Asimov’s Science Fiction is the magazine that consistently provides, IMHO, the best short SF available.
Cover by Maurizio Manzieri. Stories by Suzanne Palmer, David Erik Nelson, Lavie Tidhar, Kara Dalkey, Ian Creasey, Sylvain Jouty, James Van Pelt, Nancy Kress. Reviews to follow.
Not a particularly strong issue, with only the Cat Rambo likely to stick in the mind.
A strong issue with Maurice Broaddus, Maggie Shen King, and Sarah Pinsker my picks.
Stories this month from : de Bodard, Collins, Kress, McHugh, Jablonksy, Tem, with Collins and Jablonsky the pick of the bunch.
After a couple of weak opening stories, the issue gathers momentum to become an excellent final issue for 2013. Shame about the cover.
A bumper double-issue offering ‘a mix of terrifying chills and SF thrills’ : exactly what you want on a muggy mid-August evening. Gregory Frost and Igor Teper the pick of an otherwise average bunch for me..
Drop-dead gorgeous cover by Kinuko Craft, and the pick of the stories from Ian R. MacLeod and Benjamin Crowell.
