Andrea Cort, Adam-Troy Castro’s prickly but effective troubleshooter, returns to lead off our November issue in “With Unclean Hands,” wherein she faces a particularly thorny interspecies problem for which her own past is uniquely relevant. But being especially well qualified does not mean a person will find a task easy. . . .
Our science fact article comes from Richard B. Robinson, a researcher on the frontiers of a field that was new to me: “Repairing a Broken Heart: Beyond Electronic Pacemakers.” We all know that heart disease is one of our biggest causes of death, and that the electronic pacemaker has been a big help in dealing with it. But those devices, ingenious as they are, carry their own risks and problems. Can we get their advantages without those problems, by using the body’s own capabilities?
And, of course, we have a variety of other short fiction, including a couple of stories that might be construed as seasonal (in quite different ways) by authors including Paul Levinson, Alec Nevala-Lee, Bill Johnson, Don D’Ammassa, and Jack McDevitt.
