Analog, December 2008

David Bartell. Misquoting the Star. A followup to ‘Misquoting the Moon’ (March 2007) in which one Hendrik Isaacs got a coveted place on a shuttle to the moon colony, thus being one of the select few to avoid the planet-killer asteroid imminently due to impact on Earth. The main protagonist in this story is the […]

Analog, July/August 2007

Michael F. Flynn. Quaestiones Super Caelo Et Mundo. A lengthy offering from Flynn, providing a fictional angle on scientific enlightenment in medieval times – historical fiction about science, as opposed to science fiction. The story is followed up by a Science Fact piece which delves into the same territory. Richard A. Lovett. The Last of […]

Analog Science Fiction and Science Fact, July/August 2006

Reviewed : MobiPocket version on a Tapwave Zodiac. Alexis Glynn Latner. Witherspin. A somewhat contrived adventure in which an enhanced male, with a criminal record, and his female companion have to escape the clutches of various cod-fantasy types after them (trolls, crusaders, sabre toothed tigers), in an orbiting habitat which features several different climatic zones.

Analog Science Fiction and Science Fact, July/August 2005

Bud Sparhawk. Chandra’s Pup. I got a few pages into this story, and then did a check on previous stories I had read by Sparhawk. Some had impressed me, but I found that I had said of the predecessor story to this one, ‘Clay’s Pride’ (Analog Jul/Aug 2004), again, after managing only a few pages […]

Analog Science Fiction and Science Fact, May 2005

Shane Tourtellotte. Footsteps. A lunar variation on the Locked Room Murder Mystery – except that the dead body is on the moon’s surface, quite some distance from the nearest building – the body is not wearing a spacesuit, and there are only his footsteps in the regolith. So how did he get there? Grey Rollins. […]

Analog Science Fiction and Science Fact, December 2004

Kenneth Brady. Baby on Board. Editor Standey Schmidt has been beefing about SUVs in his editorials of late, so it was probably a heads-up play by Brady in submitting a story about them. Alan, an eco-warrior, objecting to the use of these gasguzzlers, takes pride in stealing, or rather, borrowing such vehicles, and giving them […]
