Cat Pictures Please by Naomi Kritzer published in Clarkesworld Magazine ISSUE 100, January 2015
This was a fun little story that danced through the idea of AI already existing and quietly trying to improve the lives of people through ads and electronically manufactured coincidences. The main character has a childlike approach to meddling and is rather adorable. I’m not sure if it is groundbreakingly Hugo Award worthy but it is a fun read and I recommend giving it a try.

I just finished reading The Ways of Walls and Words by Sabrina Vourvoulias. This was a beautiful lyrical story with subtly of magic interwoven through poetry and friendship. I enjoyed the truth of two different world views, the dance of perspective. Definitely a story I would recommend reading.
