Asimov's 386 - Sheila Williams

Here we have a Mundane SF discussion by Kelly. Silverberg talks about acquiring or removing space junk, both terrestrially and extra. The books stuff tells us that Stross' flaming Merchant Princes appear to be having trading hours extended yet again.

Anyway, this issue is also a 3.50 on the clacker. A wide range of scores here, and even a standout, with Bear's excellently named as well as executed 'Shoggoths In Bloom'.
