March/April 2019 is a special tribute issue to long-time Asimov’s editor Gardner Dozois. Gardner, who won fifteen Hugos for best editor during his time at the magazine, is remembered by thirteen distinguished authors in a heartfelt “In Memoriam.” We’re also reprinting “The Peacemaker” from our August 1983 issue. With a melting Antarctic, coastal inundations, and drowning lowlands, this poignant tale may be even more relevant today than it was when it won the Nebula thirty-five years ago.
ALSO IN MARCH/APRIL
March/April contains a thrilling mix of stories by authors long associated with Gardner as well as tales by exciting newcomers. Jack Dann touches on what happens when “Mr. Death Goes to the Beach”; Michael Swanwick treats us to “Eighteen Songs by Debussy”; Eileen Gunn investigates “Terrible Trudy on the Lam”; Kristine Kathryn Rusch unravels the mystery of an eerie “Transport.” Lawrence Watt-Evans returns to his famous diner to show us “How I Found Harry’s All-Night Hamburgers”; Allen M. Steele reveals the secret of “The Lost Testament”; Alex Irvine tells the brutal tale of “Isla Tiburon”; Greg Egan’s comp minds look for freedom through “Instantiation”; and Tom Purdom takes us on a “January March.” We have three tales by first-time Asimov’s authors. Zhao Haihong gifts us with “The Starry Sky Over the Southern Isle”; Rammel Chan introduces us to some questionable “Tourists”; and Kofi Nyameye forces us to face the unthinkable when “The Lights Go Out, One By One.”
