Analog Science Fiction and Fact - October 2014
Published since 1930, Analog Science Fiction and Fact is one of the most enduring and popular magazines of science fiction. Its editorial emphasis is on realistic stories that reflect high standards of scientific accuracy and imagination with lively articles about current research on the frontiers of real science. A recurrent theme in both fiction and provocative opinion columns is the human impact of science and technology. Analog has won numerous Nebula, Hugo, and other awards acknowledging it as a leading periodical in the field. Analog is home to many bestselling authors, including Robert J. Sawyer, Michael F. Flynn, Stephen Baxter, Catherine Asaro, and Harry Turtledove, Joe Haldeman and Ben Bova. Analog Science Fiction and Fact features 12 issues (8 single issues and 2 double issues).
We’re not ones to miss an opportunity for some seasonal stories, so our October issue has a host of fitting fiction, both light-hearted and more sinister. First up, we’re proud to present something that hasn’t graced the pages of Analog for far too long: new fiction by Joyce and Stanley Schmidt. Not everybody really “gets” Halloween, but when “Opportunity Knocks,” you just have to answer. Then an installment of Edward M. Lerner’s popular “science behind the stories” series serves as our fact article, this time about one of the Big Questions of SF: “Alien AWOLs: The Great Silence.” We’ll also have a particularly white-knuckle Mike Christopher story from Dave Creek, “The Jenregar and the Light.” And there’s a bunch more great content where that came from, like David Brin’s unsettling piece of biological SF, “Chrysalis”; Tony Ballantyne’s story of limits reached, “Threshold”; an unusual adventure from Andrew Barton in “Each Night I Dream of Liberty”; a close look at the ways biology and society intertwine in Mary E. Lowd’s “The Hand-Havers”; and the Nietzche quote about gazing into the abyss exemplified in Ron Collins’ “Unfolding the Multi-Cloud.” As well as, of course, all our usual top-notch columns.
