Jim Baen's Universe 07 - Eric Flint

They almost seem to have this down to a fine art now. The last three issues have been almost the same, as far as the fiction goes. This one averages 3.39, in the middle of the 3.43 and 3.36 for issues 5 and 6. All 3 have had 9 stories rated above average (3.5 or more).

As far as the non-fiction goes, not as in depth or interesting as the last issue.

Flint's column is how it is basically impossible to find out about books because it is such an opaque market, and obscurity is a killer for authors.

There are articles on solar cells and physics in general, by Benford.

Resnick talks about germs and SETI.
