Fantasy and Science Fiction 669 - Gordon Van Gelder

When I saw the lineup and story titles for this issue, I didn't think I would like it as much as some others. Pretty much right by the looks, with a 3.36 average here being a bit down for this mag so far.

Elizabeth Hand takes a look at a publication of some old Arabian legends, and Lucius Shepard dissects Sunshine and others, and a rerelease of a decent old Dracula movie.

Call this a decent issue and with the non-fiction, a 4.
