Sara Genge writes a complex story of alien sex with her "Prayers for an Egg." Like Tiptree whose work this was reminiscent of, Genge is an outsider, Tiptree coming from Langley and the mainstream, Genge from Spain; her rhythm and cadences equally exotic to American genre SF.
These stories mark the highpoint of this issue, their 'difference' from the norm giving the issue a rare depth.
And because I have a twisted feminist mind, I'll note that all three writers I've so far been compared to are women. Not that I mind, not with those three. Just sayin'
I think "exotic" needs to become part of my name, somehow. Sara Genge, aka "Exotic". Sooo cool.
