    Top of the Line

    Superlatives are hard to apply in a market as fractured as science fiction. Is "Hard" SF better than "Soft"? What about "Space Opera"? And what importance is placed on exacting scientific accuracy? Therefore, it's impossible to pin down a single magazine as the "best" in the field.

Some really do take you to alien places or senses with their language and structure as well as plot (I'm thinking of some of Charles Stross' new entries).

    Asimov's is less predictable than Analog as well; other than editor Robert Silverberg's editorial, there are...
