Asimov's April/May 2011

The editorial is about steampunk and refers to Charlie Stross and Nisi Shawl.

I liked three pieces:

1. "Becalmed" by Kristine Kathryn Rusch -- part of her Diver's universe, would you be willing to get your memory back if it might get you executed?

2. "The One That Got Away" by Esther M. Friesner -- a woman of diverse morals tries to get a sailor to pay her for work, but instead ends up going away with him, where there's something she's never seen before.

3. "The Flow and Dream" by Jack Skillingstead -- a rocket has been damaged and only one man is alive. The Ship insists on following rules.
