Clarkesworld Magazine Issue 82

Clarkesworld Magazine Issue 82 - Neil Clarke I generally liked the issue. It wasn't quite as good as previous issues this time around, but the quality is still very high. I was however disappointed by the number of errors in The Dust Assassin. It was a great story, but the missing words and formatting glitches made it frustrating to read.

The standout story was the classic entry 'The Illustrated Biography of Lord Grimm.' An interested look at a superhero story from the perspective of the regular citizens caught in the crossfire of a war between the superheroes and the super-villian. At its essence it was a kind of origins story, but it also covered other themes. It's worth buying this issue for this story alone.
