I've read three stories in the past week:
"The Red Queen's Race" by Isaac Asimov.
"Rammer' by Larry Niven.
"Burning Day" by Glenn Grant.
Which were published in 1948, 1971, and 2004, respectively.
I read "Red Queen" and "Burning Day" both while babysitting a computer that was being fixed. I read "Rammer" while waiting out a school board executive session.
I'd never read "Red Queen" before. It's in an anthology I bought a couple of weeks ago, "The Future I", edited by Asimov.
"Burning Day" is in the current Year's Best (Hartwell version) It's not in the Dozois flavor.
"Rammer' is in a Niven collection, "Playgrounds of the Mind".
"Red Queen" - Typically Asimovian brilliance; I've always like the guy. Probably seemed more original when it was published.
"Burning" - Hmmm. Very well written. I never thought I'd see cyberpunk sound so old-fashioned.
"Rammer" - Good bridge between the New Wave and the Cyberpunks. Again, well written. I start to lose sympathy for the characters, though, when they get too far out - both in time and space.
