The stories I loved, yeah, an update.

From Asimov's, December 2007, "The Rules" by Nancy Kress and "Do (This)" by Stephen Graham Jones.

From Interzone, September-October 2007, my last issue, alas, but an interesting issue and a strong issue too, imho, "Feelings of the Flesh" by Douglas Elliot Cohen, "A Handful of Pearls" by Beth Bernobich, "Jihad" by Will McIntosh and "The Algorithm" by Tim Akers.

From Realms of Fantasy, December 2007, "On Tuesday It Rained Horned Toads" by Joe Murphy and "The White Isle" by Von Carr. This issue really excelled in the selections. I also enjoyed stories by Graham Edwards, Richard Parks, Sandra McDonald and David Barr Kirtley.

Kij is an awesome writer and an awesome person.

Her story in CR was one of the most awesome stories I've read this year. I believe it's going to be on a ballet somewhere, not to mention in Best collections.
