Comment: F&SF May 2007

Many of the stories in this F&SF were solid, but took negative (dystopian) terms at the very end that, in my opinion, diminished the story and made it less enjoyable for me.

My favorite was the novella "The Master Miller's Tale" by Ian R. MacLeod. It was a nice, engrossing, enjoyable story about a miller of flour and the twists and turns his life takes. I found it touching, with a strong sense of place and character. It could be a Hugo nominee for me.

I also enjoyed the novelette "Kaliedoscope" by K. D. Wentworth, the story of a woman who is moving through a multiplicity of realities and has to figure out what she wants and how she can keep hold of it.
