Asimov's 332 - Gardner Dozois

Another really good issue, here, with just the one ordinary story, and even that was one and could have been a bit over 3. So, 3.67 average and actually a fairly light tone in general for a fair bit of this. This is led by Nestvold.

Kelly looks at the robots coming to get you on the net, and a bunch of reviews, include a many decades later novel set in the Swordspoint world that I didn't know about.
