Just finished reading the july issue of F&SF; in that one, Gordon is a bit cheeky.
In the blurb at the beginning of Cowdrey's POISON VICTORY (btw, a very good AH story), he writes:
"Science Fiction and Fantasy readers are sometimes accused of being a bit provincial, but our editors are so cosmopolitan and wide-ranging that we even read the message boards of other magazines. It's true! Recently we spotted an interesting discussion at www.asimovs.com on the subject of alternate history stories, specifically about what distinguishes good ones from bad. Here we offer up a fine - if grim - example of the form, a tale that looks back at the Second World War with a keen and unflinching eye."
Provincial readers? Wide-ranging editors?
Cheeky, I say!
Keep up the good work, Gordon!
(just began reading THE POLITICAL PRISONER which got much praise on Asimov's forum)

Is this the place to offer congrats to Gordon for his Hugo victory?
Congrats to Gordon, and Ted Chiang too.

Maybe it's my imagination, but the Oct/Nov blurbs seemed a little bit . . . friskier than usual.

The doctor upped the doses on my meds.
