This month, we learn that dangerous things can come in very small and numerous packages, in our lead story, “The Season of Ants in a Timeless Land,” by Frank Wu. • Psychic powers have long been a common genre trope, even with a lack of scientific evidence for them . . . but maybe technological telepathy isn’t quite so unlikely. Find out in our featured fact article, “Brain Hacking,” by Richard A. Lovett. • And if uploading our minds to a machine were to turn out to be more complicated than we expect, how would we really know? Lettie Prell’s “Baby Steps” raises the question. • We all understand stories have value, but truly grasping just how much value might be one man’s only chance to save his own life in “The Story of Daro and Arbolita,” by Shane Halbach. • Sometimes you have to risk everything to know if you’re really risking anything, as in Ken Brady’s “Building, Antenna, Span, and Earth.” • It’s easy to say we should think of the greater good, but who gets to decide just what the greater good is? Adam-Troy Castro’s “Evangelist” poses some uncomfortable questions. • Then we see the final days of an alien prison in Timons Esaias’s “Exit Interview,” the conclusion of Stanley Schmidt’s serial, Night Ride and Sunrise, and all our dependably excellent columns.
