Our July/August double issue takes full advantage of its extra spaciousness to bring you an extra-wide variety of fiction, fact, and special features. Kristine Kathryn Rusch leads off with another novella in her “Retrieval Artist” series, though this one is “off to the side” of what you’ve seen before, focusing not on a Retrieval Artist but on something new and different. Richard A. Lovett appears twice, with a novelette, “Jak and the Beanstalk,” bringing a decidedly novel twist to an idea familiar to SF readers if not the general public; and another article in his popular series about fiction writing, this one dealing with narrative voice. James Gunn, an important force in getting science fiction some respect outside its “ghetto,” has another special feature examining a science-fictional view of our digital future.
We have not one, but two science fact articles: one by C. W. Johnson on the fascinating physics up to string theory (and what may lay beyond), and one by astronomer Kevin Walsh on the unlikely-sounding subject of why Proxima Centauri may not be the nearest star after all.
Plus all our usual columns, still more stories by writers including Kyle Kirkland, Scott William Carter, and Ernest Hogan—and, last but far from least, Part 2 of Edward M. Lerner’s serial Energized.

Congratulations to our Hugo Award nominees

As of 11 AM Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, February 22, Analog will accept--and prefer--submissions in electronic form. Electronic submissions will be accepted through http://analog.magazinesubmissions.com, where full instructions can be found.

Please note that while we welcome electronic submissions, they must be made through the designated website, and not as attachments to regular e-mail.

We look forward to getting the new system rolling, and hope it will make things easier for all of us.

Coordinated Attacks
by Kristine Kathryn Rusch

People have to consider the consequences of their actions—but it’s impossible to consider all of the consequences.

Four Years Ago
Bartholomew Nyquist parked his aircar in one of the hoverlots at the end of the neighborhood. The Dome was dark this morning, even though someone should have started the Dome Daylight program. Maybe they had, deciding that Armstrong was in for a “cloudy” day—terminology he never entirely understood, given that the Moon had no clouds and most people who lived here had been born on the Moon and had never seen a cloud in their entire lives.
He grabbed his laser pistol from the passenger seat, where he always kept it when he was traveling. He tucked the gun into his shoulder holster, hidden under his already rumpled suit coat, and got out of the car.
The neighborhood looked even darker than it should have, sprawled below him like something out of those Christmas Dickens plays his ex-wife loved so much. All it needed was some sooty smoke coming out of chimneys above each house to be authentically dreary.
