Fantastic Stories of the Imagination is back with issue #234 with stories by Terence Taylor, Sunil Patel, Allen M. Steele, David G. Blake, and Fraser Ronald, along with many other features.

Fantastic Stories of the Imagination #234 with two new stories and three reprinted ones. It is available online and in an epub edition.

The first new story is "Starf*ckers" by Terence Taylor. -+- Martin Dutton uses the eponymous time travel service to get a young James Dean (even before New York television) and Marilyn Monroe (when she was still Norma Jean) into his bed for a night of drugs and sex before they are mind-wiped and sent back into the past but things do not go as planned. Sleazy, but I guess that's the point. Story is just Okay.

The second new story is "When She Was Five" by Fraser Ronald. -+- In this elegant flash fiction tale, a girl goes from five to thirty, following in her mother's footsteps. Nicely done.

There are also three reprinted stories: "Marcie's Waffles Are the Best in Town" by Sunil Patel, "The Other Side of Jordan" by Allen M. Steele, and "Winter of the Scavengers" by David G. Blake. I do not review reprinted stories but I hope you enjoy them.

The stories in Fantastic Stories of the Imagination are always available, you can check them out at their website (see link at the top of this review).
