I'm spoiled by the modern F&SF. There's no way to mince around--this was a difficult read, and I ended up skimming through the end of several stories. A lot of golden age sci-fi (and this is largely sci-fi or weird) rubs me the wrong way, not just because of how women and other cultures are portrayed, but because of the slow pace.

My favorite story was actually the first in the magazine, "The Custodians" by Richard Cowper, wherein a monastic order guards a special insight into the future. "The Pearcey Boy" by R. Bretnor was a tragic piece of horror. The movie review for the issue was Monty Python and the Holy Grail! I also enjoyed Asimov's nonfiction column about elements.

There were also curious artifacts of 1975. I was also amazed by the full-color cigarette ad in the middle on the magazine, and the back page included classified ads for mail order brides from Japan and Mexico. Yikes. ( )
