Asimov’s Science Fiction: January 2013 Issue – The Family Rocket, James Van Pelt

This was a pretty good story. It’s only Sci-Fi in that it has the word rocket in it and some will certainly feel that it falls on the G-rated, maudlin side of things. But sometimes sentimental can be nice, and I think it works here.

Recommended for….. Pretty much anyone who wants a feel good short story, you might even get a little misty.

Asimov’s Science Fiction: January 2013 Issue – They Shall Salt The Earth With Seeds of Glass, Alaya Dawn Johnson.

I found the story underwhelming mostly due to the lack of closure. It reads like chapter 4 of a much longer book and I was expecting a full story.
