Scholz, Kritzer, and Birnbach the pick of the issue for me.
Most of my reading of short stories pre-2000 was through the various Year’s Best anthologies. I started reading the big 4 magazines (Analog, Asimovs, F&SF, and Interzone) in 2000. You will find links to these individual magazines through the right-hand Categories menu.
Stories from Alex Irvine, David Gerrold, Matthew Hughes, Gregory Benford, Mary Robinette Kowal, Bennett North, Nick Wolven, Terry Bisson, Leo Vladimirsky, Betsy James, Albert E. Cowdrey, E. Lily Yu.
Notable for the Stross/Doctorow ‘Rapture of the Nerds’ novellas.
Stories this issue from Allen M. Steele, Dominica Phetteplace, Ian McHugh, Ted Kosmatka, Nathan Hillstrom, Robert R. Chase, Genevieve Williams
Bumper double issue.
Stories by Catherine Wells, Edward M. Lerner, Bud Sparhawk, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Brendan Dubois, Bill Johnson.
Stories by Gary Gibson, Julie C. Day, Greg Kurzawa, Rich Larson, Malcolm Devlin, and Ken Altabef.
A strong issue with good stories from vets like Greg Egan and Robert Reed, as well as the newer writers.
