- Edward M Lerner's "Calculating Minds" (A); download: Software trust issues for interstellar commerce (with aliens) in intellectual property.
It's in my "best of 2009" list. But see the caveats in head notes of my post first.
- Graham Edwards' "Riding the Drop" (B); download: I found it sort of boring. It's an adventure in the more-than-3-dimensional medium that contains all the worlds, & where many kinds of monsters live, & that has a "river" where all the dead go, etc.
- Bud Sparhawk's "Primrose Rescue"; download: I used to once like Sparhawk's stories, but now they appear to be just recycling of old stuff, & in stories that are way too long. I've been avoiding him off late, & haven't read this specific one.
- John Lambshead's "Storming Hell"; download; fantasy: Not read.
