Asimov's August 2006

I've had a difficult week physically, so maybe that's why I didn't find as much to like in this issue. The only one I really liked was Ruth Nestvold's "Feather and Ring" - a Chinese deity intervenes, or does she? I didn't read the Stableford, I knew when I saw the cover for it -- a wooden ornamented rocketship aimed at a sun with a face, with a face in the rocket window wearing a ruff and a Van Dyke -- that it was some form of alt hist. I skimmed the first few pages and didn't want to read it, so I didn't.

There were lots of letters to Sheila about continuing the Sudoku, and there was a new puzzle in this issue that was developed by a reader.
