Not a lot there that I remember from F&SF last year.

What do you think of Albert Cowdrey's stuff? I'll be honest, after the first half-dozen or so (F&SF prints a lot of his work) I got really tired of his schtick. It's picked up some sentimental energy since Katrina, but it still feels rote, and more dialect than style, to me.


There are only five stories from F&SF.

I've not read much of Cowdrey; this story struck me as conceptually interesting, but not well structured--he doesn't really pull off the trick at the plot's center.
