Don’t miss the thrilling first portion of Edward M. Lerner’s Dark Secret, in which his protagonists are fighting for the survival of not only themselves, but the entire human race. Also by Lerner is this month’s fact article, which takes a close look at what makes aliens alien in science fiction, and provides fascinating examples of what some leading authors have cooked up.
We also have two new novelettes from regular Analog contributors Carl Frederick and Kyle Kirkland, as well as a few short stories to round the issue out. These include “The Skeptic” by newcomer Jennifer Povey that takes a fresh twist on first contact you’re sure to enjoy.

Jay Lake, the author of Asimov's October/November 2012 cover story, "The Stars Do Not Lie," is suffering from metastatic cancer of the colon, lung, and liver. Although Jay is now undergoing a fourth round of chemotherapy, the outlook does not seem very optimistic. Some of his friends have put together a fundraiser to collect money for a whole genome sequencing for Jay. This new technology offers a slim hope that it will uncover a "treatment path that Jay's doctors may not have considered." At the very least, Jay's sequence may "make a substantive contribution to science and the new field of clinical whole genome sequencing." We've provided a link to the fundraiser for anyone wishing to learn more about it or interested in making a donation. Jay Lake Fundraiser
