David Bartell leads off our March issue with “Cavernauts,” a tense tale of a rescue mission against long odds in a locale much farther out than the ones Bartell has frequented so far. Actually it’s a deft interweaving of outer and inner space, in more than one sense: the twisted caves of Callisto, and a much-evolved descendant of the internet that has changed people’s attitudes toward themselves and the universe in unexpected ways. But two things that have stayed the same are that outcomes can’t be foreseen, and reasons and motives are not always the same thing. . . .

Henry Honken’s fact article, “From Token to Script: The Origin of Cuneiform,” might be considered “linguistic paleontology”: a recent attempt to piece together from early artifacts the actual process by which one of our species’ first writing systems came into being. We also have stories by Richard Foss, Carl Frederick, and Jerry Craven; an unusual father-son collaboration by H. G. Stratmann and Henry Stratmann III; and the expansive conclusion of Robert J. Sawyer’s novel Wake.
