When the weather outside is frightful, the perfect thing to do is curl up inside with some science fiction and let it transport you to warm alien lands. Catherine Wells’ “The Builders of Leaf Houses,” our lead story for December, is one such excursion—in this case, to a planet in peril, where the survival of a whole species depends on their ability to find common ground with outsiders. Now that Stanley Schmidt’s Night Ride and Sunrise serial is finished, we can take a look at how it all came together in the first place, in next month’s science-behind-the-story fact article, “The Science of Night Ride.” And of course we have something suitably seasonal from Bud Sparhawk in “Footprints in the Snow,” as well as a look at the long, hard road to reconciliation after war in Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s “The Museum of Modern Warfare”; a tribute to the kind of people who inspire us to reach to the stars in Brendan DuBois’ “The Master’s Voice”; an intelligent and unique look at the complex implications of a common SF trope in Bill Johnson’s “Paris, 1835”; and a bit of high-tech noir from Edward M. Lerner.

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.
