Stories this month from Brenda Cooper, Sean Monaghan, Jim Grimsley, Jason Sanford, Sam J. Miller, Vylar Kaftan, Peter Wood. Reviews underway.
Asimov’s Science Fiction is the magazine that consistently provides, IMHO, the best short SF available.
A strong issue with lots of stories to like.
Several good stories, with Derek Kunsken the pick of the ish for me.
Wexler, Naylor and Das the pick of the issue for me.
There’s a lot in this double issue, although the more substantial stories don’t quite do it for me.
Suzanne Palmer starts the issue off with a strong story (overcoming the handicap of not having the first page of the story printed!)
Stories by Nick Wolven, Eneasz Brodski, and Derek Kunsken the pick for me.
The opening story from Rowe ends just when it’s getting going, and apart from that, only O’Connell provides anything that rises above the distinctly average.
