The stories tend towards the light-hearted -- which fits my tastes perfectly.
Issue 25, the current issue, has some fantastic stories. Right out of the box, they hit you with two great ones: "The Mana Bar Kid" and "Knight Wanted." Both of these tales have great story hooks. The first is a play on the old "kids starving in Africa" line parents give finicky kids at the dinner table. Throw in a matter transporter to actually send the food to those kids -- and a stranger at the door -- and you have a really quirky story. "Knight Wanted" unfolds as a king holds a 21st-century-style interview for a knight -- with a satisfyingly clever twist at the end.
