There’s a lot in this double issue, although the more substantial stories don’t quite do it for me.

Dale Bailey and Eric Schwitzgabel the pick of the bunch for me.
Suzanne Palmer starts the issue off with a strong story (overcoming the handicap of not having the first page of the story printed!)

Stories by Nick Wolven, Eneasz Brodski, and Derek Kunsken the pick for me.
The opening story from Rowe ends just when it’s getting going, and apart from that, only O’Connell provides anything that rises above the distinctly average.
Slightly more lighter stories than the norm, making the issue a gentle read. The Reed story was OK, but not up there with his Great Ship stories, and the one SF story didn’t really gr

Not the strongest Asimovs double-issue – Sellar, Bailey, DuBois tickling this reader’s fancy more than the bigger names (Kelly, Rusch, Steele).

Onyebuchi and Palwick the pick of the issue for me.
Boyer’s Bartleby the Scavenger a strong story that kept me engrossed, but the rest of the issue much less so.
Pinsker and O’Connell leave the best of the issue to last.
Clearly something is wrong with the time-space continuum as there’s way too much content to fit into even 250-odd pages, and it must be something to do with superdense dark matter that has meant I’ve been reading the issue since April. And there’s some excellent stories in the issue.
Katherine E.K. Duckett’s plastinated mortuaries the pick of the issue for me.
Stories by Reed, Jablokov and McDonald the pick of the bunch for me.

Stories by Carole Johnstone, James Van Pelt, Sean McMullen, Greg Kurzawa, Ken Altabef, with Johnstone the pick of the bunch sf-wise.
After a couple of weak opening stories, the issue gathers momentum to become an excellent final issue for 2013. Shame about the cover.
Altabef and Campion the pick of the issue for me.
A bumper double-issue offering ‘a mix of terrifying chills and SF thrills’ : exactly what you want on a muggy mid-August evening. Gregory Frost and Igor Teper the pick of an otherwise average bunch for me..
Most of the stories provide something just a little different, to engage the reader, with Johnson and Suggars the pick of the bunch for me.

Vaughn, Rucker and Di Filippo, Schwartz, and Rick Wilber the pick of the issue.
Stories by Robert Reed, G. David Nordley, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Eric Del Carlo, Megan Arkenberg. A fairly weak issue, truth be told, with Reed taking up a lot of space, but to slightly less than usual effect.
A bit of a curate’s egg of an issue – good in parts, less so in others – stories by Neal Asher, Joel Richards, Colin P. Davies, Alan Wall, Tom Purdon, Linda Nagata, Karl Bunker, Naomi Kritzer, Leah Cypess, Ken Liu.
Stories by William Preston, Dale Bailey, Robert Reed, Chris Willrich, Matthew Johnson, Suzanne Palmer.
