Sara Genge - 'Malick Pan'
I'll admit - when I saw Sara Genge's name on the ToC of Asimov April/May, I had the urge to read it last. To savour what I knew would be complex, interesting, and a good story.

I didn't wait until last, but I did manage to hold off for a few short stories first! 

'Malick Pan' is a futuristic story about children, sex, gender, survival, nanobots... gee, did I miss anything? Subtle, rich and complex, I really enjoyed this story. I think it's not quite as brilliant as 'As Women Fight,' which might just be one of my favourite stories of all time, but this is a very very good read. A very interesting take on nanobots and reinventing an older story.
