Strategist in Glass
by Daniel E. Blackston
Sometimes we encounter a writer that makes us wonder what the world would be like if it was fair. Daniel Blackston is one of those. We've seen a couple of his stories elsewhere, and damnit, that feller can write. If the world was fair, he'd have his own fan club. Publishers would be lined up outside his office, pushing and shoving each other to be the first to read his next story. His style and voice are extraordinary for someone with so few published works, but we suspect that his body of work (and reputation) will only grow. When he's all famous and stuff, just remember you saw him here first.
