The story of a frontiersman and his ward, who must escort a scholarly expedition looking for fossils in hostile territory, may not sound like science fiction, but when you discover just who’s doing the escorting and precisely what they’re looking for, you’re going to change your tune. Find out more in our May/June issue lead story, “Bonehunters,” by Harry Turtledove. Then our fact article comes to us from John Vester: living on one of the least-habitable planets is more possible than you might imagine, as you’ll see in “The Venus Sweet Spot: Floating Home.” We’ll also have: A curious automaton studies whale remains and learns something new “At the Fall” by Alec Nevala-Lee; astronauts must adapt to an alien world that’s unexpectedly close to home in J.T. Sharrah’s “Forgetfulness”; the last hope of a dying species in Dave Creek’s “The Dominant Heart Begins to Race”; a gonzo post-human pursuit (in multiple senses of the word) in “Leave Your Iron at The Door,” by Josh Pearce; an outsider who finds the common thread in different forms of fleeting beauty in “The Methuselah Generation,” by Stanley Schmidt; the profitable search for a historical artifact on the Moon, in “Mulligan” by Bud Sparhawk; a sequel to “Paradise Regained,” in Edward M. Lerner’s “Gates of Paradise”; as well as a plethora of pleasing plots from such fine fabricators of fiction as Bruce McAllister, Phoebe Barton, Joe McDermott, Wendy Nikel, Cynthia Ward, Marissa K. Lingen, Alex Shvartsman, Frank Smith, Liam Hogan, Guy Stewart, Antha Ann Adkins, Mary E. Lowd, Joshua Cole, and David Ebenbach, plus all our regular (and regularly excellent) columns.
