    Combining Science Fiction and Philosophy is a fantastic idea and the first edition of this new magazine proves that there is a lot food for thought. What I find very interesting is the fact that the old philosophers have already pondered on many essential questions and although they didn't have the scientific knowledge that we have (or believe to have) today they came up with plausible and convincing concepts. It's a big pleasure to re-discover them.

What I find very interesting is the fact that the old philosophers have already pondered on many essential questions and although they didn't have the scientific knowledge that we have (or believe to have) today they came up with plausible and convincing concepts. It's a big pleasure to re-discover them. From the stories I liked "Domo" and "Cosmic Foam" most. John C. Wright's "Ideal Machine" has good ideas and all the ingredients are there but I found the story uneven as if it couldn't decide what it want to tell us. From the articles I enjoyed most the ones about the philosophy in Matrix, implications of the Star Trek Prime Directive and personhood through the world of Sweet Tooth. I wonder why the editor has selected two articles about personhood. Stephen Hanson has a lot to say but I wish he would have applied the findings more to the world we live in. Are there groups that fulfill the criterias but are not accepted? Ruth Tallman does a better job to show the implications. I am looking forward to the next issues!

    I love the idea behind this journal. One of my favorite parts of the science fiction genre is that it allows us to explore big ideas, many of them philosophical in nature. Stories that ask solid "What if?" questions always make for an interesting read, and there were several such stories here. I particularly enjoyed Joshua M. Young's "Domo" and David Hallquist's "Falling to Eternity." I did find several typos that probably should have been caught before publication, but overall, I was very impre I love the idea behind this journal.

I definitely want to read more in the future.
