Analog Science Fiction and Fact (to give the magazine its full title) is the place to go if you’re looking for traditional SF adventure, and stories with a focus on science and scientists. I reviewed their stories between 2000 and 2009, but since then have been only reading the odd story, finding most of their stories more ‘scientist fiction’ – written by scientists about scientists, for scientists, with the writing itself relatively unsophisticated. Analog rarely (with just the odd exception) features in the various Year’s Best anthologies, or the Hugo/Nebula Awards.
