Asimov's June

This issue seemed focused on future media, and I didn't enjoy those stories very much. They seemed too defined, not enough unknowns. I did like:

1. Life on the Preservation by Jack Skillingstead - when the Earth is devastated, a time-loop protects Seattle and a young girl is sent in to make Seattle just as devastated as everywhere else.

2. The Tiger in the Garden by Scott William Carter - humans on a small poor planet deal with patronizingly superior aliens.

3. The Edge of the Map by Ian Creasy - what if there really are dragons out there?

4. A Flight of Numbers Fantastique Strange by Beth Bernobich - a demented young woman tells her secret, but it's in numbers that only her brother can understand.
