Mundanespotting Asimov's April/May 2011

Posted by frankh at 10:48 AM
Here's a double issue of Asimovs, featuring 11 stories.

1) "The Day the Wires Came Down" by Alexander Jablokov -- counterfactual boredom
[10 more to go, but I've abandoned the issue (though I might have finished it, don't remember), sorry]

I'm slightly confused by the format of "Mundanespotting". Are you spotting only mundane stories? Or only nonmundane stories? Or all stories?

I'm trying to spot the mundane sf stories amongst everything else in magazines, and bypass or mock the rest. Look out for the boldface, and one day I will write a mundanespotting manifesto.

Far as I know, scientific realism or naturalism in science fiction is counterfactual. Science fiction involving realistic characters, conflict, and resolution is counterfactual. Is there any? If so, I'd love to hear about it.
