OUR June 2012 ISSUE

Paul Carlson has been attracting a good deal of attention here with his series of stories about robot truck drivers in the not too distant future, drawing extensively on his own experience (more with trucks than robots, I suspect) to create a really authentic feel of the road—and human reactions to a changing world. Robots are tools, but very special tools; and humans are notoriously good at turning even the finest tools to nefarious ends. Hence the “Crooks” in Carlson’s novelette leading off our June issue.

Carl Frederick also has a novelette, “Food Chained,” wherein a man of firm principle finds himself stuck in a fascinatingly (and dangerously) alien ecosystem where he has to rethink his position. Are principles really as universal as some would like them to be? That may depend on the principle. . . .

We’ll also have stories by Sarah Castle, Alec Nevala-Lee, Catherine Shaffer, and a couple of promising newcomers. And, last but by no means least, a science fact article by John Gribbin, too long absent from these pages, with the tantalizing title “Is the Moon a Babel Fish”? Luna is a strange piece of real estate in a lot of ways, and the mystery of its origins may be far from closed.


Congratulations to our Hugo Award nominees

Crooks
by Paul Carlson

The trouble with tools is that anybody can use them. But when the tool is more than a tool. . . .

Gorgeous scenery all around. Tall conifers, bright green in springtime, with pure white snow in between. What a contrast from my usual routes, across crowded cities and arid desert. Luckily Mek was along to help me drive, because the change from traffic jams really got distracting.
For the moment, I sat behind the wheel, because our load was heavier than most and the downgrade ahead steep.
