Normally, November isn’t thought of as much of a time for seasonally-appropriate fiction, but since this issue hits stands closer to Halloween than any other, it seems like it would be a shame let the opportunity pass without at least one story that’s as much trick as it is treat.
Our lead, “Bugs,” by Ron Collins, is a lesson in the potential repercussions of a new and unproven technology, but might there be a way to turn it to our advantage . . . ?
Then Tom Easton provides our fact article, on a particularly timely topic (and a follow-up to a popular piece of his from a few years back): “3D Printing and Dancing Bears.”
We finish off this issue with “The Matthews Conundrum,” a standalone story set in Edward M. Lerner’s InterstellarNet universe that explores one of its darker corners.
We also have short pieces by Jack McDevitt and Bud Sparhawk, the latest Hub story from Christopher L. Benett, the Analog debut of Paul Di Filippo (with something of a . . . Biopunk Western?) as well as stories from a pair of promising newcomers and columns from our usual rogue’s gallery of columnists.
