Asimov's February 2010

Sheila wrote about two women who helped her in her career and Silverberg talked about how he thinks Clarke was a bad writer.

As to the stories, I couldn't even read two of them. One was a pastiche/homage to PKD by Damien Broderick (I read four pages) and an althist by Stephen Baxter (read two pages). They're not badly written, I just don't like PKD's vogelsangeren or althist in general.

The only story I really liked was a ghost story -- The Woman Who Waited Forever by Bruce McAllister -- and normally I wouldn't like that.
