Add To Cart

Published since 1930, Analog Science Fiction and Fact is one of the most enduring and popular science fiction magazines of all time. Starting with its January/February 2017 issue, Analog Science Fiction and Fact updated its annual subscription format to feature a total of 6 issues per year, all of them 208-page double issues. The new format allows for expanded articles and more special features, as well as greater editorial flexibility overall, and comes with no increase in the annual subscription price! Analog’s editorial emphasis continues to be on realistic stories that reflect high standards of scientific accuracy and imagination, and on lively articles about current research at the frontiers of real science. A recurrent theme in both fiction and provocative opinion columns is the human impact of science and technology. Home to many bestselling authors, including Robert J. Sawyer, Michael F. Flynn, Stephen Baxter, Catherine Asaro, Harry Turtledove, Joe Haldeman, and Ben Bova, Analog has won numerous Nebula, Hugo, and other awards cementing its position as a leading SF periodical. Analog Science Fiction and Fact features 6 double issues each year.

We open November/December with “Empress of Starlight” by G. David Nordley. When stars begin “disappearing,” a crew takes the long trip out to the Dyson sphere they suspect is causing it, but what they find is even bigger and more astounding than they imagined. Our fact article then tackles the remote but very real possibility of a cataclysmic terrestrial asteroid impact, and what can be done to prevent it, in “Defending the Earth,” from Marianne J. Dyson. And of course we have a wide array of other stories, including an epic space opera with a very big idea, from Christopher McKitterick, “Ashes of Exploding Suns, Monuments to Dust”; a look at how daunting a seemingly-simple skill can be to learn for the inexperienced, from Joyce and Stanley Schmidt, in “Mixipoxi Learns to Drive”; a most unusual reality show contestant in “Pandora’s Pantry,” from Stephen L. Burns; “Hubstitute Creatures,” a new Hub story from Christopher L. Bennett; and plenty more, from Jerry Oltion, Rich Larson, Marissa Lingen, Cynthia Ward, Tom Jolly, C. Stuart Hardwick, and others, plus all of our regular outstanding columns and features.
