Colin P. Davies. Julian of Earth. (Asimovs April/May 2013)

asimovs130405On an out of the way planet, a young man earns his keep by providing guided tours of the forest where, as a young boy, he was rescued by the titular Julian, when lost in the forest. The legend of this Earthman, living for decades amongst the indigenous creatures in the forests has earned him enough to get by and to keep his mother, confused in her old age. Trouble is, the rescue never happened, and when a film crew come to make a documentary, he has to go deep into the forest, and into his memory and ethics.

Good as far as it goes, but nothing particularly noteworthy when reading it, and nothing to stick in the memory much after reading it.
