Ken Liu. The Countable. (Asimovs, December 2011)

An effective story, which gets into the head of a young autistic man, as we find out exactly what has brought him to the attention of the authorities. There’s a lot going on inside his head, and his domestic situation doesn’t help matters, and Liu balances this with a lot of pure mathematics (diagrams supplied) which means about as much to me as subtle nonverbal communications are to people with an autistic spectrum disorder!
