• Editor Gordon Van Gelder addresses the recent controversy over adult material in Asimov's in his introduction to Matthew Hughes' story. And he revives F&SF's long-running series of competitions, with #68, asking readers to submit the missing pages that printers carelessly misplaced, thus explaining twist endings, e.g. "'No problem,' said Sauron. 'I'll just use my other ring.'" Entries can go to, and there are prizes at stake.
• Nick Gevers reviews this issue in the upcoming May issue of Locus Magazine.
