My first review for The Portal is up now. It covers three stories appearing on Tor.com: Felix Gilman's novelette "Lightbringers and Rainmakers" (a companion piece to his new novel, The Half-Made World, which made something of a stir this year), Eileen Gunn's "The Perdido Street Project" (part of her "steampunk quartet" of homages to classic steampunk works), and Peter Orullian's "The Sacrifice of the First Sheason," set in his upcoming Vault of Heaven fantasy saga. Check it out here.
