Our September 2012 issue
Our September issue offers a wide variety of stories in all shapes, sizes, and flavors. The biggest is Brad Aiken’s novella “Done That, Haven’t Been There,” about a physician forced by circumstance to try to solve a murder from a quarter of a million miles away. But then, maybe he should have thought of that possibility when he decided to operate on a patient at that distance. . .
Among our other stories, Alec Nevala-Lee’s “The Voices” is psychological fiction in the most literal, yet engaging, sense. Susan Forest’s “Rent In Space” has little to do with landlords or bill collecting, but a lot to do with a most peculiar and unexpected bit of living room furniture. Michael F. Flynn’s “Elmira, 1895” may or may not be alternate history, but it does involve a couple of people you know well, even though they lived and died before your time. “Mythunderstanding” is the latest entry in Carl Frederick’s popular (and arguably silly) “misunderstanding” series, while Jerry Oltion’s “The Long View” gives new meaning to its title.
And Arlan Andrews’s fact article “SIGMA: Summing Up Understanding” describes a real-world application of what you’re holding in your hands. Many of you have probably thought that science fiction writers could do a better job than governments anticipating what problems we might really face in the future and how we might deal with them. Well, in recent years a group of them, corralled and led by Andrews, have been doing just that . . .
