Greetings, fellow Earthlings!
Feelings are fizzy here on the vast Wisconsin prairie, what with the Rhysling Long Poem win and all. Given that a disproportionate number of SFPA award nominations come from Star*Line, from which we exclude ourself whilst Editor, we are especially delighted!
We are lately returned from Convergence, present there thanks to the kindness of Bryan Thao Worra and Ruth Berman, and are now burning the black and glutinous atrament gushing from long-after-midnight wells, although we periodically step out on the aft deck to breathe the stars hovering over the glorious realm of Summer.
Our estival cover art is a late-medieval classic depicting a charming islet that is the minuscule home of a ludicrously deformed horse—or is it instead … AN ALIEN HORROR—juxtaposed with a perfectly ordinary angel and an admiring mermaid. We have noted before that a number of medieval artists seem to depict horses far less realistically than supposedly fabulous creatures for which they are presumed not to have had actual models, for instance unicorns and dragons. Perhaps such implicit bestiaries indicate that evolutionary history as we know it is not as reliable as we suppose.…
Let us further the imaginary.
— F.J. Bergmann, Star*Line Editor
