"Stone Wall Truth" by Caroline M. Yoachim

Over the last few weeks, I've twice mentioned "Stone Wall Truth" by Caroline M. Yoachim, which was published in the February 2010 edition of Asimov's. The first time was in "Our science fiction isn't your father's SF," where I discussed a review which claimed "the story is a masterpiece, but a masterpiece of fantasy rather than science fiction" (I disagreed and believe the story is a science fiction masterpiece). The other mention was in my "Online SciFi Strange anthology," where I listed the story as a great example of SciFi Strange.

Obviously I love this story. So I'm excited to announce that Yoachim has posted the story online.

This story will definitely be on my short-list for the major awards, and I suggest people read and likewise consider it. The story is as mind-blowing--and disturbing--as science fiction can get.
