3. Asimov's March 2015

I enjoyed this installment of Asimov's. If I were to give it a theme this month it would be old school science fiction. Gregory Normal Bossert's "Twelve And Tag" could have taken place on Samuel R. Delany's "Triton". Suzanne Palmer's "Tuesdays" has a classic sci-fi short story final line kick. Gwendolyn Clare's "Holding The Ghosts" makes good on a creepy, quite believable, scenario.

4. Jasper Fforde "The Eye Of Zoltar"

The Eye was a fun book, but it feels like the story arc is starting to weigh down the books. The humor is kind of squished and the action feels somewhat obligatory. It's almost as is the characters are stand ins, ala Thursday Next when the real characters are on vacation and the reader gets a fill in.
