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.
Monumental Thinking by Rosemary Claire Smith
A little while ago, I wrote a column presenting the idea of putting a scientist or inventor on U.S. paper currency.1 At a time when there was considerable discussion of replacing President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill with Harriett Tubman, I evaluated several notable Americans potentially suitable for commemoration on U.S. coins or currency, including Albert Einstein, the Wright Brothers, Alexander Graham Bell, George Washington Carver, Thomas Edison, Henrietta Swan Leavitt, and Rachel Carson. Time marches on, bringing with it sharp scrutiny of statues, plaques, and memorials honoring several of our nation’s founders, presidents, statesmen, explorers, and military leaders. As one prominent historical figure after another is deemed by some to have committed reprehensible acts sufficient to disqualify them in the eyes of many, the clamor grows for removing statues and changing the names of public buildings, parks, plazas, boulevards, highways, and the like. My aim now is not to delve into thorny arguments over which historical personages to demote and which public spaces to rename, nor to tackle questions about who should make these decisions and how changes should be carried out. Instead of I’d like to turn Analog’s future-oriented readers’ attention to suitable replacements.
