The (mailing) envelope please
The December Locus finally came in the mail yesterday, and here's Rich Horton's review: "The December Fantasy Magazine features a strong story from Matthew Johnson, 'Holdfast.' The settings is somewhat Norse in flavor. Irrel is a farmer, with a wife, a young son, and a daughter who wants to marry the young man staying with them, and perhaps move to the city. There are dragons, and magic, and war, and Irrel knows some magic -- farm magic, which some denigrate. But the story -- very quietly told -- gently hints that his magic may be greater than many suspect -- in a quiet, homebound way."
