OUR OCTOBER ISSUE
Our October issue starts with a bang, with a Bob Eggleton cover for Michael F. Flynn’s novella, “Where the Winds Are All Asleep,” a unique and literally deep adventure story. You may think our world has been thoroughly explored, and indeed our knowledge of it has been growing by leaps and bounds. Can it still hold surprises? The answer may be right under your feet, and far bigger (and scarier) than you’d guess.
The rest of our diverse grab bag of fiction comes from both old favorites (like Jerry Oltion and Carl Frederick) and some very promising newcomers. And it includes not only an unusually successful alien-viewpoint story, but at least a couple of nods to different aspects of the season (it being, at least nominally, October).
Finally, our fact article, by psychiatrist Nick Kanas, goes beyond the usual technical problems of exploring the universe to another set that may be even thornier: the psychology of space travel.
