12:43 am: Asimov's March 2012

Williams talks about a canon for short SF works, Silverberg talked about Atlantis, and James Patrick Kelly thinks websites are dying.

I liked:

"Nanny's Day" by Leah Cypress -- a law has been made so kids go with the people they're attached to; think your kids would like your nanny better?

"Mrs. Hatcher's Evaluation" by James Van Pelt -- a teacher is very close to being fired because she doesn't follow the rules of teaching, she just talks about things. Is that really bad?

"Golva's Ascent" by Tom Purdom -- a cat-like sapient is afraid humans will kill him.

Thanks for the nod to Mrs Hatcher. It was a fun one to write (and a bit close to home).

You're not following the rules of teaching? You're welcome -- I really liked it.
