Asimov's January 2007

None of the stories in the January 2007 Asimov's received top grades from me. Most stories were at about the same level (B/B-), except for "Cafe Culture" by Jack Dann, which I found rather unenjoyable (and almost distasteful) no matter how I tried to interpret it.

The two I enjoyed the most were "The Hikikomori's Cartoon Kimono" by A.R. Morlan, for its different subject matter and post-cyberpunk feel, and "Poison" by Bruce McAllister, a story of a witch, a boy and some lizards that doesn't end like you'd expect and had a nice "fairy tale" style.

Forced to choose a favorite from this issue, I would choose "The Hikikomori's Cartoon Kimono".
