When political tensions aboard an astronomical exploratory vessel run high, it’s a tense situation. But when that same vessel discovers a mysterious alien artifact and it’s revealed that not everyone on board is who they say they are, it becomes a powder keg. Find out what happens next, in our July/August lead story, “Vault,” from Robert R. Chase. Our fact article for the issue is a bit different: a little like a traditional fact piece and a little bit of an essay, C. Stuart Hardwick brings us “Do We Still Need NASA? The Agency and Its Future in the Era of Commercial Space.” Then we have a cosmic mystery on the largest possible scale in “The Slipway,” by Greg Egan, and you’ll also find a truckload of tricky time travel tales, such as “Monarch of the Feast,” by Paul Di Filippo; “All Tomorrow’s Parties” by Phoebe North; “The Babbage Tour,” by Leo Vladimirsky; and “A Wonderful Thing to Say” by Dan Reade, as well as a tale of Augmented Reality gone horribly wrong in Nick Wolven’s “The Eyes of Alton Arnhauser”; a science-fictional take on a fairy-tale in Freya Marske’s “What We Named the Needle”; and a crime with an impossible murder weapon in Tom Jolly’s “Shooting Stars,” plus stories from Catherine Wells, Robert Scherrer, Joe M. McDermott, Julie Novakova, Alison Wilgus, Eric James Stone, Steve Rasnic Tem, John Vester, Buzz Dixon, David L. Clements, and Leah Cypess, as well as all our regular ongoing (and outstanding) columns.

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.
