Robert Reed. Buffalo Wolf. When ‘Raven Dream’ appeared in the Dec 2001 issue of F&SF I noted it was very much an opening story in a sequence, with only a little revealed to start with. ‘Buffalo Wolf’ continues the story, and more is made clearer, although the overall impression is very much of Gene Wolfe, […]

Doing the Unstuck. Paul Di Filippo. The angst of teen Goth Erin is painfully observed, and set to the music of The Cure (I was more of a Siouxsie and the Banshees person myself). Erin has the attitude and the fashion sense, but lacks the crowning glory – the tousled hair a la Robert Smith. […]
Not the strongest of issues, a bit of a surprise considering Reed, Cassutt, Robertson and Baxter being on the front cover.
Robert Reed. The Caldera of Good Fortune. Reed further mines The Great Ship in his ‘Marrow’ setting to further good, if not great, effect. For those not in the know, said Ship is a vast (I mean, really, really, really vast) spaceship of non-human origin, colonised by a vast range of races as it makes […]

Scarily, part of the background is that the trip is against a backdrop of women disappearing : there are ‘missing’ posters […]
William Barton. The Gods of A Lesser Creation. Barton returns to the setting of previous stories of his ‘Heart of Desire’ (Asimovs Jan 2000) and ‘The Engine of Desire’ (Asimovs Aug 2002), and explores similar themes of what it is to be human, through HLL-357 a genmod cyborg, half-human and half-god and half-mechanical (OK math […]
Ruth Nestvold. Looking Through Lace. Anthropological and xeno-linguistic SF are probably to Asimovs what Scientist SF is to Analog, and there is a danger in using these softer sciences to set up a puzzle which needs solving in the same way as Scientist Fiction uses physics or chemistry to set up a similar conundrum. Ursula […]
