So how do we top an issue like this one? Well, a two-fer is a good start. In next month’s July/August double, we kick off with the first installment of a serial—and not just any serial. New planets bring new opportunities, but when unexpected complications arise, how do we keep from making the same old mistakes all over again? Find out in Stanley Schmidt’s Night Ride and Sunrise. Then we have a pair of fact articles: Edward M. Lerner’s next entry in his ongoing series, “Alien Altercations: Star (Spanning) Wars,” as well as a smaller, “crunchier” piece from Robert Zubrin, “Moving the Earth.” Of course, a plethora of further fine fiction awaits, from Liz J. Andersen’s flea-bitten “The Smell of Blood and Thunder,” to Ian Watson’s slyly shifting quantum entanglement, “Breakfast in Bed”; from Rob Chilson’s Vancian “The Tarn,” to Adam-Troy Castro’s tense thriller, “Sleeping Dogs,” and plenty more in between, as well as a special feature on plotting by Richard A. Lovett, all our regular columns, and the results of our annual Analytical Laboratory Reader’s Awards.
