Part Two of Stephen Gaskell's novelette "On the Winds of the Rub' Al-Khali" concludes the tale of a young Bedouin boy with a talent for math. Because he is uneducated, he may be better able to learn from the alien device that has baffled mathematicians ever since it landed in Africa -- but even abstract math can have real-world consequences. If you missed Part One, it was published in Issue 42.
"Meat and Greet," by Jamie Todd Rubin, is another short short -- an amusing meta look into the world of publishing, told through the eyes of an agent listening to pitches from some of the greatest literary minds of previous generations.
This issue's audio production, " The Ghastly Thing," written by Kevin McNeil and read by award-winning performer Emily Rankin, shows the challenges of a truly Ghastly Thing as it undergoes a series of encounters with a young girl who seems unwilling to believe that all who gaze upon it will instantly die.
And be sure not to miss "At The Picture Show: Extended Cut," an in-depth article by our regular film critic, Chris Bellamy.
