Summary: Sybil's Garage, 2010

As usual there was one issue of Sybil's Garage this past year. The editor is Matthew Kressel. It's a stylishly put together magazine, There's plenty of poetry, art, and nonfiction in addition to the stories. There were 18 stories, all short, five short-shorts, for just about 60,000 words of fiction.

My favorite was Anil Menon's "The Poincaré Sutra", which I called (in Locus) "a perkily told but rather dark story of a 16-year-old Coptic girl in Israel, who falls in love with a Jewish boy while her father’s past pushes him in a different direction." I also enjoyed stories by Swapna Kishore, Sam Ferree, Alex Dally MacFarlane, A.C. Wise, E. C. Myers, and Amy Sisson.

I counted 8 SF stories of the 18 (44%), and 10 stories by women (55%), both proportions quite consistent with the 'zine's history.
