Asimov's July 2008

This was a strange issue. A lot of the stories seemed less SF and more absurdist. I admit that I didn't read the Brian Stableford novella The Philosopher's Stone because the lead-in said it was the third story about an alternate universe and I had to plow through the first two and didn't feel like plowing through this one. The only story I really liked:

The Woman Under the World by Steven Utley - what happens when a transdimensional portal has a little blip and something that thinks it's the transported person shows up?
