Mark Watson over at Best SF praises the latest issue of Sybil’s Garage. Mark says, “The magazine certainly oozes quality and class…[it’s] clearly put together with a huge amount of love and attention to detail…[All the stories] are very, very well written, and if it’s literary speculative fiction you’re after Sybil’s Garage has it in spades. Highlights for me were :
- Kathryn E. Baker’s ‘By Some Illusion’ opens with a tender look at a relationship that is sensual in its focus on touch, sight, smell, taste, and whilst it is sapphic it isn’t prurient.
- Swapna Kishore’s ‘The Unbeing of Once-Leela’ takes us to a quite different place, but with humanity still there, with karma and memories to be addressed.
- Hal Duncan’s ‘The Tale of the Six Monkey’s Tails’ provides some Oriental monkey-based relief (which no magazine should be without.)
- M.K. Hobson’s ‘Kid Despair in Love’ takes a slightly skew-whiff squinty look at Big Business and the CEOs who run them.”
