    8 • The Gorilla in a Tutu Principle or, Pecan Pie at Minnie and Earl's • 28 pages by Adam-Troy Castro VG/Good. While fixing a damaged camera Ben Turbin spots a fat man and skinny man carrying a big crate up a steep hill for no good reason. Of course there is no proof, but he knows what he saw. When it happens a second time he has his camera with him, but again gets nothing. It seemed to me these characters were doing some slapstick. Then I got that it was a particular set of characters.

When it happens a second time he has his camera with him, but again gets nothing. It seemed to me these characters were doing some slapstick. Then I got that it was a particular set of characters. Ben finally went to Minnie and Earl's to see if they had answers. Minnie told Ben that they were probably just big fans of the fat and skinny man. 44 • Awakening in the Anteroom of Heaven • 11 pages by Brenda Kalt Good. The Tir have been defeated by humans. Agm works with the friendship committee to rescue some statues from a destroyed city. 55 • On Her Shoulders • 11 pages by Martin L. Shoemaker Very Good+. As a grad student Kris discovers something in space radiating at room temperature. She and her advisor find that it's near the orbit of Jupiter. His research is all outside the solar system, he suggests working with Gordie, and gives her a recommendation. Years pass and she presents findings, more years pass and she has grad students of her own, more years pass and she needs to testify before congress to get funding for a rescue project. 66 • Paradise Unbound • 11 pages by Edward M. Lerner Very Good. The colonists on Paradise have had problems in the past. Now Paradise is going to be hit by an asteroid which will be an extinction level event. Sheila is getting as much data as she can, while most are seeking underground shelter. There's some interference along the southern coast putting the sparse population there uninformed. 77 • The Swarm • 2 pages by Mario Milosevic OK. Scientists launch thousands of tiny robotic spacecraft towards Alpha Centauri. The problem, it'll take eighty years for them to get there and another four for the images to come back. One worker decides on suspended animation, though she can't convince any of the others. 84 • The Annual Argument at the de-Extinction Board Meeting • 2 pages by Antha Ann Adkins OK. The other members are suspicious of Melissa when she nominates to bring back the Irish elk rather than neanderthals. 86 • Personalized People • 2 pages by Norman Spinrad OK+. The salesman's biggest problem always seems to be getting the parents to agree on the what they want. 88 • The Waters of a New World • 5 pages by Jennifer R. Povey OK. This planet looks great for colonization. Lots of oceans, rivers and plant life, no animals to speak of. What they didn't count on was the thing in the water that eats everything that falls into it and eats you from the inside if you drink it. 93 • News from an Alien World • 5 pages by Sean Vivier Good. JAXA is trying to find signals from the stars. Freeman tells them that the first signals we put into space were television transmissions, not some short repeated message. They find a newscast and it looks like the broadcasting country is on the brink of a rebellion. What Freeman knows instinctively about social dynamics he fails to apply in his personal life. 98 • A Family Rendezvous • 8 pages by Brendan DuBois OK+. A retired air force colonel buys passage to an orbiting hotel. The docking should have happened twenty minutes ago something must have gone wrong. Time to talk with the captain. 106 • From So Complex a Beginning • 11 pages by Julie Novakova Good/VG. The planet Ariadne only a billion years old had lots of life. The powers that be want to know if this occurred naturally or if it was engineered, so they sent Irena to check the findings. While she is remotely controlling a drone on the surface she finds something that has been deleted from the records. Now she realizes her real body is incredibly vulnerable and doesn't know who to trust. 118 • Conventional Powers • 14 pages by Christopher L. Bennett Good. Emry, the Green Blaze, is now the spokesperson for the Troubleshooters at a superhero convention. During her initial speech a would be hero speaks out against technological enhancements. Kind of a long setup, I was beginning to wonder if there was going to be a point to the story. 132 • A Square of Flesh, a Cube of Steel • 8 pages by Phoebe Barton Good+. Felicity has friends on La Mancha and doesn't want to leave. Her mother knows best and wants to take her back to Mars. If only the ship had come a little bit later, then she'd be an adult able to make her own decision. 140 • Shut-Ins • 2 pages by Christian Monson OK. Corbin and Nika have been trained from birth for their mission on the colony. Nika's view is no one asked her if she wanted to colonize, she is going to stay inside the dome. 142 • I Dreamed You Were a Spaceship • 2 pages by Ron Collins Poor. A man dreams that "you" were a spaceship. His wife? An AI that he coded? I skip poems to avoid this kind of thing. 147 • The Singing City • 5 pages by Michael Flynn OK. Bill is caught in the middle. His father was a hero, but never really around. Now his son is going to be on the first ship to Saturn using a light sail. 152 • Astroboy and Wind • 8 pages by Joe M. McDermott Good. Dome working is hard work and low pay. When Jorge falls to his death the company sends a counselor to the rest of the crew. 160 • Molecular Rage • 10 pages by Marie Bilodeau Good+. Stan is a scheduler for the matter transmitters in town. When he is late for work, everyone knows. When he tries to explain the cause, they won't listen or investigate his claim that there are unscheduled transmissions happening. 170 • Trespass • 12 pages by Tony Ballantyne VG. A group found some new technology, started fighting amongst themselves and brought the tech into a restricted area. Armstrong is called in to get these people out of there. 182 • Road Veterinarian • 17 pages by Guy Stewart Good/OK. Dr. Scrabble is kidnapped and taken to the Northwest angle. Thatcher convinces the veterinarian to help get back the escaping genetically modified piece of road. They have to figure out why the beastie is heading towards Canada, then comes the problem of making it want to come back. Good characters, I liked the banter between Javier and Thatcher. Accepted the science. The imagery was OK.

    This was a solid issue with a few stand out stories. Personal favorites included “ conventional Powers” because superheroes and cosplayers “ A square of flesh, a cube of steel” which moving the explored gender, sexual identity and family dynamics, “ Waters of a new world” which featured a group of women facing the possibility that they will fail to save humanity and “ molecular rage” who’s protagonist surprised me by how much he grew on me.

    All around, an excellent issue. Hardly a bad story in it. Gotta admit, I was surprised to find a superhero story in an issue of "Analog" - "Conventional Powers" by Christopher L. Bennett. What surprised me even more is the realization that the story is apparently a commentary on the Sad Puppies/Rabid Puppies Hugo Awards controversy from 2013-2017. From Adam Troy-Castro's fantastic, whimsical "Pecan Pie at Minnie and Earl's" to Guy Stewart's "Road Veterinarian", this was easily one of the best iss All around, an excellent issue.

    The story of how I came to be reading an issue of Analog goes back to an approaching tropical storm and my fears of how I would amuse myself if the power went out. Since most of my reading happens on my iPad, I didn't want to worry about having to ration my remaining battery, unsure when I would be able to plug it in again to recharge. In the end, the storm blew past and didn't cause much trouble at all: no power outages where we were. I enjoyed this.

There were some fun stories and… the factual science content was… able to keep my interest, even if it often felt like it sailed over my head without me fully comprehending it

    Most of the stories were very solid in this issue. I'm always happy to see Ed Lerner's and Adam Troy-Castro's stuff appear in Analog. Most of the stories were very solid in this issue. I'm always happy to see Ed Lerner's and Adam Troy-Castro's stuff appear in Analog.
