The Cascadia Subduction Zone, Vol. 4, 3

Summer, oh summer, how I love it. Amazing things happen in summer, here in Seattle. For instance: the day before yesterday we had, out of the blue, a day in which the thermometer hit 94F. (It had mostly been in the 60s and 70s for all of June.) And voila, by zucchini tripled in size, and my tomato plants enjoyed a fabulous growth spurt.

And so, since it's July, the summer issue of The Cascadia Subduction Zone has arrived from the printer and is now available in print and digital editions here. This is another excellent issue, with poetry by Terry A. Garey (who will be a Guest of Honor at Diversicon later this month) and a retrospective essay on Garey's oeuvre. It also includes an insightful essay by Kim Stanley Robinson on The Female Man in particular and Joanna Russ in general, as well as a variety of reviews that will be of keen interest to Aqueduct readers, and art work by Mark Rich (who wears two of his large collection of hats in this issue).
