From The Editor


Welcome to Analog Science Fiction and Fact!

A lifelong appreciation of science fiction has led me to an incredibly fulfilling career with Analog, and I'm proud to carry on the magazine's long-standing tradition of publishing the world's finest science fiction and fact.

During my tenure at Analog, I've had the profound privilege of working with hundreds of authors, editors, TV producers, and many other notables in the science fiction field. As the editor of the longest-running SF publication in history, my personal mandate is to continue to provide the top-quality, ground-breaking hard science fiction that has characterized Analog since its launch. Welcome!

About the Editor

Trevor Quachri has been the Editor of the Hugo Award winning magazine, Analog Science Fiction and Fact, since 2012.

Prior to taking over the reins at Analog, Trevor's editorial skills were honed working with Stanley Schmidt (Analog Editor 1978-2012), Sheila Williams (Asimov's Science Fiction Editor 2004-present), and Gardner Dozois (Asimov's Editor 1986-2004). He brings to Analog a unique and reverent perspective on SF. In addition to his lifelong love of science fiction, Trevor draws upon his diverse past experiences – on Broadway, on special museum projects involving rigorous scientific data analysis, on collaboratively producing a pilot for a SF-based television show – to continue Analog's storied tradition of ground-breaking hard science fiction.

This Month's Guest Editorial

Mars Needs Children by Rosemary Claire Smith

Calling all parents: Has it occurred to you that you might be raising a Martian? I mean this in a good way. Perhaps I’d better explain.

Doubtless, you’ve come to appreciate that child rearing presents many challenges. We do what we can to help our offspring become physically healthy, intelligent, mentally stable, adaptable, creative, resilient, curious, kind, and well-educated adults. When the conversation turns to what they want to be when they grow up, some of the sons and daughters and grandchildren of Analog readers will exclaim, “astronaut!” Indeed it is entirely possible that one of our own progeny will venture forth as one of humanity’s greatest explorers, traveling for six to eight months through deep space to reach Mars.
