F&SF Jul/Aug 2017: Science and Film

Fantasy & Science Fiction Jul/Aug 2017

Columns from Fantasy & Science Fiction Jul/Aug 2017:

The many bees from the preceding story “I Am Not I” segue into Pat Murphy and Paul Doherty’s Science column “With the Best of Intentions,” which reports on the decline of bees, threats to their existence, and the repercussions of their dwindling populations.

David J. Skal gives us a twofer in his column on Films, “Ghoulies, Ghosties, Beasties,” reviewing Beauty and the Beast from both 1991 and 2017—comparing and contrasting, with plenty of “bonus” material on the director of the 2017 version, Bill Condon.
