Analog. October 2012.

Stories this month:

Juliette Wade. The Liars.

Linda Nagata. Nahiku West.

Subsequently collected by Rich Horton in ‘The Year’s Best Science Fiction & Fantasy 2013’, where I read it and wrote :

    Nahiku West is one of a pair of tethered orbitals, and in surviving what should have been a fatal accident when traversing between the pair, one Key Lu signs his own death warrant, and the technology (the ‘quirk’) that he has embedded is illegal, upon pain of death.

    This sets in train a murder mystery, with some quite clever elements to the backstory and setting, all of which are put in place and brought to a conclusion in quick time – imagine a five minute version of Blade Runner!

Michael F. Flynn. The Journeyman: On the Short-Grass Prairie

Jay Werkheiser. Ambidextrose

Michael Alexander. Deer in the Garden
