June 2003

Our cover novelette for June is one of the late Lloyd Biggle, Jr’s last tales of the Interplanetary Relations Bureau: "Of the Zornler, By the Zornler." It seems self-evident to many humans (and perhaps to other sentient beings as well) that their way of life is the best for everybody. It seems almost as evident to some, who’ve thought about it a little more, that that may not be true, and they should be cautious about imposing their preferences on somebody else. But does either group really know–if they haven’t tried the experiment?

Kyle Kirkland’s fact article offers a preview of an intriguing new development in pharmacology: "Personalized Drugs: The Future of Pharmacogenomics." Any MD knows that not all patients respond equally well to a drug, and some individuals may even be killed by a prescription that saves someone else’s life. So why not tailor drugs specifically for the patients who will use them? Recent advances in decoding the human genome may make it practical.

We also have the usual variety of other fiction, including new stories by such favorite writers as Ben Bova and Michael F. Flynn.
