Hugo and Retro Hugo nominations close tonight, so if you have been procrastinating your vote, time is running out. If you need a reminder list of some fantastic short stories eligible for the Retro Hugos, check out this list.
March has another Scide Splitters (in case you are wondering how that works, I am on a four week schedule at Amazing Stories). This time I look at Ben Bova’s The Starcrossed.
