    1 thought on “Asimov's Science Fiction, July 2015 (Asimov's Science Fiction, #474)”

    1. Overall, a pretty good issue."Pollen from a Future Harvest" by Derek Künsken has a really interesting premise involving intelligent plants that send their pollen back through time to optimize their evolution over longer time periods, and some rubble scientists who plan to bootstrap their technology by piggybacking experimental data on that pollen. Major Okonkwo is called in to audit the plans and make sure there will be no paradoxes. Fascinating concepts, but I didn't really care for the exposi [...]

    2. A better than average issue of Asimov's. With an interesting tale by Mary Robinette Kowal and Will Ludwigsen and a cracker of a tale by Derek Künsken. David Gerrold's tale promises much but, to me, didn't deliver the goods while Rudy Rucker delivers a so-so tale (compared to his previous mind-bending stuff).- "Like Native Things" by Mary Robinette Kowal: a fascinating story set in a time when people can inhabit the bodies of animals via neural networks. A researcher who has managed the difficul [...]

    3. There were a lot of really intriguing ideas in this issue. I particularly loved the alien interpretation of future and past in "Pollen from a Future Harvest," and the immersive world-building in David Gerrold's "The Great Pan-American Airship Mystery, or, Why I Murdered Robert Benchley." "Acres of Perhaps" was fabulous as well, but for different reasons. The depth of character and developing relationships in it were wonderfully realistic and engaging.

    4. An excellent collection of absorbing and fascinating tales in this issue. Very well worth reading from David Gerrold's funny tale, "The Great Pan American Airship Mystery Or Why I Had to Kill Robert Benchley" to Derek Kunsken's "Pollen From a Future Harvest", every story is a great example of Science Fiction.

    5. A weak issue with a weak standout in Pollen from a Future Harvest. Like Schools of Clay by Kunsken, this was very difficult to follow, but unlike Schools, had way less of a pay off. Acres of Perhaps was a solid spooky story by Will Ludwigsen, and probably the best in the issue.

    6. This issue - one of my favorites - made me realize that I prefer longer fiction. I have trouble getting truly enmeshed in a world or the characters if the piece is too short. I have similar trouble with comic books - the momentum always seems to get cut off right when it gets going.Like Native Things by Mary Robinette KowalIn this story, humans are able to 'control' animals (including sharks, octopi, and more) with the help of some fancy neural tech. Great spec-fic element exploration for sure. [...]

    7. This was a fun edition. I really enjoyed "The Great Pan American Airship Mystery, or Why I Murdered Robert Benchley." The story is an "alternative history" where airships rule the clouds, thanks to Tesla's discovery of the process of extracting helium from coal. Several famous personalities and writers from the 1930's are mentioned in the story, which adds to the fun. "Acres of Perhaps" is based on the writers of a late-night show, sort of "Twilight Zone." "Like Native Things" is a look at what [...]

    8. I don't think there were any stories in this issue that I actually really liked. The best in my opinion was the first one, Like Native Things. It still felt too short and I would have liked to have seen it expanded on a bit. The Great Pan American Airship Mystery was also decent, although not really my thing. As much as I like alternate history, it didn't really seem to have too much actually happening. Acres of Perhaps was a neat concept, although like the title story, I felt like things were h [...]

    9. Sub-par issue. Although I found the premise of the Novella, "Pollen from a Future Harvest" (Derek Künsken) intriguing, the narration did not grab me and it took several sittings to get through, which in turn makes a story less rewarding. The other stories were serviceable but nothing special.
