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.
ALSO IN MAY/JUNE
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!
