List below is by my preference - best first; unread stories come at end. My rating (ABC: A = time well spent; C = don't bother) is in brackets. Unless mentioned otherwise, stories are from US edition of the magazine.
- January: Thom Jones' "Bomb Shelter Noel" (B); non-genre: A girl, a serious "type I diabetic", hosts a radio show about survival.
May be we need to read irony here - someone chronically sick showing a public face of someone very fit? I'm not sure. But in spite of being a story about someone very sick, it makes a light read.
- February: Walter Mosley's "Untitled Crime Story" (B); non-genre: Three black men commit a $3m heist in New York city. Gang leader is seen by a witness; is hence killed by the other two. One of the other two is killed by cops after laying a trap. Now the sole survivor is living an anonymous life in fear ... when will he get a bullet?
Story seems to emphasize that the three criminals are black. May be US readers will read more into its social background tidbits.
