Asimov's 152 - Gardner Dozois

Not much else of interest in this mag, apart from the stories - book mentions include Sterling's Crystal Express. Also a short 'neat article' stuff where Orson Scott Card thinks Clive Barker was a dead end. Pretty amusing, having just read 'The New Weird' anthology.

A pretty ordinary issue overall, saved a bit by Egan, and a rather creepy drawing for that story, too.
