Our December issue opens with “The Anomaly,” by C.W. Johnson, where the realities of survival in the crowded cities of a future Earth lead to drastic measures aboard an orbital manufacturing plant. Then our fact article is a rarity—a first-hand account of the research and ongoing development of “S.P.E.A.R.E.D., the Single- Person Emergency Atmospheric ReEntry Device,” by Tom Ligon, Stephanie Osborn, and Arlan Andrews. We’ll also have lots more fiction, like “Humans First,” a story of human/AI conflict by Kyle Kirkland; “Saboteur,” a tale of payback by Ken Liu; “Mammals,” in which the Singularity finds a fly in its ointment, from David D. Levine; “Dino-Mate,” Rosemary Claire Smith’s sequel to her 2013 “Not With a Bang”; one woman’s quest to save her neighborhood from rising water lines in Craig DeLancey’s “Racing the Tide”; and a look at the implications of tabloid conspiracy theories in Paul Carlson’s Probability Zero, “All Too Human,” as well as pieces by newcomers, like Miki Dare’s “Twist of Coil,” and “Citizen of the Galaxy,” by Evan Dicken, and of course, all our regular, top-notch 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.
