Magazine Description

In this issue

In Sean Monaghan’s tense August 2016 novelette, unforeseen dangers have disrupted an interstellar journey. Although the work of self-sacrificing astronauts has kept the spaceship running for hundreds of years, the voyage may soon be permanently altered by fresh “Wakers.” Asimov’s Readers’ Award winner Sandra McDonald’s “President John F. Kennedy, Astronaut” celebrates the spirit that motivates the brave men and women who are propelled to the stars in a wistful secret history of the space program; fellow Asimov’s Readers’ Award winner James Alan Gardner cunningly reveals “The Mutants Men Don’t See”; brand-new author Sieren Damsgaard Ernst looks deep into the past to explain the truth about “Kairos”; new to Asimov’s author Matthew Claxton examines the steep cost of bionic implants on the shores of “Patience Lake”; New York City is transformed beyond recognition in Jason Sanford’s “Toppers”; and renowned authors Kathe Koja & Carter Sholz skillfully introduce us to “KIT: Some Assembly Required.” In his August Reflections column, Robert Silverberg delves into ancient texts to crack “The Software of Magic”; James Patrick Kelly’s On the Net shows that he’s “Thinking about Dinosaurs”; Paul Di Filippo reviews works by Judith Merril, Allen M. Steele, China Miéville, and others; plus we’ll have an array of poetry and other features you’re sure to enjoy.
