Zachary Jernigan. The War Is Over and Everyone Wins. (Asimovs January 2012)

I criticised the last story I reviewed in this issue of Asimovs of being too much in the Analog scientist fiction mode, whereas this is more typical of the softer socio-political Asimovs story that draws me to the magazine.

A family visit home by a young man after his grandfather’s death is the event around which the story pivots. Not much happens, other than interactions between him and his relatives, notably his father, but it is the background that fascinates, one in which race is still very much an issue in the near future, albeit with one major player in that complex puzzle removed from the equation.

    Mr. Watson should be appraised of the fact that”fascinates” is a verb and takes an object.
