Next issue, we kick off the summer with a blockbuster techno-thriller from Howard V. Hendrix: One enterprising FBI agent discovers that the Singularity may not only work in one direction, but will that information cost her life? Find out in “The Girl With Kaleidoscope Eyes.”
Then our fact article comes from Michael Carroll: in our search for alien intelligence, it’s entirely possible (if not likely) that the only civilizations we’ll find will be long dead ones. If that’s the case, then we may need a specialized field to study them; perhaps something like “Alien Archeology.”
And the short fiction is as varied and unexpected as always: a very real disease begins cropping up in troubling ways, in Stanley Schmidt’s “The Final Nail”; harsh environments sometimes make for harsh interpersonal relationships, but will we carry our old prejudices with us? “Kepler’s Law” from Jay Werkheiser suggests one scenario. Then the famous parable turns out to be both figuratively and literally true, in Julie Novakova’s “To See the Elephant.”
We round out the issue with a host of shorter pieces, from authors such as Sam Schreiber, Dave Creek, Eric Choi, Bill Pronzini & Barry Malzberg, Igor Teper, Andrew Barton, Bond Elam, Lavie Tidhar, Joe Pitkin, Ken Brady, Gord Sellar, Manny Frishberg & Edd Vick, Dominica Phetteplace, Marissa Lingen, and Bud Sparhawk, as well as all our regular and rock solid columns.
