Our October 2012 issue
Our October issue features a special cover by Michael Whelan for “The Liars,” the latest of Juliette Wade’s explorations of truly alien cultures. By now you’ve probably noticed that she has an exceptional knack for getting inside such cultures and drawing you into them too. This story is no exception, and these particular aliens also inhabit an uncommonly colorful world. And, incomprehensible though their ways may at first seem to an outsider, you’ll soon find that they do make a disquieting sort of sense, once you understand their premises and the dilemmas they consequently face. . . .
Our fact article is by a newcomer to our pages, Alan Plummer, and deals with the important contributions to professional science made by amateur observers, particularly in certain areas of astronomy and astrophysics. Rounding out the issue will be a decidedly diverse collection of stories by such writers as Michael F. Flynn, Carl Frederick, Linda Nagata, Larry Niven, and a couple of promising new talents.
