Ramek the Mighty,
As a fan of sci fi I am most happy to see someone reviving this genre. I agreed with your preface about the state of science fiction today. I thought the stories were good though I was not so much a fan of the ‘west coast ghost train’ story, which felt unfinished or hasty somehow.
Tidings, early-Kali midgardman. You are not the only one to claim that this story was among their least favourite, Luckily the enigmatic and rarely seen ‘Miguel Asterias’ is busy in the dimension of Mr. Jelly and cannot address your criticism with the murderous vengeance that I know he feels.
Personally I was fond of that story. But in all art, earthman, subjectivity plays its part.
