2015 is off to a good start with a strong January/February double issue. We kick things off with J.T. Sharrah’s “Malnutrition,” in which a scoundrel had better help a lot of people—human and otherwise—get over their squeamishness if he wants to avoid being caught in the middle of a diplomatic incident. Then our fact article is by none other than Stanley Schmidt, where he wonders aloud how, if we find ourselves capable of adjusting the natural orbit of satellites, just how exactly it might work, in “Orbits to Order.” We close out the issue with the conclusion to Richard A. Lovett’s Floyd and Brittney series, “Defender of Worms.” Brittney’s on the run and Floyd is as far away—literally and figuratively—as can be. Does this one have a happy ending? In between, we also have shorter pieces like Jay Werkheiser’s “Usher,” where one man’s missing senses might help him make “sense” of alien communication; “Fool’s Errand,” by Judith Tarr, in which a ship’s medical officer is challenged by an unusual passenger; “Why The Titanic Hit the Iceberg,” by Jerry Oltion, in which we’re reminded that running away doesn’t solve our problems, and more, by such authors as Henry Lien, David L. Clements, Arlan Andrews, Sr., Marianne J. Dyson, and Ron Collins, as well as half a dozen more stories from various newcomers, and all our reliably excellent 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.
