thought I was. It speaks highly of the general level of quality that even mediocre stories seem to usually hold my interest.
