OUR APRIL 2012 ISSUE

In recent years there has been much talk and concern about invasive species—and countertalk about whether “invasive” species are necessarily bad. Susan Forest leads off our April issue with a thought-provoking novelette about “The Most Invasive Species” and the elusive relationship between quality of intentions and quality of results. Craig DeLancey also has a novelette, “Ecce Signum,” which is the latest (and last?) in his series about “Marrion’s Children,” bred and raised for a unique and very special quality—with, of course, the best of intentions.

          Richard A. Lovett offers a fact article which is far out in the most literal way: It’s about Pluto, recently demoted from official “planet” status, other Pluto-like objects, and all the other stuff making up the Kuiper Belt, way out on the fringes of the Solar System—but offering new insights into the origins of the part we live in.

          We also have stories by Kevin J. Anderson, Stephen L. Burns, and Jerry Oltion, plus Part III of Robert J. Sawyer’s novel Triggers.


Congratulations to our Hugo Award nominees

The Most Invasive Species
by Susan Forest

Doing the right thing is commendable, but first you have to understand what that means. . . .

I picked up Doc’s replacement in my safari rover, at the bungalow where Lloyd put her, just off the road to Eddy’s orchard. I’d come to drive her out to the nomads’ place. It was a Saturday, hot and  sunny, about a week after the transport landed, and I was thinking how good it’d be to have another professional woman besides Jessica and me in the colony. Half-unpacked boxes were still stacked on her....
