Don’t miss our May/June 2020 compelling novelettes! In “Tunnels,” Eleanor Arnason escorts us to a distant future where her characters discover a complex web of dangerous intrigue. The world of Ian R. MacLeod’s brilliant tale, “The Mrs. Innocents,” which is both similar and very different from our own, hinges on one woman’s powerful sacrifice.

You’ll find some more exceptional novelettes. “Ronni and Rod” face catastrophic disaster in David Gerrold & Ctein’s new tale; James Gunn’s “Against the Stars” continues the pursuit of a mysterious A.I.; a young woman comes of age in Tegan Moore’s “Perfect Blue”; and in his first story for Asimov’s, Brad Aiken teams with Rick Wilber, one of the magazine’s veteran authors, for a trip to “Ithaca.” Ian Watson’s short story investigates the classic “Brave New World by Oscar Wilde”; torn with guilt, Bruce McAllister’s hero must listen to “The Voice”; new to Asimov’s author Alice Towey takes us to “The River” to experience a young woman’s excruciating adaptation to a brain implant; another new to Asimov’s author Evan Marcroft visits the gods in “Pax Mongolica”; and Dominica Phetteplace imagines a chilling future in “Digital Witness.” You’ll be “Living in Wartime” in the issue’s thrilling novella by R. Garcia y Robertson!

We anticipate a very special Guest Editorial by astronaut Cady Coleman; Robert Silverberg’s Reflections column reels in “The One That Gets You Hooked”; James Patrick Kelly’s On the Net posits “Two Dooms”; Norman Spinrad’s On Books reviews novels by Chen Qiufan and Ma Jian as well as the anthology, Invisible Planets, edited and translated by Ken Liu, to give us a look at Modern Chinese Science Fiction—Windows into China; plus we’ll have an array of poetry and additional features you’re sure to enjoy. Look for our May/June 2020 issue on sale at newsstands on April 21, 2020.
