    This issue has a collection of reasonably good stories. One story is surprisingly targeted at a well known politician of the time. Tom Purdom - Greenplace - 3 stars - The future of politics. A man injects himself with a drug which temporarily disables him physically while greatly enhancing his ability to sense the moods and feelings of the people around him. Then he has himself wheeled through a neighborhood so that he can determine which candidate those people will be supporting in the next elec This issue has a collection of reasonably good stories. One story is surprisingly targeted at a well known politician of the time. Tom Purdom - Greenplace - 3 stars - The future of politics. A man injects himself with a drug which temporarily disables him physically while greatly enhancing his ability to sense the moods and feelings of the people around him. Then he has himself wheeled through a neighborhood so that he can determine which candidate those people will be supporting in the next election. The story lacks consistency and takes too many shortcuts in logic. Dick Moore - After Everything, What? - 4 stars - Centuries ago a group of "supermen" had been developed genetically. They should have taken over the world by gradually replacing normal men. Instead, they died off and disappeared. Why? Jack Sharkey - Breakthrough - 4 stars - A man creates a very high-end computer system, confident that it is just a computer and can never demonstrate human style intelligence. When he finds out that he is probably mistaken, he has to decide what to do about it. Louis J. A. Adams - Dark Conception - 4 stars - A middle-aged black man brings his very young wife to a doctor to verify that, although she is pregnant she is also still a virgin. If so, she's obviously going to give birth to a new black Jesus. The doctor and the husband have very opposing views of how to handle society's problems. Sydney Van Scyoc - One Man's Dream - 4 stars - An old man has spent his life ignoring his wife and family while focused on a fantasy hero in his mind. When he is about to die, he pays to have himself put into a life extending sleep so that his fantasy hero doesn't die. Ultimately, his money runs out. An unusual story. Stephen Becker - The New Encyclopaedist III - 2 stars - An encyclopaedia entry for a future politician. Zzzzzz. Avram Davidson - Where Do You Live, Queen Esther? - 4 stars - A long-time maid, a mistress of the house who doesn't like her, a little bit of voodoo. A good story. Isaac Asimov - Science: The Black of Night - 3 stars - An explanation of why we don't have a glowing white night sky due to the number of stars in the universe. R. C. FitzPatrick - On The House - 4 stars - A young man is killed in a race riot. His mother doesn't blame the people involved in the riot, but does blame a certain politician who's attitude ultimately caused the riot. She calls on the devil to get her revenge. Harry Harrison - Portrait of the Artist - 4 stars - The future of cartoon artistry. Draw a general outline of what you want and then hand it over to the computer to finish it up. The computers just keep getting better and better and leave no future for the human artists. Richard Olin - Oversight - 3 stars - A man uses research into the unique properties of flat worms to modify himself physically until he becomes a superman. How can he be stopped? Adam Smith - The Third Coordinate (novelet) - 3 stars - Using a combination of space travel and inter-dimensional travel in order to travel long distances. A good human emotion story but very poor science.
