Stories by Allen M. Steele, Gord Sellar, Dale Bailey, Emily C Skaftun, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Kate Bachus, Brendan DuBois, Joel Richards, James Patrick Kelly, Robert R. Chase, Jeff Grimshaw, Jason Sanford, Tim McDaniel. Reviews underway.
Asimov’s Science Fiction is the magazine that consistently provides, IMHO, the best short SF available.
Onyebuchi and Palwick the pick of the issue for me.
Pinsker and O’Connell leave the best of the issue to last.
Stories by Reed, Jablokov and McDonald the pick of the bunch for me.
Book-ended by stories at the beginning and end of the volume which I enjoyed, but with the rest of the issue not doing as much for me.
Double issue with names Big and Little, and William Preston, Michael Swanwick and Joe M. McDermott the pick of the issue.
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.
