When I first read this (1991) I laughed until I cried, literally, and have read it periodically since then. Still ecxellent!

I read this in Harper's Magazine, August 1991 edition, reprinting from Omni, April 1991.

FROM AMAZON: The Boba Fett series starts here! This adventure, which takes place between Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, follows Boba Fett as a teenager. On his home planet of Kamino, he has no friends, no school. The one thing he does have is a future as a bounty hunter like his father, Jango Fett. But when young Boba Fett finds himself alone in a dangerous galaxy, he must fight for safety—and vengeance. Boba Fett will grow up to be one of the most feared bounty hunters—but first he must survive his childhood.… (mere)

"How close the past looms, circling the present like a dead moon, lifting slow repetitious tides on the living planet."

I admit to being very partial to this, even before starting - it would be hard for me not to like a story about a New Africa forming in the USA. But I think the book is good even leaving aside my biases. It's told through 3 perspectives - the letters of a radicalising white abolitionist from the time of the revolution, the recollections of a Black doctor who was enslaved at the time, and a modern day perspective in a world where there's an attempted landing on Mars and a widespread socialist international and pan-African league. The book doesn't go into super detail on the "contemporary world" - enough to know it's mostly Good - but quite a lot on the Tubman/Brown army. There's a decent amount of the n-word, although it's understandable given the historical context it's about.… (mere)

Um compilado de diversos contos indicados e/ ou vencedores do Hugo, Nebula e outras premiações, escritos pelo autor Terry Brison. (Irei resenhando os que pegar, sem ordem específica)

Press Ann — 2/5 (Indicado ao Hugo, Nebula, e Asimov)

Uma espécie de… realismo-mágico versão sci-fi, onde uma dupla de ficantes, prestes a assistir um filme, se deparam com um caixa-automático senciente, que começa a sugerir opções estranhas que vão além de Saldo, Saque e Depósito.

Por exemplo, em determinado momento o Caixa-eletrônico faz perguntas incisivas sobre o relacionamento de ambos, invade a conta de um deles para provar um ponto, e até participa e sugere diferentes abordagens, tentando salvar a menina de um relacionamento tosco.

A ideia é ótima, e o fato de nada ser explicado me agrada, pois são apenas seis páginas. No entanto, o desfecho é bem piegas e nada surpreendente. Fica no ar para caso escritores desejem fazer uma melhor e mais trabalhada incursão no tema.
