Issue Description
2015 is off to a good start with a strong January/February double issue. We kick things off with J.T. Sharrah’s “Malnutrition,” in which a scoundrel had better help a lot of people—human and
otherwise—get over their squeamishness if he wants to avoid being caught in the middle of a diplomatic incident.

Then our fact article is by none other than Stanley Schmidt, where he wonders aloud how, if we find ourselves capable of adjusting the natural orbit of satellites, just how exactly it might work, in “Orbits to Order.”

We close out the issue with the conclusion to Richard A. Lovett’s Floyd and Brittney series, “Defender of Worms.” Brittney’s on the run and Floyd is as far away—literally and figuratively—as can be. Does this one have a happy ending?

In between, we also have shorter pieces like Jay Werkheiser’s “Usher,” where one man’s missing senses might help him make “sense” of alien communication; “Fool’s Errand,” by Judith Tarr, in which a ship’s medical officer is challenged by an unusual passenger; “Why The Titanic Hit the Iceberg,” by Jerry Oltion, in which we’re reminded that running away doesn’t solve our problems, and more, by such authors as Henry Lien, David L. Clements, Arlan Andrews, Sr., Marianne J.
Dyson, and Ron Collins, as well as half a dozen more stories from various newcomers, and all our reliably excellent columns.
