And this latest anthology carries on in that tradition, representing some of Analog's best stories of the new millenium. There's a little something for everyone here:
* "Outbound" by Brad Torgersen starts with the end of civilization. Then it goes on a roller-coaster ride from there as a lone survivor, a young boy, tries to survive and find hope.
* "The Universe Beneath Our Feet" by Carl Frederick shows us life in a very alien society, a race of intelligent crabs that live under an ice layer; and it shows the challenges they face when one of them dares to question common wisdom.
* "Quastiones Super Caelo Et Mundo" by Michael F. Flynn is an alternate history, but not a military story (as so many alt-histories seem to be). Rather, it's an alternate science history, exploring what would change if one small bit of knowledge had not been lost in ancient history.
* "The Purloined Labradoodle" by Barry B. Longyear is... just... weird. And I say this as someone who has been reading Longyear since his first stories back in the 70s. The man is one of my writing inspirations; but this story reads like nothing else of his I've ever read. It's loopy and silly and a whole lotta fun. In a world where personality is easily recorded and transferred to humans, animals, and artificial life forms, nothing and no one is what they/it seem.Read more ›
