In This Issue
As the days begin to grow short and cold, what could be better than settling in with some nice, thoughtful science fiction to warm up your brain? The November issue is just the thing, with: “One Man’s Dignity,” by Mark Niemann-Ross, wherein we consider how best to make space for ourselves, literally and figuratively, as we grow older; Gray Rinehart’s “We Side with the Free,” in which members of a new armed force must rise to the occasion and be the team their credo says they are; “Love Pops,” by Genevieve Williams, where a reality show gets a little too real; Jay Werkheiser’s “The Desolate Void,” in which a pair of explorers dive deep into Enceladus and themselves; “The Salesman,” by Garrett Ashley, in which a cast-off piece of technology has bigger repercussions on a boy’s life than its purpose would suggest; “In the Absence of Instructions,” by Frank Wu, in which an automaton must decide for itself just how auto- it actually is, and, of course, all the regular features.
