I hadn’t realized the Feb 2013 Asimov’s is available already! So, you can read the entire novella if you like.
“The Weight of the Sunrise” is an alternate history in which the Incan Empire survives into the 19th century, and they bargain with the Americans for their future.
You can get the Asimov’s issue a few ways:
1) Go to a Barnes & Noble and pick it up. Make sure you get the Feb 2013
issue (with my name on the cover! Cover is black with an orange planet.) Or your local science fiction bookstore of course–if you’re able to do this, it’s a fabulous choice for supporting local business.
2) Get it for Kindle:
Have a great holiday, everyone!
