Gennesaret, by Phoenix Alexander

★★☆☆☆ Not Recommended

(SF) Alissha flees the tyranny that has taken over her land and makes a dangerous crossing of the strait to an enemy country. (3,931 words; Time: 13m)

"," by (edited by Scott H. Andrews), appeared in issue 246, published on .

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Alissha is a refugee, but much more alien than any we see in our world. She pays an awful price, losing her home and her child, and arrives among people very different from her, some of whom want to kill her, some of whom want to use her, and the rest seem very superficial.

Con: It’s almost all message with very little story.
