A Clarkesworld review worth sharing

The November issue of Locus Magazine has a very nice Clarkesworld Magazine review by Gardner Dozois:

The stories are usually elegant and well-crafted, many of them quite surreal, sometimes a bit perverse–mostly slipstream and fantasy, some horror, the occasional SF story. My favorites here last year were stories by Caitlin R. Kiernan and Elizabeth Bear. So far, my favorite this year is Jay Lake’s autumnal "The Sky That Wraps the World Round, Past the Blue and into the Black," an actual SF piece, although Jeff Ford’s "After Moreau," a revisionist postmodern take on the Wells’s classic, is quite good too, and there are also good stories here by Tim Pratt, Mary Robinette Kowal, Catherynne M. Valente, Stephen Dedmen, and others. Ironically for an online magazine that has no real physical existence, the covers are quite striking, some of the best I’ve seen in awhile. I particularly like the cover for Issue 19.

This is what the large-size Asimov’s should look like, but probably won’t.
