03:56 pm: Asimov's January 2008
Sheila has an interesting editorial on "Harry Potter and the Future of Reading" in this issue.

I also liked:

1. Alastair Baffle's Emporium of Wonder by Mike Resnick -- two guys have been business partners until they go into a retirement home, is it okay to become young again?

2. "The Beautiful and the Damned" by F. Scott Fitzgerald by Tanith Lee -- there's a new plague out and cities are being domed to keep it in, but it's not the kind of plague you expect.

The Resnick story was very well done. I met him at Dragon*Con.

Yes, and I don't like all his stories, so I was glad to like this one.

That's quite understandable.

My subscription seems to be getting timelier -- you used to review Asimov's weeks before I'd get my copy, but I already have this one and am halfway through it. (Just read the Tanith Lee story tonight, in fact.) I'd be done with it already except that I was beta-reading Mary Kuhner's new thing instead.

Oh, you're missing data. It actually came about two weeks ago, but I was reading The True Game for bookgroup. It's a trilogy, so I had to start earlier than usual (usually I start the Saturday before) and didn't read the Asimov's until after bookgroup.

I can't handle beta reading, even for someone whose books I know I like. I get too involved in what I think needs to be done and miss the story.
