Pistol Grip, by Vina Jie-Min Prasad

★★☆☆☆ Not Recommended

(Military SF) An obsolete model of supersoldier is being phased out, but a couple of them decide to resist mass disposal and even get some payback. (1,907 words; Time: 06m)

"Pistol Grip," by (edited by Lynne M. Thomas and Michael Damian Thomas), appeared in issue 21, published on .

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

Pro: The assassination mission seems to have been a success, and we can certainly have little sympathy for people who so callously planned the mass murder of what used to be human beings (or so I gather from the description of the R9 series and the behavior of the two cyborgs).

Con: The plot is linear, and the extremely graphic sex scenes add nothing to the story.
