Near-future military SF, with an interesting structure, but just a little too detached for me.
Effective story of a displaced person and a displaced people, in which Johnson uses a shared dreamspace VR to good effect.
A protagonist that is a sort of combo of Ellen Ripley and Florence Nightingale in a story of geriatric zombification…
Rudy Rucker and Bruce Sterling. Colliding Branes. Gonzo fun, as you might expect from Rucker
Kathleen Ann Goonan. Memory Dog. The issue opens with a very clever and accomplished story
Mary Rosenblum. Breeze From the Stars. An almost quintessential Asimovs story. Jeri is in low
Rucker, Reed, Skillingstead and Kelly do it for me. Carter, Johnson, Creasey and Bernobich don’t, which makes it a 50/50 split, whereas I tend to get a 75/25 or 80/20 from Asimovs.
