Our April/May 2015 double anniversary issue is another jampacked edition of Asimov’s. Eugene Fischer’s cover story chronicles a pregnant reporter’s investigation of a mysterious illness that has the potential to cause massive society upheaval and which will certainly engender repercussions for “The New Mother.” We’ve managed to smush a second novella into the issue as well. Find out what the future holds for “The Children of Gal” in Allen M. Steele’s riveting conclusion to his Arkwright series. We have quite a Philadelphian contingency: Michael Swanwick & Gregory Frost warn it’s best to “Lock Up Your Chickens and Daughters—H’ard and Andy Are Come to Town!”; Tom Purdom forecasts the future of the “Day Job”; and Fran Wilde shows us “How to Walk Through Historic Graveyards in the Post-Digital Age.” British author Liz Williams takes a look at the bride’s fate in “The Marriage of the Sea,” while Australian author Anna Tambour creates an otherworldly clash in “The Gun Between the Veryush and the Cloud Mothers.” Jay O’Connell weaves together “Willing Flesh”; new author Frank Smith finds that “The Sentry” is always on duty; Joe M. McDermott tells the poignant story of “Paul and His Son”; and Robert Reed takes stock of the Wow! signal in “What I Intend.” Robert Silverberg’s Reflections column considers whether “Praising or Banning” is best; Norman Spinrad’s On Books examines “Schlock, Genre and Mainstream SF”; plus we’ll have an array of poetry and other features you’re sure to enjoy.
