Some short fiction

I haven't been posting often recently because there haven't been too many good stories I've read recently. Here are 3 I read this week:
  1. [ss] Mike Resnick's "Treasure Island" (B); download; Subterranean Online, Spring 2011; non-genre, humor: Conman priest, Lucifer Jones, "helps" sea pirates recover treasure hidden on a Pacific island by one of their own.
  2. [novelette] Winston K Marks' "Backlash" (B); download; Galaxy, January 1954: A rather contrived alien invasion.
  3. [ss] Alan Cogan's "In the Cards" (B); download; Galaxy, June 1956: Future-viewer kill free will.
