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 Issue's Editorial

Colliding Icebergs by Richard A. Lovett

Several years ago, I had the honor of being invited to spend a few days as a civilian guest in what for the army officers involved was a two-year program at the U.S. Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. I found myself as the sole civilian in one of several dozen seminar groups, each composed of eighteen senior colonels (on the cusp of promotion to general), one instructor, and a civilian. Me, in this case. Two or three times a day, we attended high-powered lectures, then retired to our seminar groups to discuss them.

I went expecting to learn about the military, which I did. I learned that these officers were incredibly bright, intellectually diverse, and very open-minded. I encountered the army shout of “hooah,” which I heard in enough different contexts that I’m still not sure what it means.
