Asimov's June 2012


Williams talked about whether we can actually write beings that seem alien, Silverberg brings up rereading PKD, and Kelly gives us the news on the Encyclopedic.

I liked these:

1. "Waiting at the Altar" by Jack McDevitt - this is a Hutchins prequel and she learns surprising things.

2. "The Flowering Ape" by Alan DeNiro - a far future where different young people are still hazed.

3. "The Widdershins Clock" by Kali Wallace - the protagonist's grandmother disappears and leaves her a very strange clock.

4. "Free Range" by Bruce McAllister - you'd never guess the things large black telepathic chickens can do.

I also really liked Jane Yolen's poem, "Objectifying Faerie."
