Asimov's Septermber 2010

Sheila's editoral was about the Reader's Awards; Silverberg was about Asimov, but I didn't read that. There was a special essay by Aliette de Bodard on SF from non-Western countries.

There's five stories in this issue, and I truly thought one was great; I may nominate it next year:

Nancy Fulda's "Backlash" is about time travel and terrorists, and has excellent plot, characters, and action.

The others were all okay, but didn't really hit me like Fulda's did.
