F&SF April 2007

A reasonable issue of F&SF. Most of the stories were interesting and enjoyable and good solid stories.

My favorite was actually "Memorare" by Gene Wolfe, who was the featured author of this special issue. I have never read Gene Wolfe before, but the description of his work and themes along with this story have sparked my interest. The story was a nice portrayal of a man who makes documentaries about orbital tombs that can often be very dangerous. The main female character was a little too "perfect-babe-esque" but the protagonist realized this and commented upon it. The story actually managed to shock me with a couple things that occurred. Definitely something to remember come Hugo-time.
