Summary: Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine, 2010

Summary: Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine, 2010

Andromeda Spaceways put out six issues in 2010, getting back on their historical bimonthly schedule. (In 2011 they plan to switch to quarterly, but thicker, issues.) These were #44 through #49. Those issues had a total of 56 stories, 13 novelettes, 43 short stories (six short-shorts), for a total of some 270,000 words. The magazine is based in Australia, and edited by a rotating group of people.

My favorite story was "Amor Vincit Omnia", by K. J. Parker (#45), about a young wizard trying to flush out and stop a potential outbreak of a truly dangerous spell. (This story also appeared at Subterranean.) I also liked Janeen Samuel's "My Brother Quentin" (#44), about a man who makes up stories about his non-existent brother; and Ferrett Steinmetz's "The Backdated Romance" (#47), a time travel story with a dark look at the effect of time traveling on romance; and Karl Bunker's "The Madison" (#49), a moving character-based look a man responsible for the imaging technology that helps discover life on Europa. Other good stories came from Anna Tambour, Stephen Marly, Tom Holt, Patty Jensen, Patrick S. Tomlinson, Jayaprakash Satyamurthy, Jamie Shanks, Marissa Lingen, and Leona Wisoker.

I counted 20 of 56 stories this year by women (36%). And I counted 27 SF stories, or about 48%.
