Issue Description:Our May issue kicks off with a cover story from Alec Nevala-Lee: many terrestrial animals have evolved unique forms of camouflage to help them hide, so what happens when a group of researchers discover something far more dangerous than what they were looking for? Find out in “Cryptids.”
Then, following the final installment of Lockstep in this very issue, Karl Schroeder returns for a victory lap with a fact article that looks at the science (and some of the writing decisions) behind his serial in “Lockstep: A Possible Galactic Empire.”
We’ll also have stories such as Dave Creek’s “All Human Things,” where Mike Christopher has cause to regret a daring rescue from the alien Jenregar; “Bodies in Water,” from Sarah Frost, with an unusual girl finding an equally unusual artifact; “Snapshots,” Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s provocative tale of a simple-yet-drastic solution to a deadly problem; “Repo,” Aaron Gallagher’s look at a mundane job turned adventurous when transposed to space; “Another Man’s Treasure,” by Tom Greene, about a family’s desperate attempts to eke out a living in a hostile and unpleasant environment that isn’t far removed from how too many people live today, and more, including all of our top-notch regular features.
