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.
The May/June issue brings The Quantum Magician from Derek Künsken to a close. The heist of the millenium has only just begun, but the wheels have already started to come off: betrayed and hunted, things are about to become very dangerous for Bel and his crew. But is everything what it seems? When a hidden vault filled with inexplicable artifacts is discovered in the Network, David, Nashira, and Rynyan must race a band of treasure hunters to claim its contents in our lead story, “Hubpoint of No Return,” from Christopher L. Bennett. Time marches on, and we either find ways to march along or be trampled over, and perhaps not all of us are well-suited to both options, as we see in Wil McCarthy’s “The Last Biker Gang.” Our fact article is on “Seeing Alien Tech,” from James and Dominic Benford, and then we turn our sensors inward, in “Monitoring Diseases From Space,” a guest Alternate View from Richard A. Lovett (in addition to our regular column from John Cramer). We’ll also have an array of great stories from Sam J. Miller, Chuck Dixon, Ian Creasey, Alison Wilgus, Tim McDaniel, Marissa Lingen, William Ledbetter, Kate MacLeod, Robert Reed, Marie Vibbert, Evan Dicken, Stephen L. Burns, as well as all of our regular columns and departments.
