Magazine Description

In this issue

Elizabeth Bear is well known to Asimov’s readers. Two of her previous appearances, “Tideline” and “Shoggoths in Bloom,” resulted in Hugo Awards for best short story and novelette. She returns to our pages with a knockout novella set in an exquisitely realized future India. Police Sub-Inspector Ferron and Senior Constable Indrapramit must look for clues both in the real world and the virtual if they are to track down a clever murder. “In the House of Aryaman a Lonely Signal Burns” is a tale you won’t soon forget. Long before she became the extremely competent shuttle pilot of Jack McDevitt’s novels, Priscilla Hutchins received her training on a “Maiden Voyage”; new author Katherine Marzinsky gives us a heart-stopping look at what a robot might consider “Recyclable Material”; new author Eric Del Carlo examines just how hard it is to live in a world of “Friendlessness”; almost-new author Zachary Jernigan shows us why there is no cause for rejoicing when “The War Is Over and Everyone Wins”; new author for Asimov’s, though well known at Analog, C.W. Johnson reveals the terror behind “The Burst”; and the Arthur C. Clarke- and John W. Campbell Memorial-award-winning author, Paul McAuley, takes us to a distant planet to show us why criminals who are born to run will follow their hungry hearts through the badlands to discover if they will be the last to die or live to see the light of day in the awesome “Bruce Springsteen.” Robert Silverberg’s “Reflections” tracks down “Rare Earths, Getting Rarer”; James Patrick Kelly’s “On the Net” delivers the “Son of Ebooks, the Next Generation, Vol. III”; and we’ll have Paul Di Fillipo’s “On Books” column. We’ll also feature our Index of 2011 stories, poems, and columns; our annual Readers Award Ballot; plus an array of poetry and other items you’re sure to enjoy.
