OUR OCTOBER 2011 ISSUE

We didn’t set out to create a “seasonal” package for our October issue, but we just happened to have a couple of pieces on hand that felt as if they wanted to be there. One of them is our lead novelette, “Of Night,” by newcomer Janet C. Johnston. It looks, at least at first glance, like a ghost story; but the farther into it you get, the more it looks like good, solid, imaginative science fiction. Could it be both? Similarly, Carl Frederick’s “The Lycanthropic Principle” seems to have feet solidly planted in two camps—though, as you’d expect from Carl, it isn’t quite what you might guess.
          Nor did we set out to establish a pattern of authors turning in stories and fact articles that complement each other, but Edward M. Lerner has done it again. We offer the dramatic conclusion of his serial Energized, along with a fact article called “Lost In Space? Follow the Money,” taking a practical look at some of the technological and economic considerations that drive the story—and are very immediately relevant to the world we’re about to live in.
          Rounding out the issue we have stories by Jerry Oltion, a long-time Analog favorite and arguably its most prolific contributor ever, and Brad R. Torgersen, who made a big splash with his very first story.


Congratulations to our Hugo Award nominees

Of Night
by Janet Catherine Johnston

The trouble with exploring the unknown is that it is. . . .

“My name is Frances. May I sit at your campfire? I can tell you a ghost story.”

Low-throated growls from the golden lab preceded her silent emergence from the darkness. The words of the bedraggled, twenty-something, dark-haired woman startled the Jackman family and their friends. The two fathers looked to their wives for approval. Len Jackman said, “Sure, miss. Come have a seat. We’re just telling stories. Want a beer?”
“Or a hot chocolate?” one of the wives added.
“No, thank you.” The waif silently slipped into a seat facing the fire. “You’re very kind.”
“Not at all. We come up to New Hampshire every year on Columbus Day weekend,” Dan, the younger father, said.
Despite the late hour, many campfires could be seen in the distance through the trees throughout the popular campground. But it was very quiet save for the crackling of their campfire.
“How about you?” his wife, Melinda, asked.
“Me?”
“Yes, have you been in Tamworth before?”

“Oh, I used to go camping often with my father, when I was a child.” Frances stared blankly into the fire. A gusty, October-in-New-Hampshire wind rustled the invisible tops of the tall pines. Although the fire...
