Welcome to Analog 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.
