Featured Excerpt: The Tower
by Kristine Kathryn Rusch

Kristine Kathryn Rusch's latest novel, Diving Into the Wreck (Pyr), is based on her Asimov’s Readers’-Award-winning novellas: “Diving Into the Wreck” (December 2005) and “The Room of Lost Souls” (April/May 2008). The novel was recently named a Top Pick by the Romantic Times Book Review. The author’s next book, Recovering Apollo 8 and Other Stories, will be out soon from Golden Gryphon. Kris now turns from the deep space of the “Wreck” series and the near space of “Apollo 8” to examine a mystery that is much closer to us in space if not quite in time.

He had gotten a message.

Thomas pretended to contemplate the lights of London reflected on the water. A bit of a wind brushed his cheeks, bringing the slightly bitter scent of the Thames.

Behind him, cars hummed as they glided by. Someone would notice him sooner or later. A man standing on London Bridge at midnight, his arms resting on the edge, looking down at the water, spoke of melancholy at the very least, a potential suicide at the very worst. His hair ruffled as the breeze grew stronger. Then he felt someone at his shoulder and he braced himself so that he couldn’t be tossed over. His heart was pounding.

Paranoia, that’s all it was. He was here to do a job, not to be killed.

Still, he stepped slightly to his left, just enough to take him out of harm’s way.

“Lovely night.” The voice was husky, unfamiliar—and surprisingly—female...

Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine: 30th Anniversary Anthology

"A truly extraordinary sampler of tales.... Every piece in this superlative collection is a nugget of pure science fiction gold."

-Publishers Weekly, starred review

This anniversary anthology presented in chronological order showcases 30 years of excellent stories published in the legendary magazine, Asimov’s Science Fiction. Asimov’s Science Fiction was founded in 1977. As one of science fiction’s most influential and prolific writers, Isaac Asimov wanted to provide a home for new SF writers—a new magazine for young writers could break into. Asimov’s Science Fiction remains that home, as well as the publisher of some of the field’s best known authors.
