Interesting comments on "Neptune's Treasure," Lois.

FYI, I was a travel writer (among many other things) before starting to sell fiction. I often draw on that.

I liked your summary of the characters, too. You've inspired me to get cracking on part IV, which stalled when I started needing to pay the rent with nonfiction writing.

Hi, Lois.

It's refreshing when we agree, stimulating when we don't -- this time I find myself largely in agreement: about the Stratmann stories, the Tem story, the Ziljak story, Rusch's piece ...

My reading of Shoulders's piece ("Conditional Love") is that Grace made a horribly wrong decision, by the way.

And the Flynn story is a sequel to his (pretty good) novel THE JANUARY DANCER. I suspect another novel is forthcoming -- whether this story is part of it or not I don't know.

That is also my own reading of the Shoulders piece, but I am not entirely convinced that the author didn't intend it to be ambiguous.

I'll have my Years Best list in the January issue.

btw - I see that the Asimov's online forum has a discussion of this story.
