Magazine Description

In this issue

April/May is another one of our jam-packed double issues. We’ve somehow managed to cram two gigantic novellas into this one issue with room left over for a host of terrific short stories. Our cover story is James Patrick Kelly’s stand-alone sequel to “Men Are Trouble”—his Nebula nominated tale of an Earth where aliens have expunged all the men. Now the women are about to find out what will happen at “The Last Judgment.” The exquisite details in David Ira Cleary’s huge new novella may make you think you really are “Living in the Eighties.” When you pay a visit to the bustling space station in Ian Creasey’s new story, be sure to leave room in your bags for “Souvenirs.” While eagle-eyed readers may notice that we’re running Tom Purdom stories back to back, next month’s tale couldn’t be more different from our March cover story. Set in the near future, Tom’s April/May tale will allow you some quiet time to start “Bonding with Morry.” Josh Roseman shows us why even in the future, neither the grass nor your next relationship may be “Greener” on the other side of the fence; Sandra McDonald’s “Sexy Robot Mom” displays some amazing fortitude and perseverance; baseball season is upon us in Rick Wilber’s “Something Real”; Gray Rinehart makes his Asimov’s debut with a fast-paced story about a “Sensitive, Compartmented”; and Carol Emshwiller tells a lovely tale of revelations revealed while “Riding Red Ted and Breathing Fire.” Robert Silverberg’s discussion of a concert suitable for Roger Zelazny’s Slow Kings in April/May’s Reflections identifies why some music must be played “As Slow as Possible” and Norman Spinrad’s “On Books” comments on some “Alternate Realities”; plus we’ll have an array of poetry and other features you’re sure to enjoy.
