Asimov's June 2009

This is the 25th year that James Patrick Kelly has had a story in the June issue and there's a series of small complimentary essays about that and him. His "On the Net" column this issue covers the generation and gender gaps on the web. For me, his novelette Going Deep had the wrong ending.

The two stories I liked were the other two novelettes:

1. Controlled Experiment by Tom Purdom -- a man who killed a police officer is placed in a public environment with people paid to live near as an experiment.

2. Sails the Morne by Chris Willrich -- a cargo ship with three hostile ambassadors hauls them and a portion of The Book of Kells to an exposition on another planet. The BoK is wanted by many people and must be preserved.
