An unexpected pleasure

(Updated March 26, 2016)

Analog's recent review of InterstellarNet Enigma (see Grinning from ear to ear) was, of course, delightfully welcome -- but it didn't come as a total surprise. That is: my SF at every length appears regularly in Analog. The Reference Library there often recommends books similar to the stories that brings people to the zine.

But it's been years since my last appearance in Asimov's Science Fiction.

Until, that is, Asimov's current (February 2016 issue). This morning I came upon, in the current issue's On Books feature, a long and thoughtful review of InterstellarNet: Enigma. That review concludes: "Here’s an author you definitely need to check out. Good fun for fans of hard SF."

(Alas, Asimov's posts only their most recent book-review column. My book's review is no longer available.) 

Should F&SF (in which my writing has yet to appear) make it a trifecta, I'll fall out of my chair. Beaming.
